Well, isn’t this interesting?


The fetus fetishists are furiously humping a new poll that proves, proves I tell you, the majority of Canadians think Morgentaler receiving the Order of Canada is just icky and gross and wrong.

Except — ooopsie — there appear to be some, shall we say, issues with KLRVU, the company that conducted the telephone poll on behalf of the Campaign Life Coalition. If, you know by issues, I actually mean that they don’t seem to have a phone number. No, really.

Now maybe it’s just me, but I would think that a company that conducts polls via telephone would have at least one phone number. But then I have been accused of being too demanding.

JJ and Birth Pangs are allllllllllll over this. Go. Read.

This could get delicious. JJ is on fire, kids.

CC adds: Yes, JJ is doing some damned fine detecting there, but does it really compare to the talents of Blogging Tory, Junior Detective and Krime Kracker Kid Steve Janke? I mean, his investigation into Cindy Sheehan's vagina is still the gold standard against which everyone else will be measured, no?

What's bizarre about this poll is that it doesn't even matter if it's legit or not -- what's the point of it?

Who cares what percentage of Canadians are fetus-worshipping imbeciles? The issue is dead. Dead, dead, dead. Morgentaler won't be returning his OoC, and the committee that awarded it to him won't be demanding it back.

It's over.

So these frothing dingbats can screech and yowl and twist their thongs and have as many ragegasms as they want. It just doesn't matter. Let us all simply take a quiet satisfaction in how livid they are, and how maybe this will give them all a collective stroke.

Some day, the fetus fetishists will all be dead. We can always hope.

I don't think it will ever be over. If it's not this specific issue, it will be something else. So long as people can be convinced to accord others power by the simple means of telling them their lives and safety are in danger (and I plant the abortion bruhaha firmly at the feet of 'master race' control of lessers anxiety), you'll always need to have someone standing at the intersection ahead of the stampede with a big STOP sign telling them they've been gulled.

The sad part right now is that the official 'kid at the side of the road pointing at the Emperor' role is not, by default, being filled by the professional journalists. Maybe it never was.

The fourth and fifth estates seem more comfortable doing the bidding of the first and second estates at the expense of the third.

Does that make internet amateur journalism/op-ed the sixth estate?

The point is to sucker the rubes into cutting another cheque.

What buckets said.

The point is to keep the anti-abortion gravy train flowing. If it looks like no progress is being made (ie. Morgentaler's OC and 2 subsequent polls saying most of us are good with it), the nitwits might catch on and stop giving these fundie con artists all their hard-earned cash.

That is all, that is it, end of story.
