John Cleese reporting...

So I have complained a lot that the headlines lately make it difficult to tell the difference between The Onion and the WaPo, but now I must say it appears that Monty Python has taken over reporting.

Thanks to Jo Miller for pointing out this gem:
While a slight majority [of Americans polled] believes the invasion of Iraq war contributed to the long-term security of the United States, 70 percent of Americans think these gains have come at an "unacceptable" cost in military casualties.

Nevertheless, the public is still sending conflicting signals.

. . .

58% believe Iraq is not ready for elections. Even so, 60% want those elections to go forward as scheduled. But 54% do not expect honest results.
If this were a GRE logic question I never would have made it to graduate school.
