If you ever spent any time at the rabid rightwing website Free Republic, you know that they love to encourage their membership to skew internet polls by voting en masse in support of their point of view. Well, it seems that another rightwing site takes umbrage at that same thing happening to them:
Andrew Sullivan story:
LGF removes the Republican candidate from their Internet polling. Here's the rationale:
They aren't "cheating," as in voting multiple times, but they have sent out emails and posted the link to our poll at several spots on the web, urging people to go vote for Paul. The end result is the same -- the poll results are skewed, and it's not an accurate measure.
So conservative online enthusiasm and activism is now officially forbidden by the LGF thought police. They're scared, aren't they? The reaction from the Rove-bots strikes me as unwise. All they're doing is giving Paul the oxygen of an insurgent outsider. And as we know well from the Bushies, if it's them against insurgents, the insurgents win.
