It's not the fact that Canada's neo-con cementheads once again freeped an online poll:
“All that freeping paid off,” crows the Big Blue Bigot, adding “The Blogging Tories collectively deserve a round of thanks for their efforts in this contest.” To the contrary, they deserve our abiding contempt and scorn for spoiling and subverting yet another online poll with their tactics of manipulative coercion. What could have been an interesting little exercise by The Beaver to determine some of our more infamous historical figures of note has instead been crassly perverted for purely partisan and ideological reasons.
Yes, it's an unbelievably childish thing to do, equivalent to mindless, valueless, online vandalism. But RT's missing the larger point. After deliberately going out to radically skew the results of a public opinion poll, some of these very same Blogging Tories then turn around and treat the results as if they're somehow meaningful:
My readers are probably quite aware that I despise Pierre Elliot Trudeau. I am so glad and he and fellow abortion lover Morgentaler ranked 1 and 3 on the worst Canadian list.
Take a minute to think about what sort of mental delusion it requires to do this -- to deliberately tamper with the results of a questionnaire, then present the hopelessly-inaccurate results as if they somehow reflect reality. How utterly deranged do you need to be to behave this way?
And no, I don't really want to know the answer. It was a rhetorical question, fer Chrissake.
