It’s now public: Editors rejigger polls. “A stunning tale today in the Salt Lake Tribune, however, reveals the dirty little secret of polls paid for by the media. The results are, in effect, owned by the media, and the media can insist that they be rejiggered.” Liars, damn liars and the waste-stream media.

The day is finally here. Early this morning, the fine folks at Dixville Notch, NH were the first people to cast their ballot. In a historical first, the 10 people split the vote. Five votes for President Obama and five votes for Mitt Romney. A sign of a long night? Probably.

Even though it’s practically impossible, I’m beginning to think these media types are even bigger liars then the politicians.

And as I have beenposting for a couple of weeks, polls can say anything. Don’t believe the polls, go vote. And from the wisdom of 11 pm, looks like nore Conservatives reliedon polls than voted. Just saying!
