I just got the *worst* push-poll I've ever heard. It was from "CPRAction", funded by NOM (National Organization for Marriage), and it made me *so* angry! They introduce the call with the note about the NH senate approving same-sex marriageThey ask (robocall): "Do you agree that marriage between only one man and one woman should be legal?"

Which, of course, sounds like you're being asked if heterosexual marriage should be legal. Well, duh. Why not?

But I couldn't just say yes, because they want their poll to say "99% of respondents believe that only heterosexual marriage should be legal!"

So I said "That's a very poorly worded question."

And the robot said "You must answer yes or no."

So I said "No."

Then it asked if I'd donated to a campaign, church, religious organization, or other non-profit groups. Well, I have -- quite a lot of the first and last categories, actually -- so I said yes.

And then it asked for demographics. "Are you male?" (Because that's the default, of course.) "No." "Are you above the age of 50?" "No." "This concludes our call. This poll has been funded by CPR Action and the National Organization for Marriage."

I yelled, "You suck!!" into the receiver but there was no human to hear me.

Damned robots. Damned NOM. How twisted is this so-called "poll" going to turn out, the way they've worded it?
