Well, the finalist slates aren’t complete…. but I noticed that GayPatriot has been nominated in TWO categories:  Best LGBT Blog and Best Conservative Blog.   I’m more happy to be in the second category — thanks LesbianNeoCon!!!!

Anyway, I don’t have the energy for a vote-gathering crusade this year.   So even if we are in the final slate in either category — may the best blog vote hustler win.   My favorite prize in 2008 was hitting the Two Million mark!!

Media Malpractice Led To Ignorant Electorate

I just *had* to comment on this enraging story about how stupid those who voted for Obama are about current events and their own candidate.

The whole story is at How Obama Got Elected. 

The 12 “Zogby” questions were duplicated, one on the Keating scandal was added for extra balance. The results from Obama voters were virtually IDENTICAL in both polls. 

Here are the highlights:

35 % of McCain voters got 10 or more of 13 questions correct.   18% of Obama voters got 10 or more of 13 questions correct.

McCain voters knew which party controls congress by a 63-27 margin.

Obama voters got the “congressional control” question wrong by 43-41.

Those that got “congressional control” correct voted 56-43 for McCain.

Those that got “congressional control” wrong voted 65-35 for Obama.

The result of two polls and John Ziegler’s documentary are ghastly reminders of not only how terribly biased and devoid of information our public media outlets have become, but also how horrendous the public school system is when it comes to educating about current events, American history and civics.  

I’m just beside myself with anger about this story and how ignorance has elected an unprepared man to the White House.
