I had to laugh when I checked Bob Orr's blog today and found him whining about the mean old pollsters at Public Policy Polling. Orr thinks the fact that PPP is owned by a wealthy Democrat casts a shadow over the organization's credibility. He also points out that Carter Wrenn, a notorious right-wing hit-man, has questioned the reliability of PPP's polling. Then Orr goes on to complain that the corporate media lap it all up like it's nobody's business.
The irony of Orr's complaint is quite nearly breath-taking. This from a man who worked for years as one of Art Pope's henchmen, a wealthy Republican who spends upwards of $4 million a year sliming North Carolina new media with enough half-assed polling to gag a boa constrictor.
