Once More, With Feeling
By Mark Green, former NYC public advocate
I want to end my term at the 60 percent favorables of Ike, Reagan, and Clinton. My poll numbers have always been under 50 percent, except when they jumped to 80 percent after 9/11, to 70 percent after I invaded Iraq, to 60 percent after I found Saddam. Could it be that, beyond the 25 percent of Evangelicals who believe more in the Bible than the Constitution, I can only get over 50 percent by doing something militarily? Doesn’t Iran sound like Iraq? Isn’t it also run by a Hitler-like guy, don’t they foment terrorism, might they go nuclear sooner rather than later?
