Is Sarah Qualified??

I got an email link from a friend that I'm reposting here (with some of the capital letters toned down):

Subject: PBS Sarah Palin poll
PBS has an online poll posted asking if Sarah Palin is qualified. Apparently the repulican party platform knew about this in advance and are flooding the voting with YES votes.

The poll will be reported on PBS and picked up by mainstream media. It can influence undecided voters in swing states.
The email, of course, urged me to vote on the poll, and send email to all my Democrat voting friends. I've sent it to a few, but I'm also posting it here; here is the link to the PBS poll:

When I voted on it, the poll was running dead even at 49% to 49% - quia absurdum est.


  1. Hedera-

    Did you see this commentary by the NOW/PBS folks on the poll?

  2. I didn't, brian & becca - it's very interesting. Thanks for the link! As a web techie, I was interested in the cookie issue as a means of restricting votes to one per computer. I myself, using various email addresses, could have voted at least 9 times based on email address; and I normally use only one address.

    I guess they had some Chicago voting going on - vote early and often!
