How Is Chicago Thug Barack Obama Threatening People Today?

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Dick Morris Spank Book

Sexboat toe goblin Dick Morris has some thoughts on the typically thuggish Chicago regime, and how they “Rough Up Gallup for Polls They Don’t Like.” Get ready you guys, because it is terrifying!

In a scene right out of a typical authoritarian regime, Fox News reports that “employees at the venerable Gallup polling firm suggested they felt threatened by Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod when he questioned the methodology of a mid-April poll showing Mitt Romney leading the president – according to internal emails published Thursday.”

That poll that sent Axelrod ballistic showed Romney leading Obama 48-43 percent.

The Daily Caller published e mails that started when Axelrod sent a tweet to Gallup saying the tracking poll was “saddled with some methodological problems” and directing followers to a National Journal story in which a professor suggested outdated sampling.

According to the email chain titled “Axelrod vs. Gallup,” the White House in addition asked that a Gallup staffer “come over and explain our methodology,” which was apparently perceived as a subtle threat.

Fox News reported that “a Gallup official said in an email he thought Axelrod’s pressure ‘sounds a little like a Godfather situation.’”
Gallup refused to change its methodology to suit the White House.

It does! It does sound a little like a Godfather situation! Thank God those brave Gallupers stood up to these mafiosi running the country and demanding that Gallup show its work or else they won’t get even partial credit!

Thug Life. Crunk.

[DickMorris]

actor212 September 10, 2012 at 11:10 am

So lemme get this straight: a candidate running for office calls into question the methodology of a pollster because his poll doesn't ring true with other polling they've seen and the campaign would like to compare notes to see if their own methodology should be altered, and somehow this is the equivalent of the Valentine's Day Massacre?

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: It is with deep shame that I recognize Dick Morris and I share an alma mater.

Of course, so does David Axelrod, so I feel better.

Oh, by all means; being asked to explain your methodology is EXACTLY the same as waking up to find a horse head in your bed. Anyone can see that! David Axelrod is clearly a head-busting Mafioso; the droopy mustache and professorial demeanor are merely a disguise.

Somebody needs to fetch Dick Morris some smelling salts and a fainting couch.

prommie September 10, 2012 at 11:15 am

Nice poll you got here. It would be a shame if something was to happen to it.

See, this isn't no kind of thuggery or intimidation, Now for some real world-class texas-style media intimidation, imagine if Obama could force a fucking broadcast network to fire a longstanding evening news anchor for daring to criticize him. That could never happen, right, an incompetent war-mongering lying fool of a president getting a person of the stature of say Dan Rather summarily dismissed. Wonder what the actual conversations sounded like in that case?

FakaktaSouth September 10, 2012 at 11:27 am

Because there is an actual list longer than my leg of people who deserve to be shitcanned for their awful "journalism," this is all so much more terrible. I hate that Dan was able to get caught up in such and i know he does too. Being bested by a fool is the absolute worst.

Chet Kincaid_ September 10, 2012 at 11:45 am

Do we even need to mention the way Republican thugs roll: reveal the names of CIA agents when their spouses talk about inconvenient facts; reveal the real names of Seal Team members on FOX when they write books about smoking Bin Laden, if said book might help Obama?

FakaktaSouth September 10, 2012 at 11:50 am

There are some traitorous heatherns in their mix, no doubt about it. It just gets to be another one of the mind-screw tactics, though, the way they come out on every angle with a victimization and a axe-handle. No matter what is said, these people are able to twist and deviate any concept for some sort of rationalization of wrongheaded asshattery. I am sick of it, I would just like for them to be whatever terrible things they are and lets just have to fight that.

prommie September 10, 2012 at 11:57 am

How about sending anthrax to all the "liberal" media organizations and to selected "liberal" senators, so as to, you know, actually physicall intimidate, in the scariest way (contagion is a deep nasty skeevy fear), their opposition, and to grease the skids for their illegal war for oil.

I started reading the wonkette then, when it was a gossip thing for Hill staffers, and I was working with a bunch of Hill staffers, who worked in one of the Buildings that got an anthrax mailing, and who all had to take cipro as a prophylactic measure, and they were all genuinely truly scared, for their fucking lives.

FakaktaSouth September 10, 2012 at 12:04 pm

Hey, do not complain about ACTUAL terrorism, when there are things to make up about nonsense here. Having to take cipro is gross, I hate antibiotics on the whole, almost as much as anthrax. But I love Joey Belladonna and Scott Ian, that band was super fun live.

Gallup has been fudging data since they got started. I was once called by Gallup for a poll about my preferences between Blockbuster and Hollywood Video. Every fucking question was rigged so I would have to answer "Blockbuster" and there were way too many questions. I became convinced that it wasn't a poll, but an ad disguised as one to put BLOCKBUSTER in my forebrain for the rest of my life. Gallip is especially notorious on polls about religous belief. No credibility at all.

People who do data collection and analysis should expect questions on their methods and be able to defend those methods as a regular part of their job. It's called peer review in the research community.

Have they forgotten that W, Rummy, Condi, Let The Eagle Soar and Evil Dick sat around scripting actual torture of political prisoners?

Is this the poll where they only called up FoxNews viewers?

Stuff it , Dick. Or we'll send Rahm over there to punch some hippies.

MacRaith September 10, 2012 at 11:55 am

Of course it was threatening. He was using big words and all. Like "methodological" – that's six whole syllables right there. It's the kind of word that can do some serious damage to a simple mind.

PinkoPopulist September 10, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Yeah, I mean clearly the people at Gallup don't understand what it means.

ZING!

arduinohacker September 10, 2012 at 12:09 pm

What, were there some oranges rolling around the Gallup offices?

Actually, I think it's a GOOD thing for Gallup to slant right, it might frighten a few more folks to contribute to Obama and show up to vote.

First they criticized our sampling methodology–and we did nothing.

Do horse heads count in the nominator or the denominator for the poll results? Or is it a standard deviation?

"How Is Chicago Thug Barack Obama Threatening People Today?"
*checks picture*
Um…
Sure, I'll take a guess. Why not?
By making them wear rather uncomfortable-looking toe rings?

"employees at the venerable Gallup polling firm suggested they felt threatened by Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod when he questioned the methodology of a mid-April poll"

Wait… So they felt *threatened* by some guy in a suit questioning the methodology of one of their polls?
If this is within a hundred miles of being true, they're bigger pussies than Puss Pussington, the Mayor of Pussyville.

Seriously. They have no authority over you. The proper response is fuck off bozo.

I'm told by people who clean their houses that a Swiffer is a thing for mopping the floor with.

i imagine there's a few victims of authoritarian regimes that might disagree with this assessment.

sorry no snark. it infuriates me when these people cheapen actual suffering with their petty tantrums.

i want to immediately transport them to pyongyang.

Jeezuzz are Dick Morris and the Gallup guy stupid. Godfather is NY mob, horse head in your sheets, sleeps with the fishes stuff. Chicago style is Capone, St. Valentine's Day and all that. If it was Chicago style they would be a bloody mess bleeding all over the banquet table.

David Axelrod is one tough Jew.

Guys in my high school used to have ugly biker chicks sit on their lap all day long, it was no big deal.

As a survey researcher and former political pollster, I got one thing to say: He CRAZY! Pollsters and survey researchers question each others methodologies as frequently as they drink coffee during election season. No two pollsters will ever agree on what is right and wrong with a specific methodology.

Gleem McShineys September 10, 2012 at 3:37 pm

They pull a standard derivation, you pull a weighted average. He sends one of yours to the methodology drawing board, you send one of his to the White House. *That's* the *Chicago* way!

Dick Morris yet another neocon who assured everyone that Saddam had nuclear weapons in order to start a war with Iraq. A war that has thus far killed over 5000 US soldiers, wounded another 30,000 to the extent that 50% of the soldiers who served in Iraq are on disability. Thanks to their cute little manipulation of intelligence over 2 million Iraqis are dead or have had to flee their homes.

The list goes on….three trillion dollars wasted. Newborn children in Iraq are being born horribly disfigured because of the depleted uranium scattered over the landscape by our armor piercing shells.

With all of this misery caused by those who promoted the war…you would think they would never be allowed to voice their opinion again, but Bill Kristol, Morris and the rest of the cabal continue their anti-Muslim demonetization without interruption.

I am sure that Poppy Bush's ancient CIA connections, going back to when he was in on the killing of Kennedy, were still all willing and able to rise to the occasion when Poppy put out the call to help out his cretinous offspring.
