    and allowing for the possibility that Obama's approval numbers may even grow, my question is this:

    Since fucking when do we celebrate the predictable, successful result of the gate defending mass media's relentless campaign to misinform the electorate?

    Is that what we're about now?

    Yippee fucking yay, we win! because the PTB have managed to hide from the electorate the sick fact that the New Deal and the Great Society are being sold down the river?

      news is news and we're going to cover it. Just like we cover Greg Sargent: GOP on verge of huge, unprecedented political victory.

      People have mixed feeling about it, even those who dislike the outcome (and it's safe to say no one likes the outcome.)

        the participants in this thread. (I thought the wording of my criticism would have made that clear.) I have no issue with the presentation of the poll data. News is news.
