Also, there margin for error is wrong. For 699 respondants the margin should be 4%, not 3. You would need 1066 voters for the 3% margin if my survey stats memory serves me correctly.

It is NOT a matter of "freedom of speech or government suppression." As w/ so much of your BS, it is a straw man argument. And as I said above, why not just show dead and mutilated bodies of our soldiers? It is a matter of very bad taste in an effort to make a stupid political point. It just shouldn't be done, IMO.

Don't believe everything you think

Philosophically and politically FOX is spot-on! They are just providing an added service to their intelligent viewers who all understand the nuances of fair & balanced reportage.

I think it's a great idea. Maybe if you murderous fuckers saw some kid with his head blown off you wouldn't be in such a hurry to play army.

No "F'up" my friend (see above). And the margin of error error is on USA Today/Gallup, not FOX! They would never make an obvious error like that!!

They do it all the time. I see it all the time. It's all subliminal message crap. These guys can't win honestly, so they rig electronic voting machines and play dirty tricks on Fox. Some "Americans".

It is not a strawman argument, it is a VERY SPECIFIC declaration that Bush finds it very easy to make mistakes when others pay the toll with their lives. That is just about as plain and simple as it can get.

Since you did not serve, you cannot understand the reasoning of the point. Vets understand the photograph, Vets have never complained about the poster, Vets know the significance as well as showing a line of tombstones at Arlington or a motorcade of cycles following a single hearse to a cemetery. Vets know the photograph is this wars representation of WW2 photograph of the M1A1, bayonet in the ground, with boots at the bottom and helmet resting on the butt of the rifle. Veterans understand.

The only people who get their panties in a wad on this are those who allow it to be a reminder that Bush’s decisions killed both young Americans and Coalition forces but also 100,000 innocent Iraqi civilians and injured tens of thousands more.

By the way, September was the fourth worst month for US casualties in Iraq since the war started March 19, 2003.

So Faux is deciding that the parties of the two runners should be changed to reflect Faux's view of the world?

J, you're killing me. I can't take that much humor before lunch.

I just went to Foxnews web site and sent the screen cap to everyone on the "Contact us" page and suggested that maybe they either hire an editor to check facts [which would be a first] or not hire the one "child left behind".

I do not expect a response.
