Blame Game

"Bloggers said to blame for bad poll info." Because, as you know, it was bloggers who went out and collected that information--no, wait, that was the National Election Pool. But it was bloggers who went out and reported it--well, after they read it off the AP wire. But . . . but . . . but webloggers are all to blame somehow! You webloggers! You stole the election!

Why is it that I hear that in my head in the voice of every bad guy on Scooby Doo? You know:

"I would've gotten away with it, too -- IF IT HADN'T BEEN FOR THOSE MEDDLING BLOGGERS!!"

Oh man. You had to bring THAT up. I'm still not over the part where Hollywood decided that show needed a movie based on it. Even when I was a kid, I knew it was a terrible show. But I'd watch it anyway because Superfriends was on after, which was also a terrible show, but I wanted so much a costume like Wonder Woman's . . . and bracelets that deflected bullets . . . and a truth lasso, with which every single woman should be equipped at the age of 18 . . . .

Okay, I admit it. I'm the blogger who was behind the early misleading exit polls. I figured that if I showed Kerry in the lead that it would energize the conservative base to get to the polls and at the same time the libs would sit back on their laurels until it was too late.

It worked!!

I watched Superfriends too. Also for the hot chick with the fetish gear.
