This Is Just TOO Rich!

over at Joe Lieberman's website linked to an internally-funded push poll conducted recently saying Joe's ahead. The delicious irony however is that less than two hours before they did, this article hit the wires:Polling company owner pleads guilty to FraudSeptember 7, 2006, 8:24 AM EDTBRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP)_ The owner of a company that had done political and public opinion polls for several candidates has pleaded guilty to fraud for making up survey and poll results.
Tracy Costin, 46, of Madison pleaded guilty Wednesday before U.S. District Judge Janet C. Hall to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
I couldn't make this shit up if I tried folks!
Normally this is where I'd say "Go Ned!" but right now Joe's doing a better job of imploding his campaign than his opponent is so today I say, "Go Joe!" LOLUpdate:
The firm linked to on Lieberman's blog is not the same firm as the one who's CEO just plead guilty to wire fraud. If you read my post again, you'll notice that I never state that it is the same firm. What I found so 'delicously ironic' is the fact that barely an hour after a polling firm that boast Joe Lieberman and George Bush as it's former or current clients, the Lieberman for Lieberman campaign puts up a post bragging about a new poll they
commissioned conducted by a notorious right-wing push-polling firm that boast Joe Lieberman and George Bush amongst their clients. However for clarity I'm posting this update. I still think it's hilarious though.
