Solacing myself with irony

Via Corrente comes this marvelous story from CNN:
Poll: Nation split on Bush as uniter or divider

On the eve of President Bush's inauguration, a poll shows the nation is split over whether he has united or divided the nation, but a majority believe his inauguration festivities should be toned down because of the war.

During the 2000 campaign, Bush promised to be a "uniter, not a divider."

Forty-nine percent of 1,007 adult Americans said in phone interviews they believe Bush is a "uniter," according to the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll released Wednesday. Another 49 percent called him a "divider," and 2 percent had no opinion.
Isn't that fabulous, really? I figured if it can make me laugh today, I should certainly share it.
