MSNBC Kicks Off Iraq Study Group Debate With Push Poll

December 6th, 2006 2:35 PM
The ink is barely dry on the Iraq Study Group's report and the mainstream media has already decided that the "bipartisan consensus" is gospel.

Just in case any neanderthals who might question this august group haven't gotten the message, MSNBC has created a stunningly blatant online push poll to get them in line.

Text of the poll [emphasis added]:

Do you believe the Iraq Study Group report will make any difference?

Yes. With its recommendations and proposals, it gives the United States the opportunity for a 'graceful exit.'

No. The Bush administration will ignore most, if not all, of the recommendations.

Maybe. If the Democrat-controlled Congress puts pressure on the administration.

Notice that it is assumed that the report will be helpful; there's no option to disagree with the Iraq Study Group's findings. If the group's report isn't helpful, it's only because the Bush administration won't let it succeed.
