Last weeks poll was "Who Would You Rather Have A Beer With?"
The results of the poll are in:
|George W. Bush ||35.9%|
|Bill Clinton ||34.2%|
|Tony Blair ||10.3%|
|Osama Bin Laden ||7.9%|
|Al Sharpton ||4.1%|
|Saddam Hussein ||3.3%|
|John Kerry ||2.7%|
|Kofi Annan ||1.6%|
Looking at this poll shows some surprising things. For one the liberals are dealt another blow with George Bush outdoing Bill Clinton by 1.7%.
I'd like to think the 7.9% that picked Osama Bin Laden and the 3.3% that picked Saddam Hussein did so because they would try to do physical harm to them while they're tossing back their glass, but I could be wrong.
The most shocking of the numbers is that only 2.7% picked John Kerry, less than either Osama or Saddam. The least shocking is that the asshat Kofi Annan only received 1.6%, but Kerry should be ashamed he only received 1.1% more than Annan.
If you have any comments on the results make them below.
Also see the original entry for this poll where some people have already commented and made suggestions.
Be sure to vote in this weeks poll on the navbar to your left.
Considering your audience is more Republican than Democrat, I am actually amazed that Clinton had as many votes as he did. You may see it as a blow to liberals, but I actually think it is the other way around. :)
Now, if the same results were on a blog like mine, with a majority Democrat audience ... then I could see your point.

Actually you'd be surprised at the diversity of my readers.
Like David, at ISOU, I'm fairly moderate and have readers from both sides of the aisle.
I just couldn't believe the really poor Kerry showing. I figured he's get more than that.

Actually, it doesn't surprise me that most people would not want to drink a beer with John Kerry, considering the options of Bush and Clinton. Bush used to be a party guy and Clinton is just too cool. I mean, really ... this is the guy that played hanky panky in the Oval with an intern and a cigar. ;)
Kerry is a more dignified kind of guy. I don't think he would be that fun to drink with.

When I voted about a week ago, Clinton was marginally in the lead. Roque got it right about Kerry. Given the alternatives of Bush/Clinton, Kerry pales into insignificance (as decent a human being as he may be). What would you talk about with him? The evolution of the taste of ketchup thought he 20th century?
Digger: the key issue is, how many people voted?
Did the voting conform to International Standards with the observers? Michael Moore told me he voted 19 times.
