New Frist Poll: Same Subject, Different Answer
Edited on Wed Nov-12-03 10:43 PM by boloboffin
Frist took down the old one and put up a new question:

Should the Senate minority block the body's Constitutional duty to provide the President's judicial nominees with an up or down vote?

The answer should be Yes, because the minority has the right to filibuster judicial nominees under the "advice and consent" clause of the Constitution.

Currently the poll's at Yes 38% and No 62%, with (yikes!) over 63000 votes recorded...send out the word and start voting now!

http://frist.senate.gov /

UPDATE: The poll has been changed again!!!!!!

Today's Question:
Which highly qualified nominees to the federal bench are being filibustered by Senate Democrats?

Janice Rogers Brown
Carolyn Kuhl
Priscilla Owen
All of the Above


It's not so easy when the cats fight back, is it, Mr. Frist?

2nd UPDATE: Oh, this bastage is a wily one. As noted below, the current vote total for the Justice for Judges poll is being reported with a different question!

http://frist.senate.gov/index.cfm?FuseAction=Polls.Resu...

The question (changed after the poll was closed) now reads:

Should the Senate perform its Constitutional duty to provide the President's judicial nominees with an up or down vote?

Lies and The Lying Liars Who Tell Them...I believe this deserves a letter to the Tennessean.

one from early, one from the end... there was a change in the middle somewhere i'm pretty sure.

As i state in my blog - if the Senate Majority leader is willing to alter the question in a vanity poll on his website to engineer "the right answer", can you imagine what Roveco would do with rigged voting machines on something that matters?

Should the Senate perform its Constitutional duty to provide the President's judicial nominees with an up or down vote?

Yes 53%
No 47%

103895 Total Votes



Can you imagine the staffers...

"What's going on!!! We rigged this!!! How can we lose!!!!"
"Shut up and take it down - fast - before they take the lead"
"I cant type this fast... oh crap, oh crap"
"TYPE FASTER"
"AAAAAHHHHHGGGGHHH!!!"
"Well, just change the freaking question then!!!"

hehehehehe

I wonder if Frist realizes that maybe, just maybe, he should be quoting Yamamoto

"I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."
