Let's get out of this goshforsaken heckhole!

Honestly, what in the world could CNN mean by the poll they have up on their homepage right now:

Two years on, is it time to end protests against the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq?

Presumably they mean, "Are you sick of all the protesters downtown who obviously are ignored and thus wasting our time and fucking with our traffic?" But seriously, what kind of bullshit question is this? The protests now are primarily about the ONGOING WAR AND OCCUPATION not the "invasion." I personally have found that the protests are highly unfocused and with suspect leaders, and thus choose not to attend. I also am not full enough of pep to rally my own forces against the forces of darkness. However, to speculate that it might be "time to end" these (maybe Congress can have a special Saturday night session to outlaw them) is just inane.

Fortunately, at the time of this writing, 58% said folks should keep on marchin'. Distressingly, 42% said to stop. Whatevs.

By the way, my coworker went to the Chicago protest at Bughouse Square and said it was just a madhouse of threatening cops and other fascist BS. There really is a war on progressive action in this country. CNN's polls are part of that war.
