A perfect example of how wingnuts exemplify strident ignorance

This should do it:

A new poll shows that President Obama continues to have high job approval ratings in New Hampshire.

The latest University of New Hampshire poll shows that 61 percent of the adults polled say they approve of the job Obama is doing, 33 percent disapprove and 6 percent are neutral. The figures are similar to his national ratings in a recent Gallup poll.

The poll reached 558 randomly selected adults by phone between June 24 and July 1. The margin of sampling error for the survey is plus or minus 4.1 percentage points.

Now look at the comments. In addition to fomenting all sorts of nutty, paranoud bullshit (in the case of “NH,” at least), none of the people who have chimed in to complain about the poll (only three as of this writing) has the slightest fucking clue about either who was polled or what the results mean. “Armyvet” doesn’t understand that a random sampling of 558 people yields he same margin of error no matter what the size of the greater whole. And none of these clowns grasps the fact that the poll was conducted by UNH faculty, not at UNH. They assume that the poll was of college students or was otherwise localized to the NH-MA border (and New Hampshire wingnuts hate Massachusetts) and use this as a basis, though not the only basis, for their tiresome, histrionic bullshit.

Stupid people are little different from mosquitoes. They’ll always be around, and although they are not fundamentally responsible for being the loathsome creatures they are, they’re pests in the extreme who are ideally avoided via physical barriers or some other form of repellent. The excoriating thing is that they manage to figure out how to fuck each other even when they can’t figure out how to exit an 8′ x 8′ room with four walls and an open door. And how they love the Internet! One could make a full-time career out of correcting their misconceptions, lies, distortions, and propagated rumors. Christ with a GED parchment.
