Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

More required post-election reading

This, dashed off before turning in after a night on television looking at returns, is why Michael Barone is peerless among psephological pontificators and pundits.

Exit polls from 1992 on have consistently overstated Democratic percentages, most notably in the high turnout elections of 1992 and 2004. The late Warren Mitofsky, who created the first exit poll for CBS News in 1968, went back and examined the 2004 results and found that the biggest discrepancies between actual precinct votes and the exit pollsters’ results occurred in precincts where the exit poll personnel were female graduate students. All those discrepancies overstated the Democratic vote. Joe Lenski, the current EMR boss, tried to hire fewer young women as exit poll interviewers.

Hmm, it appears Barone and his friend Mitofsky are sexist pigs. Barone has failed to accurately read the election results. Liberal Democrats won, and the sexist, racist bigoted Republicans lost. It’s a new day in America, and I would suggest the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Office launch a full investigation of Mr. Lenski and EMR (Edison/Mitofsky Research) immediately. Accurate exit polls are a sad excuse for denying persons of a certain gender their right to full employment.

Um ... wow. Someone not get their coffee today?

Where exactly is one’s "right to full employment" spelled out? I’m unaware of that "right" being codified.

Did you mean "right to equal employment opportunity? Laws for that exist. But there’s nothing that guarantees the right to full employment.

No, there’s not.

I promise you, there’s not.

Before you put fingers to keyboard to argue with me, take a deep breath. There’s not.

Uh Don in AZ:

I think he was kiddin’
