tucker-blogsmear.jpg Question: When does an overwhelming majority equate to just a few isolated internet geeks? Answer: When Tucker Carlson wants to further the media narrative that Americans really don't support the Democrats in opposing Bush.

The latest ABC/WaPo poll shows that of the 63% of Americans that oppose sending in more troops, 72% of them want the Democrats to block Bush's escalation by withholding funding. But according to Tucker and guest Jacob Weisberg of Slate Magazine, it's just the netroots who are pushing and really, they should be ignored because Iraq is so 2006.

It's ironic that a writer for an online magazine reponsible for articles such as "The conservative era is over" is so intent on painting the election not as a statement of no confidence for Bush's occupation of Iraq and a desire to withdraw troops but one of economic populism, using Jim Webb as an example. Even their rationalizations make no sense.
