  •  Look at this!!! Majority OPPOSES flag amendment!! (0+ / 0-)

    Poll results show support for Iraq pullout, flag-burning amendment  .  The article seems to support the Wingnut position at first, but if you actually take the time to read the numbers (which few people actually do when they are given political polls like this) its clear that the MSM is going far out if its way to Lie and Bullshit about this important story.  
    54% of people OPPOSE the flag amendment, and 45% support it!!!  I have not heard a single fucking story over the past two days that mentioned this poll, all I have heard is right wing talking points about how a strong majority of people consistently SUPPORT a flag burning amendment.  Hell, even the USA today article where I got the poll data from had an irresponsibly misleading healine of that implied major support for the amendment.  It said that the poll showed support for the amendment.  I guess its technically true, because it shows the level of support, it just happens to be almost 10% less than the level of Opposition.  This can be a major positive campaign issues for Dems this year!!
