I Knew It!

Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord

From the too little, too late pile... I was always skeptical of the polls showing a large majority of Americans supported the dehydration of Terri Schiavo, dismissing it as the uninformed responding to an ill-formed question. Zogby apparaently put in the field a more neutral question and found quite a different result:

"If a disabled person is not terminally ill, not in a coma, and not being kept alive on life support, and they have no written directive, should or should they not be denied food and water," the poll asked.

A whopping 79 percent said the patient should not have food and water taken away while just 9 percent said yes.

She also has a link to Pat Caddell's condemnation on Fox News of the widespread CBS poll.
