half of Americans are clueless, poll finds

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

This Salon article talks about a recent Harris poll showing that half of Americans still believe (after all the reports and investigations demonstrating the exact opposite) that Iraq had WMDs in 2003 when we invaded. Media critic Michael Massing says, "I'm flabbergasted...[t]his finding just has to cause despair among those of us who hope for an informed public able to draw reasonable conclusions based on evidence."

This reminds me, sadly, of the "Separate Realities" report (550KB PDF) from October 2004, where the GOP was also on the wrong side of the facts. Republicans (and their Democratic enablers) keep trying to justify their rush to war, regardless of how many facts show that they were wrong.

Simply pathetic.

Tom Tomorrow parodies this viewpoint in his two latest cartoons, "The Rightwingoverse" and "You Were Wrong about Everything."
