70% of Americans believe Dem criticisms are damaging the Iraq effort

Adolf wanted me to post this one.

A poll run by a Republican and Democrat duo suggests the US public has become very tired of the incessent criticism of the war effort levelled by Democratic Party politicians (and their enablers, the media). Many polled think Democrats are doing it for partisan political reasons.

Expect to see some US lefties attacking the character of the pollsters, while simultaneously using other polls to claim the American public is losing faith in the Iraq effort.

In New Zealand the criticism of the Iraq war comes from "journalists" (activists!), politicians and bloggers who are blatantly anti-American (approaching chronic racism, really) and/or simply spend their time reading leftie blogs and news which are uniformly anti-US Republican Party and negative about Iraq. The fact you come across many dorky young NZers who attack Fox News is representative of this problem: Fox News is only broadcast here for 4-5 hours during the small hours of the morning, yet these young fools give their echo-chamber game away by attacking Fox News shows they could not possibly have seen for themselves.

The Sunday Star Times editorial yesterday was about the execution (pending) of Van Nguyen. It referred to America and said slagged Bush, the Republicans and the fanatical religious right. It then said (quote, how could one forget this): "The Democrats care about human rights".

Cindy Sheehan turned up outside GWB's ranch for a huge protest but only 100 protesters arrived. Then she had a book signing and only three stayed to get a signature. Hilarious. Photos on LGF. But don't worry, Russell Brown will have an explanation.

I can't remember the last time I read a Sunday Star-Times editorial.
Just hope I'm not too tiddly should I bump into the SST editor at the Fairfax Christmas Party.
Heaven knows what I might say.

Reading SST editorials is like having your brain smashed out with a slice of lemon wraped round a large turd brick.


Without the lemon.

I see today Australian Church leader and Labour politicians are calling for a moment's silence when they stretch his neck on Friday!! John Howard is going to the cricket.

The poll doesn't seem to mention the media, AL, or the media "enablers". A bit of editorialising here?

Man, was I stupid last Sunday, I got up, went to the Dairy and instead of buying the Herald On Sunday, unbelievably I bought the SST by mistake ! Rest assured though, I did go back to the Dairy and exchange it. I blame that Monteiths Summer Ale.
