Response to Original message
5. A recent poll
found that 42% of the group surveyed STILL feel there is a connection between 9/11 and Saddam Hussein. I can't remember where I heard it but it has been over the last few days. I wonder if anyone else has heard this. I remember a quote from Alan Ginsberg from the 60's about whoever controls the media controls the people. We've been through almost 2 years of message linking by the Bush people, lockstep reporting by the major media and the Karlrovian response. It's really scary in a very Orwellian sort of way how this idea has persisted in almost half the country despite no evidence to back it up. I think Kerry is right to challenge Bush on this linking-but of course they'll deny that they actually meant to link the two. PERHAPS, challenging the link will somehow rattle some vestige of curiosity in the brains of some of those 42%-but I wouldn't bet on it.
