The Eight-Percent Idiots
From a week-old news story:
A majority of Americans now say the war in Iraq was not worth fighting, a view that has driven down the ratings of President Bushand Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released on Monday.Since 48% of the population voted for Kerry, this seems to me to indicate that there is a set of people in the country who voted for Bush or someone other than Kerry, while disapproving of Bush's major, nay, his signature policy, vis, the purely-optional war in Iraq.
Fifty-six percent of those questioned, a new high, said that the cost of the war outweighs the benefits and is not worth it. It marked a gain of seven percentage points from a poll conducted in July.
Question for those eight percent - What were you thinking?
And guess what? There's going to be years and years more of it. All because of you. Sleep well...
