I love this poll! Even if it isn’t “scientific.” Only 44% of the Fox News audience gave Super Bowl Bill and”A?” And what’s with having to always put the punctuation inside the quote marks? Looks stupid. But not as stupid as a poll about Bill O’Reilly from Bill O’Reilly on Fox News. This is the kind of thing that gives all polls a bad reputation.
Reminds me of an argument I had with some damn Yankee just the other day.
A recent poll from Gallup asked the specific question. “Which comes closest to your belief: God created human beings pretty much in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years or so?” 46% of Americans agree. Upon hearing that the Yankee got himself into a BWHAHAHAHA laughing jag on the absurdity of polls.
Presenting the same information to most anyone living in Oklahoma or South of Cincinnati results in the same degree of disbelief with the anguished cry of “Only 46%! Are you nuts?” Part of our problem seems to be we can’t seem to add up all the populations of medium, small towns that make up rural America, to how many more old farts there are than young people, and the old Confederacy and surrounding states. Add up all three and you will find it’s not all just barren areas of pigcrap and kudzu.
But back to Bill-O. The question arises to some as to who has the biggest ego? Bill O’Reilly or Stephen Colbert? Those who ask the question have yet to figure out that Colbert is specifically playing the part of Bill O’Reilly. Also keep in mind that the average Fox News Bill O’Reilly viewer is 65+.
