Polls schmolls

As much as I love politics, I loathe reading about new polls every fifteen minutes. Rasmussen, Gallop, CNN, Zogby, Real Politics, Politico, Fox News, USA Today, Newsweek, AP....there are more polls than there are skin cells covering my body, and it bums me out.

Which is why I love this piece by Penn & Teller. Not only do they catch Fox News using actors as members of a focus group, but they also lay out how totally ludicrous polling is. My favorite line: "Even if 50% of the world likes hobbit movies, they still suck."

Amen. Enjoy.
