Kos Runs a Poll Approved by the Chairman

Charles writes of the Death of the Intelligent Left, and almost by magic, the Kos Kidz deliver.

Here's their latest poll:


Should Bush and Cheney be impeached for crimes against the constitution and this nation?

( ) Damn straight

Yes, there is only one option for voting given. Now you know how Saddam and Mao got those miraculous 99.9% reelection results! The People have spoken!

The "logic" of the Kos post, and of the Left's general obsession with polls, is discussed here: Glenn Greenwald & Argument ad Populum.

Someone please tell them that the only polls that matter happen every two, four, and six years.

Let me patiently explain to you how Daily Kos works. See, there are upwards of 2,000 posts a day on the site. Kos doesn't actually post them all, not even as a sock puppet! See, thousands of users post to the site, and the barrier to entry is... well, typing in a password. It's open-source, and the views are the reflection of nobody but the poster him or herself.

All this to say that 'Kos Runs a Poll' is completely untrue.

And it appears to be a joke, but there's no accounting for taste.
