Polls pissing me off

OK, there's a Newsweek poll, see? And it's all about Richard Clarkes
testimony for the 9/11 comission, and how it affects your feelings toward
Bush, whether the Bush Administration took terrorism as seriously as the
Clinton Administration did, whether the Bush Administrations focus on Iraq
distractracted from the fight on terrorism generally, you know... that kind
of thing.
Well, I voted in it, and saw the results. 65% said Bush didn't take it
seriously enough, Far more thought that Clinton took it more seriously,
yadda yadda yadda, all down the line. A vast, VAST majority of poll
respondants thought the Bush administration fucked it up big time.

WELL, when you see the news stories ABOUT the Newsweek poll, they're all "a
majority (65%) says Clarke's testimony has not affected their opinion of
Bush", and "A strong majority (65%) of Americans say former President Bill
Clinton and his administration did not take the threat of global terrorism
What the fuck?

I mean, what the FUCK IS UP WITH THAT?

You weren't supposed to read Newsweek THAT carefully. You were supposed to have
forgotten the first part BEFORE you read the second part. You should watch more

Now 30% less stank!

The great clown Emmett Kelly
swept up a spotlight with a broom;
Charlie Manson created one with his insanity.
"Bob" creates Klieg bulbs with his Pipe
the same way a child makes soap bubbles
in the yard with a plastic ring.
Thus we keep Church and state separate with a slapstick.

the sound of which has always seemed to me
the most civilised music in the world."

They are lying.

On the other hand, look up Barron's Online.
Barron's says "forget the polls".
What matters is the electoral college.

Their analysis is

Kerry 226
Bush 176
In Play 136

Kerry needs only Ohio and Florida.
The Bushy-wushy be in trouble.


Cheerful Charlie
