I don't know about things where you are, but it's funny how the radio news, for example, is making the Iraqi vote seem like just another news story.

I'm reminded of the earlier vote. In the early morning, CNN had constant coverage, showing empty polling places. By evening, they were on to some other story, once there was actual NEWS to cover in Iraq. Of course they covered the election, but it was amusing how they dropped out of wall to wall coverage once the voters started showing up in large numbers. Guess that wasn't news...

I understand the sight of purple fingers makes MSM reporters ill, so they were trying to avoid the "democracy" buy. ;-)

I haven't seen this poll in the MSM either. Interesting. I personally don't rely on polls but I don't think the results of this one were what they were expecting.

They were probably hoping for some terrific shots of exploding polling places.
