Post-Debate Polls Say Obama Won (Yawn)
Ah, snap polls. Here is how they work: A news-gathering organization rounds up a bunch of plumbers, all named Joe, and puts them in a lockbox where they are forced to look at two people arguing for 90 minutes. At the end of this torture session, people ask themselves, "Whoblinked less? I'll go with that guy," and voila, you have your snap poll telling you Barack Obama won again.
