Poll Dancing

Poll DancingWhat a set of gams!

Spinning around that poll.

The phones ring asking you for your opinion.

Asking you in a computer voice to hold, a dancer will be with you shortly.

You hear accented voices in the background.

A guy asks you which dancer you are voting for. What characteristics do you admire?

Why give this information to this stranger? How do you know if there is bias in this pollster? The questions seem so stupid. This is not science. It’s dancing words all going into a fake poll product that someone is paying millions for. How do you know it is true? Who are the people passing on participating? How do you quantify them?

It is the Washington DC political shell game. Accusation and proclamation based on slippery pole moves. Winks and kisses. Expectations aroused….

The evening news amplifies the charade. Tones of certitude and importance roll from the anchor’s pearly teeth. Impeccable suit, white shirt, and tie that never show the jeans…

Breaking news from certified poll dancers fill the headline banners and scream urgency. We rush to the kitchen during the commercial so as to not miss the next erotic spinning. If you close your eyes the gal looks terrific.

Open your eyes and the truth is never what it seems.

Congressional hearings continue their dance…. in circles….

Love those heels and stockings… wink, wink….
