1 in 10 Americans Say Bush Administration is NOT Crooks/Corrupt

Less Americans believe that the Bush Administration is not crooks/corrupt than believe in astrology (31%) or believe in ghosts (51%).

From CNN:

Only one in 10 Americans said they believe Bush administration officials did nothing illegal or unethical in connection with the leaking of a CIA operative's identity, according to a national poll released Tuesday.

Thirty-nine percent said some administration officials acted illegally in the matter, in which the identity of Valerie Plame, a CIA operative, was revealed.

The same percentage of respondents in the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll said administration officials acted unethically, but did nothing illegal.

Blimey, those are some startling stats!

Oh, I'm sorry, I published before I was supposed to...

This might not at all be relevant to the point you're making - but isn't it quite funny that nobody seems to believe that they will go to hell? Almost ALL Christians believe that they'll end up in Heaven (fair enough) where they'll oddly enough be joined by ca 30% of non-Christians!

The person who said Hell Is Other People must have been mistaken. There are no people at all in Hell.

Or if there are any people there, they are very surprised.

Apologies for this rambling post. I like the blog and if I were the sort of person who can say "keep up the good work" without feeling ashamed, I would.

Haven't you ever seen "South Park?" The only people who wind up in Heaven are the Mormons.

Swedish Girl,

Thanks for the kind words despite any embarrassment.

If I believed in Hell, I'm sure I'd be headed for it. That said, I do believe that the Bush Administration is Hell on Earth for everyone.
