Welcome To LGF EchoPollingPosted: September 7, 2011
Just when you thought it couldn’t get more inane at The Swamp, Charles Johnson out does himself. Now he’s reinvented PollDaddy, and is hawking it to his minions for their subblog entertainment. Nevermind that PollDaddy provides unscientific polling fun for bloggers and has no value whatsoever in the grand sandbox (i.e., “If you were a Gummy Bear, would you still love mermaids?”).
What is a “SubBlog” you ask? It’s a tedious blogging platform like that
provided allowed by peeps like Charles Johnson for those too stupid to figure out free platforms like Blogspot, Tumblr or WorpDress on their own. It allows them to run their own pretend blogs that nobody reads, just like the rest of us do.
The main difference is that we don’t have the Sword of Icarus hovering over our willies.
What’s interesting is that Charlie decided to mess with common polling script, and our antennae are twitching a bit. Whereas PollDaddy is completely anonymous, does anyone trust Charles Johnson any more?
Who is the first to jump the shark and kiss the cork? Our buddy Gas812, and he posts it on his subblog for all the world to mock. He farts a poll to flush out hidden contrarians with a simple question:
“Who would you vote for today – Obama or Perry?”
Here are the comments first. Rightwingconspirator blows donkeys right out of the park, as he/she didn’t even read Gus’ questionnaire. Killgore fishes, jvic is a puss and Virginia Plain is a sock. RWC comes back for one more donkeyblow, and the game is over.
But Wait! There’s more!
Gus, you royal piece of embarrassing ignorance – you want some poll results? Here ya go, squamousbrain.
It’s way too easy to embed PollDaddy into blogs, so why didn’t Chuck do that? He didn’t re-invent the thing just for his lizards, and I suspect there may be some IP code captures in there as well. Too soon to tell.
Oh yeah. Here’s an anonymous poll. Have at it, Gus.
