17. "Completely untrue". Except for these parts.
Edited on Thu Oct-02-08 08:19 AM by Fly by night
You continue to focus on exit polls here, despite the many other issues we are interested in. I think that's why you are "ignored" by so many here. (More on that later.)

You continue to disparage those who accept that the exit poll/reported vote disconnect in 2004 was real, and provided strong evidence for widespread election fraud (though certainly not the only evidence). In that respect, you are the closest thing to a holocaust denier that I have ever communicated with.

Despite your continual criticisms of exit polls, they continue to be administered in this country and elsewhere and their results continue to be announced almost immediately after polls close as "evidence" for who won the election. If the method was as fatally flawed as George H.W. Bush, Karl Rove and you continue to state, we would not still be using this method to identify "winners" before the final vote totals are released.

You did criticize Kathy Dopp, seemingly in great detail, when you spoke to the Utah reporter. She did not call me to discuss DREs; she called me (at your suggestion) to confirm your criticisms of Kathy. The reporter kept trying to draw criticisms of Kathy out of me, citing your comments that I would corroborate your statements about Kathy. (Why you would say that, and then not alert me to the fact that you had referred the reporter to me to confirm your criticisms of Kathy -- not to discuss DREs in general -- is still beyond me.) I continued to tell the reporter that I would have nothing to say about your criticisms of Kathy, or about Kathy herself, because that would weaken the effort to replace DREs in Utah. After 20 unsuccessful minutes of the reporter trying to get me to confirm your anti-Kathy comments, I was able to turn the conversation to Bruce Funk and to an upcoming showing of "UNCOUNTED" in Utah. (I also referred the reporter to David Earnhardt, who she interviewed and reported on prior to the Utah "UNCOUNTED" showing.)

Your condescending tone, and your unwarranted arrogance, here has been insufferable for quite some time. Most people have simply stopped responding to you here, and it has been clear for some time why that has occurred. Your effort to high-jack this thread is part of a years-long pattern that we have all suffered through for far too long on this forum. Speaking for me, I have had enough.

In my four years here at DU, I have only "ignored" two DUers, neither of whom are still here. You are now the third. Now, before you waste time posting another response here (which I won't be able to read), let me make a suggestion. In all my time here, I have never seen you post a single OP in this forum or in any other DU forum. Why don't you spend some time and energy doing that for a change, instead of continuing to make every OP about exit polls, when they are not. Goodbye.
