Despite Consultant worries, Ethics DO matter to Americans.

It appears that the knee-knocking spineless excuses for Congressional Democrats and the consultants the RNC were kind enough to suggest to them are wrong about the American people.

We do know the difference between Right and Wrong. And it's not as Limbaugh would define it.

People are looking for effective, honest, compassionate leaders that put their issues and concerns first - not as begrudging afterthought to appeasing their own ambitions.

They don't have to be either Democrats or Republicans.

Unclaimed Territory - by Glenn Greenwald:

"The Censure Resolution -- which is a great political boon to Republicans, massive self-destruction by Democrats, the greatest political blunder in 100 years, and the life raft that will single-handedly save George Bush's drowning presidency -- is already supported by a plurality of Americans, 46% to 44%. According to the first poll on censure, from the American Research Group:

Do you favor or oppose the United States Senate passing a resolution censuring President George W. Bush for authorizing wiretaps of Americans within the United States without obtaining court orders?

All Adults - 3/15/06

Favor - 46%
Oppose - 44%
Undecided - 10%

Based on 1,100 completed telephone interviews among a random sample of adults nationwide March 13-15, 2006. The theoretical margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points, 95% of the time."

He also cites this Pew Report as being very interesting:

The changing impressions of the president can best be viewed by tracking over time how often words come up in these top-of-the-mind associations. Until now, the most frequently offered word to describe the president was "honest," but this comes up far less often today than in the past. Other positive traits such as "integrity" are also cited less, and virtually no respondent used superlatives such as "excellent" or "great" ­ terms that came up fairly often in previous surveys.

The single word most frequently associated with George W. Bush today is "incompetent,"and close behind are two other increasingly mentioned descriptors: "idiot" and "liar." All three are mentioned far more often today than a year ago.
