Hinchey staffer asks DU for HELP! (DU this poll., please)
http://www.dailyfreeman.com/site/news.asp?brd=1769

Dan Ahouse runs the show for Hinchey down in D.C. Please help the BIG MO take on Kkkarl and the Orwellian right wing press. Please vote in this online poll. Dan's email message is below.
Thank YOU, DU!

Friends:

As you may know, Maurice has been outspoken over the past week about
his opinion that the White House political operation, led by Karl Rove,
was behind the leaking of false documents to CBS regarding George Bush's
military "service." His comments and unwillingness to back down from
the premise that a White House with a clear history of manipulating the
media could be behind this action have resulted in him being targeted
by a right-wing smear campaign.

One of our local papers, the Daily Freeman, has been conducting an
online poll asking readers if they agreed with Maurice's assertions. Until
recently, the response has been relatively equal. However, this
weekend, the right-wing bloggers began to flood the poll and now the results
are vastly one-sided.

I'm writing to ask for your help in stopping this manipulation of
public opinion about our Congressman. Please forward this information to
anyone interested in standing up to the right-wing distortion and ask
they they register their opinion in the poll. You can vote at
www.dailyfreeman.com .

Dan Ahouse.

I'll tell you now, if your not a fan of Mo's, this web site more than likely IS NOT FOR YOU.

Unless your Steve Greenfield, YOU DON"T BELONG HERE. If you don't know Steve, then learn about NYSCD22.

I can't wait to move to New Paltz and live with all the other hippies after I finish my teaching certificate!

And Hinchey definitely rocks! I would gladly trade him for my district's bootlicker for Tom DeLay, Sue Kelly.

feel free to call sometime... I'll help you get adjusted to living "downstate" (you currently think that you live "upstate". Soon you will move NORTH of where you currently live, and people will consider your new location "downstate". WILD!

52. The whole upstate/downstate thing is a conundrum to me...
I spent the first 24 years of my life in PA before moving to NY, and I've never understood the whole "upstate" thing. To people in Manhattan, the Bronx is considered "upstate". To people in Yonkers (like my wife's family), where we live in Mt. Kisco is considered "upstate". Then, you actually move "upstate" (outside of the city) and if you're in the mid-to-lower Hudson Valley, you're living "downstate".

It's enough to make your head explode if you think about it too much! :crazy:

40. Write to them!
newsroom@freemanonline.com

explain to them what freeping is, tell them their survey has been freeped, and ask them to post only surveys that do not permit people to vote more than once. Tell them their survey results do not match national polls.

That's what I did.
