3. vote america 2012, monty torres host, rightwing spinmeisters

Another thing, if anyone's seen the late not so great tv show 'Vote America 2012' starring Monty Torres, rightwing subtle spinmeister extraordinaire. It was good in that it was a source for current polls, but it subtly supported romney, portraying him in a better light than obama, & vicy versy. Torres is a graduate of brigham young uni in utah I believe, so pretty obviously/probably a rightwinger.
Monty almost always pointed out that PPP was a democrat produced poll when they had results in obama's favor, as well as cbs being liberal station sometimes, while monty never once that I saw said that rasmussen was a rightwing based pollster, nor fox was the rightwing tv station of america (tho actually I think fox polls are fairly credible - fox poll finished middling 15th I think).

So goodbye to monty torres & 'vote america 2012', and hello to schadenfreude to boot, since monty's complaint on PPP falls pretty flat when you consider PPP was most accurate, eh, monty torres?
