More good news

USA TODAY's Susan Page reports that President Bush is making some headway in arguing that the increase in U.S. troops in Iraq is showing military progress.

In the latest USA TODAY/Gallup Poll, taken Friday through Sunday, the proportion of those who said the additional troops are "making the situation better" rose to 31% from 22% a month ago. Those who said it was "not making much difference" dropped to 41% from 51%.

Given how difficult it is to move public opinion in an environment in which the media organs which supply the majority of people with their information are nothing more than propagandists - against their government's position this new polling data is huge.

It has to be causing sleepless nights for the CLAM establishment*.

Were it not for the blogosphere and talk radio this would not be happening.
