The first is one of the best e-mails we've ever gotten. We're accused of being on the take for Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee, but also of being 'partisan hacks' in the same e-mail. Doesn't it have to be one or the other?
Interestingly this came during business hours from the state e-mail address of someone in Georgia. Sonny Perdue, if you need any help finding under productive positions to cut in tough budget times this might be one of them. The e-mail:

Subject: The Obama vs Palin Poll
I find your study biased against Governor Palin. First, of all it is too early to be doing a poll for the 2012 presidential contest and you are obviously working for either Romney or Huckabee. The poll is garbage unless you also do a comparison of other potential nominees. Mr. Romney recently won the CPAC straw poll so I would be interested to see a poll done with a Obama vs Romney hypothetical matchup and a Obama vs Huckabee. McCain was right not to pick Romney for VP. I watched the primaries and he is such a fake and you can see right through him. Also, it would be wise to ask potential 2012 voters the question whether or not they would vote for a Mormon for President. I would be interested to see that number. Until, you can be an objective force in politics and not a partisan hack, please go away Mr. Jensen.
The second one comes from a North Carolinian and I post it here as a reminder of who Republican politicians have to pander to during primaries in this state, and why it makes it harder for them to win general elections:

What a gathering of lying, liberal, and misleading sons of bitches. I love your polling against Rush Limbaugh. Rush could probably have a bowel movement smarter than all of you ragheaded, muslim, chicago thug loving bastards at this phony group. Rush scares you socialist assholes to the core. I noticed how many dems were polled. If Rush has the so called disapproval ratings, why does he have so many listeners in NC? Why has he been on WPTF 680, WSJS 600, and many others in NC since about 1988?
You lying bastards, you can poll just the libs in chapel hill and raliegh and come up with anything you want. I love what you lying scumbags are doing. carville, begalla, and greenberg thought they had a great idea last fall and would take on the Gorilla of talk radio. I see they called off the dogs after they learned the audience grew to unprecedented numbers for EL Rushbo. Please keep up the lying because you are growing his audience.
This phony group of pathetic imbeciles proves the gene pool needs and enema.
Have a nice day and screw all of you assholes.
