A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Shoot the headline writer: The front page summary graph over at washingtonpost.com reads: "Contradicting polls, thousands in Bay Area rally against attacking Iraq."

A better word might be "defying" or possibly "in contrast to," but "contradicting" is definitely the wrong word.

In the story itself, there is reference to a poll question that is, well, questionable.


Most Americans -- about 61 percent, according to a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll -- support using force to remove Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, but anti-war activists contend that is true only when people are asked the question in the broadest terms. When voters in the Post-ABC poll were asked whether the United States should launch an attack over the opposition of its allies, for example, support dropped to 46 percent.


If they oppose us, are they really our allies?
