I Got Push-Polled
It started out pretending to be a robo-poll, asking me whom I intended voting for next Tuesday, in the Republican primary for Congress, Dave Schweikert or Ben Quayle. I responded Quayle. Then it started getting ugly. If I knew that Ben Quayle had done X nefarious deed, would that make me more likely, or less likely to vote for him? I pushed the button for more likely. There were three "If then" statements; by the end I was expecting them to ask me if I'd still support Ben Quayle if I knew that he supported marriage between a man and a sheep.
Schweikert's negative advertizing has gotten quite a bit of publicity in the last week or so; both Jon Kyl and John McCain have denounced his ads, as has former governor Fife Symington.
