A place to rant about politics, the media, and especially the electorate. Much like alcohol, the electorate is both the cause of, and the solution to, all of America's problems.

Media REFUSES to say the words "Edwards won"

I've heard exactly the same words from different talking-head-bots on MSNBC (mebbe I should switch channels, eh?)

Their online poll puts Cheney at 41%, Edwards at 59%. Decisive Edwards win, no? No.

They say instead:

"41% of you say that Cheney won the debate, while 59% think that Edwards made a stronger showing."

"Cheney won the debate"
"Edwards made a stronger showing"

Assholes. They just can't bring themselves to say, say, "By a 59/41 margin, poll responders say Edwards won the debate". Jackasses.
