Just a short post to note how Republicans try to bamboozle the public with alternative reality; or reality, which when closely examined means nothing.

In my inbox this morning, I received an e-mail from my right-wing cyberspace buddy, rubbing my nose in the latest USA Today/CNN/Gallup poll.

According to him, the poll shows a “whopping 13% (sic) of Americans think Katrina mess was Bush’s fault.” Tellingly, three times the number of folks blame the mayor and the governor.

My friend further comments how the majority of Americans feel it was “an act of God, a natural disaster, and nobody’s fault.”

His last comment is a non sequitur, and further reveals the fallacy of his initial inference.

Of course most people believe Katrina was no one’s fault; for God's sake, it was a natural disaster; but this fact doesn’t relieve Bush from responsibility as to how he responded; and apparently the American people are not too happy with the latter.

The latest CBS poll is posted below. Draw your own conclusions.

Now Approve 38%
