In a sign of the continuing partisan division of the nation, more than two-in-five (42%) voters say that, if it is found that President Bush did not tell the truth about his reasons for going to war with Iraq, Congress should hold him accountable through impeachment. While half (50%) of respondents do not hold this view, supporters of impeachment outweigh opponents in some parts of the country.
CNN and MSNBC have both reported that, that same poll also shows that 1 in 4 republicans support impeaching bush, if he lied, and a lot of dems are saying that it shows bush's losing ground with the right... blah.. blah.. blah...
But lets face it. No one is ever going to be able to convince a republican that bush lied. Was wrong? Maybe. But most republicans are too hardlined to ever believe that their guy lied.
So it's a stupid poll.
...and if dems are smart they'll use it as an opportunity to say that republicans are out of touch with themselves, and focus the media into asking how much evidence would it take to convince republicans that bush did lie.
Now there's a 'question of the day' that I would like to see.
I'd also like to see the dems shame the 75% of republicans that support bush even if he did lie.
And while they are shaming people maybe they could take a moment to ask CNN what the hell is up with their polls.
After bush's lame speech, CNN polled 300ish people on what they thought of it. 50% were republicans. 25% Dems, and 25% consisted of people to stupid to pick a party.
...and sure enough 50%ish said they liked it.
And I like to say something cleaver here about CNNs stupidity/bias...
...but I can't. Our media disappoints and saddens me.
