Hilarious! I loved the 'not a beltway insider' bit.

EDIT: Was going to put this in the republican thread, but decided it's just not to be taken seriously, even though it will probably get some coverage as being serious, I can't force myself to look at it that way.

I have my doubts about how this poll was conducted, but in the interests of further poking dte with sharpened sticks, here are the results from a Daily KOS/Research2000 poll of 2,000 self identified republicans. (They don't say how many of them are institutionalized, but do note some may be residing in small isolated hamlets down in Dixie or in the Blue Ridge Mountains… ) All the bolding and bracketing is mine:
the Huffpo summary:
  • 39 percent of Republicans believe Obama should be impeached, 29 percent are not sure, 32 percent said he should not be voted out of office. [Very generous.]
  • 36 percent of Republicans believe Obama was not born in the United States,
    22 percent are not sure, 42 percent think he is a natural citizen.
  • 31 percent of Republicans believe Obama is a "Racist who hates White people" — the description once adopted by Fox News's Glenn Beck. 33 percent were not sure, and 36 percent said he was not a racist.
  • 63 percent [!]of Republicans think Obama is a socialist[!] 16 percent are not sure, 21 percent say he is not
  • 24 percent of Republicans believe Obama wants "the terrorists to win," 33 percent aren't sure, 43 percent said he did not want the terrorist to win. [Moderately encouraging, that so many think the POTUS is not in league with Osama]
  • 21 percent of Republicans believe ACORN stole the 2008 election [!!]55 percent are not sure, 24 percent said the community organizing group did not steal the election.
  • 23 percent of Republicans believe that their state should secede from the United States, 19 percent aren't sure, 58 percent said no.
  • 53 percent of Republicans said they believe Sarah Palin is more qualified to be president than Obama. [Don't *have* that many exclamation points.]
I hear banjo music…

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
