30% of All Americans Believe in Ghosts

The Extremely Flawed Polls (Not Poles)--Right, and more people than that believed there were WMDs in Iraq. Have we found evidence of either yet? Prove it. No? Then shut-up, we don't care. Sex and the City was also popular with millions of moral imbeciles in these here United States, yet clearly sucked as an excuse for a hockey-puck. Sarah Jessica Parker has a horse-face. Life is simple, and the Emperor wears no clothes. Many of you actually still believe in the Virgin birth, even though several religions and sects in the Middle East had the same contention in their sacred stories centuries earlier. Others still cling like dingle-berries to the notion that Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny are real.

Then there are those who believe that American-style capitalism has always worked well, and will persist into-perpetuity (because it works for those who hold this belief). All of these contentions require a suspension of the inviolable laws of physics and a nose-dive into the abyss of destructive irrationality. Do you really think that that's the worst of it? Really? I'm not the Dalai Lama, but I hear tell that there's worse. Here's the worst for this peculiar historical moment: there are those of you who still believe the BIG DOOSIE: that the president and GOP incumbents in Congress can win the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and that the 'war on terrorism' is actually real. But then, the same folks believe that their spouse, children, and their entire community doesn't hate them for being reactionary assholes. I'm mean, I know (Viva la Muerte.).
