Half of what you see, none of what you hear

The Boston Herald does a poll on its web site each week on a political question. Last week, the paper wanted to know "Would you vote for Sarah Palin if she runs for president in 2012?"

In perhaps the best indication of why self-selected polling is a bad idea, the results in the most liberal state in the nation were a shocking 43% yes, 57% no.

Well, ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer.

This post is the first time I've written about the 2012 election. There are about 40 months until we go to the polls.

Somehow Jay Severin will figure out a way to portray this as liberal bias.
