Luntz Debate 2

One of the staples of the election season on Fox has been pollster Frank Luntz’s focus groups. Tuesday night, however, may have provided fireworks no one could have predicted. Don’t believe me? What if I told you it involved Luntz referring to one of the members jokingly as Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and another participant dropping a “bullsh**” all on live TV?

It all happened in the span of about five minutes. After an undecided woman Luntz calls “Robin” talked about why she was impressed with Romney, Luntz quipped, “I want to know one thing: How did Ruth Bader Ginsburg get into my focus group?”

Shortly after, another participant launched into a tirade agaisnt the president:

“It’s because he’s lied about everything — he lied to get … elected in 2008, that’s why I voted for him — I bought his bull. And he’s lied about everything. He hasn’t come through on anything. And he’s been bullshi**ing the public with the media buying it…”
“Sean, I apologize,” a sheepish Luntz quickly responded. “You cannot do that.”

Watch below (the Ginsburg part starts at 1:40 — the bull comes at around 2:30):
