    Why "interactive polls suck"

    1. They depend on someone with a computer
    1. They are not random (someone makes a conscious effort to go to them)
    1. They are easily hacked
    1. There is no proof that you don't have the same person polling as 20

    I have a friend who does this for a living. She emailed Zogby once when they showed Dubya in high favor ("this is bullshit" the response was "thats what the numbers say").

    There is an old phrase regarding computers: Garbage In - Garbage Out.

    When war is considered to be more noble than peace - we have lost everything.
