The CNN website has been running an online poll for two days now asking its readers if they found President Bush's Second Inaugural Address inspiring.

Interestingly, since CNN is a nonpareil magnet for conservative Republicans and neocons (and if you believe that I'll sell you a Picasso doodle for $11.00), 70% of the poll's responders have indicated they were uninspired by Bush's clarion call for freedom and liberty for all peoples of the world.

Yet these folks regularly tune in to Jerry Springer, Howard Stern, and Judge Judy.

Maybe the young and the restless just don't get it.
