DailyKos is having words with their pollster Research 2000, who they are accusing of fabricating data. Research 2000 is pushing back by declaring DailyKos founder Markos Moulitsas will face “criminal sanctions”. I guess that’s better than releasing your raw data to prove you didn’t just make stuff up…oh, wait, no it’s not. Way to look guilty, Research 2000!

After brushing off the congressman’s remark, the activist said, “I want to know why the federal government is not doing anything more to seal the borders of this country.”
“Well, we can’t get enough Minutemen armed,” Stark answered. “We’d like to. Get all the Minutemen armed so they can stop shooting people here.”
“We’ll try to get you some more arms and get you down there,” the congressman added.

“The question is, why is the federal government leaving our borders porous for anybody to come in?” the man said.
“Our borders are quite secure, thank you,” Stark responded. “How would you secure it? … Tell me, I’m not the government.”
The man then interrupted Stark, telling the congressman, “This a very serious matter, and you’re sitting there making fun of it.”
“I don’t have to make fun of you, sir,” Stark responded. “You make a fine job [of it] all by yourself.”
Republicans hate the troops, especially homeless troops.
