But doesn't go far enough: Kevin Drum did something constructive today. He named a journalist's name.
The journalist is Mary Hagen, of The Hill. Drum quoted her writing this:
HAGEN (9/28/16): Donald Trump on Wednesday criticized the media for saying online post-debate polls “don’t mean anything,” as he continues to brag about winning the surveys many consider unscientific and unrepresentative."I love how reporter Lisa Hagen carefully says that 'many' think online polls are unscientific," Drum writes. "I think the phrase she's searching for is 'everyone with a three-digit IQ.' These polls are clickbait, nothing more."
At a rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, the GOP presidential nominee cited online polls from Time magazine and the conservative Drudge Report that showed him leading Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton following Monday night’s presidential debate. “I’m winning all of these polls, hundred of thousand of votes,” Trump said. “I have to sit back and you have to sit back and hear these polls don’t mean anything.”
Drum is right, of course. And he actually named the reporter's name, something liberals almost never do.
Darlings, it simply hasn't been done! Over the course of the past thirty years, this is one of the (many) ways we got in our current mess.
That said, Drum didn't go far enough. This is what an honest reporter would have said in The Hill:
HAGEN, REWRITTEN: Donald Trump on Wednesday criticized the media for saying online post-debate polls “don’t mean anything,” as he continues to brag about "winning" some of the on-line surveys which are, in fact, unscientific and unrepresentative.It isn't that many people say they're unscientific. It isn't that everyone says they're unscientific.
Such surveys are unscientific, full stop! We were glad to see Drum name a name. But why all the joshing around?
No poll is scientific. Many siggest that as a rule of thumb. We agree. That said, not entirely. In our opinion, it is a very rough rule of thumb. Thumbs are a scientific fact.ReplyDelete
Why did you waste time posting this?Delete
If she were to say "three digit IQ" she would be insulting most of the African-American community, since the average IQ of blacks in America is 85-90 with about 1/5 over 100 and 1/10 over 110. This does not mean blacks are lesser people, but you'd never know it listening to people like Drum divide people between those with IQ's higher or lower than 100. IQ is largely innate and referencing this as a measure of a person is no different than referencing race.ReplyDelete
Most progressives are self-flattering hypocrites with very little compassion, and those who reference IQ as a measure of a person's value or of the validity of his opinions are truly "deplorable."
You been checked lately?Delete
I think you are taking his statement a bit too literally.Delete
The main problem with the online polls isn't that they aren't scientific, but that they are being gamed. The alt-right has figured out how to vote multiple times and they have posted directions for doing so on websites frequented by Trump supporters. The polls are thus corrupt.

Project much, Trump chump?
Another problem with online polls is that people with very strong views are more apt to respond. Trump does well because he has a cadre of fairly passionate supporters, even though most valid polls show Hillary ahead.Delete
D in C, which is why they are not entirely useless in an election in which an enthusiasm gap could be a decisive factor.Delete
Anon 7:27. IQ is determined by the nature of the test and reflects cultural influences rather than "innate something or other".Delete
I venture that your IQ test results were inclusive.
"Can't score because subject is one sick puppy."
IQ was cited by Kevin Drum and the aptitudes it tests are largely innate. Bigot progressives like to throw the racist measure around when they engage in what in their uneducated sociology major minds is an argument.Delete
IQ is also influenced by exposure to lead in childhood.ReplyDelete

Poor humorless Bob - never satisfied.
Who's never satisfied? Look in the mirror.Delete
Does this show hypocrisy? (Oh, my!)
Per your instruction, I looked in the mirror.Delete
You are right: all that I saw was a lack of satisfaction and hypocrisy.
Thank you for setting me straight. Who would've thought a tongue-in-cheek remark about a tongue-in-cheek remark could be so cathartic.
My marriage of 3 years was sinking and i was devastated. My husband broke up with me and I got no explanations from him. for me to get him back, i have to find a solution, I went to 3 different spell casters they all failed to bring back my husband, I really wasn’t sure anymore if spells were real so as i was making a search one morning i saw some great reviews about email@example.com, I was a bit skeptical at first but a friend asked me to try and see what happens, so I requested for a love spell from this spell caster, he said he will take his time to do a love spell that will bring my man back to me, after some days my husband reconciled with me, It felt good to have my husband back, when he returned he said he would never leave me again. I saw him transform, all thanks to Dr happy he was like a father to me when i loose hope. now my lover is more open, with happy Spell I know love spell is real, Thanks to Dr happy Spell for getting me my man back.

You forgot to add criticizing the right as out of touch and brain dead. Those darlings never ever should have done that because they alienated potential voters, amirite? Now as we've come to realize this opinion was spot on. Who in their right mind would want to sway these hate mongers? Never mind...
Do you really see no difference between name calling (braindead is the least of it) and pointing it out (by name) when someone has written something that is incorrect, so they will be motivated to get it right next time?Delete
Everything is a sledgehammer to you guys.
The consistent help I got from King Omituko’s Love Solution gave my marriage a second chance and increase the wellbeing of my family. When I was suffering from damaged heart, his love spell brought the final solution I needed and also the way to a brighter world.ReplyDelete
I remembered when I constantly cry every night for more than a week after my husband left me. I was seriously going crazy, he wasn’t the man I marred anymore and I missed the old him so much. It was a nightmare, I didn’t know what to do anymore before I contacted King Omituko via email@example.com for help which was gladly rendered, and he proved he is a genuine caster to me and my family.
Throughout my entire marital life, I have never had a happy, peaceful, lovely, romantic and prosperous home like I do now. All thanks to King Omituko Love Solution via firstname.lastname@example.org. He is indeed a savior.
