Overlooked in the current, savage disemboweling of the wretchedly dishonest KLR Vu poll is a fairly simple question -- why was it even done in the first place? Let's refresh our memories regarding the poll question:
Do you believe abortionist Henry Morgentaler deserves the Order of Canada?
And, sure, it might be amusing to know the answer to that but what was the point of running a poll to ask people their opinion about something that has already occurred and for which their opinion would have no value whatsoever?
As I've already pointed out, the OoC award to Dr. Morgentaler has happened. It's done. It's over. It's a fait accompli. And all the right-wing whining in the world isn't going to change that so I ask once again -- what was the point of the poll?
Typically, people commission polls because they want to use the results to affect something, perhaps to change peoples' opinions or something. More to the point, polls cost money, so who exactly decided to commission a poll and pay KLR Vu to do it, knowing full well that the results -- no matter what they were -- would mean absolutely nothing?
Deluded dingbats like SUZANNE want to argue that the KLR Vu poll was somehow legitimate. Fine, says I, believe what you want. For the sake of argument, say it was legitimate. And I ask again -- who gives a shit? It means nothing, it affects nothing, it changes nothing. And someone, somewhere, must have paid for it.
How fucking stupid was that?
