I love this. Powerline is grumbling that Public Policy Polling's "finding [of a 44-43 Akin lead] is absurd.... [I]t comes from a flawed poll.... PPP significantly oversampled Republicans.... Typically, it’s polls do not significantly oversample Republicans."
But hey, they're your Republicans. Of course Democrats would prefer that Akin remain in the race. And if GOPers were even half as sane as Powerline believes they are, any oversampling of them should have righteously doomed Akin's hopes of pulling out a desperate victory.
In brief, Powerline is arguing that Missouri Republicans simply cannot be expected to show any smarts, yet they and their fellow Republicans across this troubled republic are somehow the cat's meow when it comes to intelligently seating the next United States Senate. Go figure.
