They’ve reset it numerous times, hoping to get the results they want. This morning, they’d wiped off the prior results again. It only had about 20,000 votes and 89% were on Palin’s side.

Its a pretty pathetic contrast in their coverage, isn’t it? Not that I expect anything better from a celebrity tabloid, mind you, especially one owned by a diehard Obama supporter.

Over 400,000 votes? Methinks US readers also are angered by the smears. It is so over the top.

If I were a conspiracy theorist, I would say that McCain has “baited a trap” for the liberal media, and they took the bait.

Revealed today that US Magazine publisher is a huge B.O. supporter (and I don’t mean body odor). He has donated generously to B.O.’s campaign.

Actually, the poll allowed multiple votes, so we got a little carpal tunnel last night Freeping it :) About 100K seem to have come in since then though. Most Republicans won’t read a tabloid like US Weekly.

The Drive-By Media COMPLETELY overplayed their hand with this Palin BS. And you can tell by their relative quiet today that they damn well know they did.

Using a kid to get to her mother is not only reprehensible, it is psychotic. They revealed their agenda in a manner guaranteed to offend real Americans in both parties.

My guess is they are hearing it loud and clear from their stockholders, too.

I’ve seen some media travesties. This is most certainly the worst.

I made a post at some thread here week which stated that, while I STILL dislike J. Sidney intensely, I am developing a grudging respect for his abilities as a campaigner.

THIS week, my respect grows ever “grudginger”.

Maybe I’ll email them and let them know the next time I see their rag I’ll be sure and put a couple of “People” magazines in front of it...just to keep their circulation numbers low.

I can’t promise to “never buy their magazine again”, since my trash suffices to cover what they report.

I talked to individuals at all of our local Downs Syndrome chapters and offices as well as the one for the state in Austin, gave them the info re the magazine and asked if they would issue a statement. Don’t know if we will ever know whether they do or not but they certainly all listened and appeared to have taken down info.

Us Magazine Takes Down Palin Poll Becasuse 71% Supported Palin

My inexpert thought is that this is HIGHLY significant.

I don't know of ANYONE in my personal circle that reads US magazine.
I didn't even know it was still published even though I do check
the magazine racks at the local Barnes and Noble maybe once a month.
Thus I suspect this poll probably got plenty of votes supporting
Palin from folks in the Mushy Middle and Democrats.

Interesting — I’m cubicle bound so I have to ask — has the media toned down their Palin attacks today?

I have AFN News which does two-hour rotations between Fox, MSNBC abd CNN throughout the day. When I got "home" from work, I flicked on the news and it was (barf!) MSNBC's shift. That evil Andrea Mitchell was interviewing a variety of people and none of them mentioned Bristol's pregnancy. They've gone back to the "We don't know much about her... what we do know is negative...she doesn't seem to have much experience... she's really not a reformer....she was in favor of the Bridge to Nowhere..." and on and on and on.

So, they're still going very negative on her, but they seem to have backed off of the pregnancy for the time being.

Now, AFN is showing Fox, but it's Shep Smith, so not much improvement. ;-)
