Yes, news that isn’t depressing! Maybe you think you’ve wandered onto the wrong site by mistake, but you haven’t. I’ve just been hit on the head with a flowerpot, and have the urge to call myself “Jimmy Brightside”.
I’m not a particular fan of marriage, but I am a fan of the idea that gays are human beings, so these are good things.
We’ve also got this news:
Bush’s Iraq speech draws career-low TV audience
The bad news there is that all four major US TV networks and the three big cable news channels bothered putting him on the air for his propaganda stunt.
Also, California governor Arnold Schwazenegger is becoming vastly unpopular, with a 37% approval rating (when his predecessor Gray Davis was recalled, his rating was a lowly 24%).
And finally, this additional poll result:
First of all, the fact that a mainstream polling organization (Zogby) would even ask this question speaks volumes.
Second, the fact that so many people answered the question this way implies that a significant number of Americans believe that they were indeed misled into war.
And third, damn, that’s a lot of people who want to impeach the president.
I think that study could use a little nudge. I recommend that everyone write a quick letter to the editor of their local paper, and maybe to their Congressional representatives, about any topic, as long as you can cite those numbers, that the recent Zogby poll shows that 42% of Americans think that the president should be impeached if he did indeed misled the country about the war.
