According to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, a growing number of Americans say the U.S. Supreme Court has become "too conservative" since President Bush began nominating justices:

"Nearly a third of the public - 31 percent - thinks the court is too far to the right, a noticeable jump since the question was last asked in July 2005. That's when Bush nominated John G. Roberts Jr. to the court and, in the six-month period that followed, the Senate approved Roberts as chief justice and confirmed Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr."

If the 31 percent of poll respondents who think the Supreme Court is too conservative had been asked to cite a specific case to support their position, how many out one hundred do you think could've done so? I say maybe - maybe - five out of one hundred could have. Hell, if you asked the our-Supreme-Court's-too-conservative crowd to name three or more Supreme Court Justices, you'd be lucky to find five out of one hundred who could do that.

As I stated a couple of weeks ago, I have absolutely no use for polls that elicit agree/disagree, yes/no, not enough/enough/too much, etc. responses without asking WHY as well.

Polls? Piss on 'em ... that's what I say!
