Congressman Emanuel Cleaver (D), from April 27, 2008:

…And so the president’s [George W. Bush] poll numbers dropped down to where they are now, twenty seven. Satan is at twenty nine. [laughter, applause] Some of the lowest poll numbers in the history of the republic, since we’ve been keeping poll numbers…

[emphasis added]

From Plunderbund:

28% of Americans Believe the Military Should Have No Civilian Oversight?

by Joseph on June 26, 2010

….Does ANYONE really think we should have unbridled military control? Without civilian oversight?

Did Rasmussen limit their call list to 14 year old boys who just watched Taps for the first time?….

I’m almost surprised that the number was that low.

The Rasmussen poll:

28% Say Civilian Control of Military Bad for U.S.

Friday, June 25, 2010

….a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 44% of U.S. voters think civilian control of the military is good for the country.

Twenty-eight percent (28%) think it’s a bad idea to have civilians with the final say over military leaders. Another 28% are not sure which course is best….

….The survey of 1,000 Likely U.S. Voters was conducted on June 23-24, 2010 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence….

[emphasis added]

That just may be about right, given the number of batshit crazy people in America right now.

What would Lincoln or Truman have done?
