The Good Side Is Winning Again

I can’t find the official, final results, but the last time I checked those responding to yesterday’s Wolf Blitzer poll, “Whose views are most like yours when it comes to the Iraqi Crisis?” opted for Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) over President Bush by a margin of 76 percent to 24 percent.

Perhaps Blitzer was surprised by the result: today’s poll is even more slanted toward the desired outcome:

“Would you support a war with Iraq without France and Germany’s support?”

What the hell kind of question is that?

What if the reader wouldn’t support a war regardless of the stance taken by France and Germany?

No matter. The better of the available options, “No,” is currently leading with 72 percent of the vote.

And, yes, I know these are totally unscientific polls, but when the results so dramatically vary from the policy being crammed down our throats, I can’t help but find a little satisfaction.
