I wanted a bumpersticker that says “United my Ass”, but then thought better of it: the country is still mourning–which is exactly why we’re in this mess. Bush is taking advantage of the collective inattention to work his bad mojo.

I’ve been having to use AOL at work for testing, and I find it to be a sad reminder of what the average, middle america consumer thinks of things.

Yesterday or the day before there was a poll on the AOL Welcome screen that asked where you stood on the war against Iraq.

36% of people were strongly in favor of attacking, 20-something percent were in favor of attacking, third was strongly opposed with 21%, and with less then 20% was opposed to attacking.

I wish I had the numbers, but it’s not in the poll archive.

As for yesterday’s poll. It was asking about approval of how President Bush is handling his job:

37% strongly approve
32% Strongly disapprove
16% disapprove
14% approve
1% no opinion

I’m honestly surprised that the percentage of people opposed to Bush was so high. Even here on a supposed liberal college campus, I’m surrounded by an alarming number of pro-war & Bush students.

But like Alan Jackson said, “We’ll stick a boot in your ass, it’s the American Way.”
*hangs head in disappointment in the average american citizen*
