Why does America take this bunch of loons seriously?
“61% say Bush knew about 9-11!”

Update: Ace has this brilliant take on the media blackout on the “60% party”:
Long story short:
The media considers it crazy to believe that Saddam Hussein, President of Iraq, had something to do with 9/11, and fights this insanity with every tool at its disposal, including outright deception.
On the other hand, the media does not apparently consider it particularly hard to believe that George Bush, President of the United States, had something to do with 9/11. If they did consider such a notion beyond the pale, one would imagine they’d publicize (and implicity mock) those crazed liberals believing that our own President aided and abetted Osama bin Ladin.
But of course they don’t. Because it’s simply not possible for a reasonble person to believe a sworn enemy of the US, known to have at least some ties with Al Qaeda, could have had a hand in the attacks, but a reasonable person could, according to the MSM, believe that a US President with no ties to Al Qaeda helped facillitate and perhaps even carry out the attacks.
Ace also links to a previous National Review article by Andrew McCarthy on the Iraqi-Al-Qaeda connections. This is another grand example of mainstream media refusing to acknowlege truth because it goes against their liberal grain.
