“Really, It’s Just A Coincidence" ... The Results - The Garlic Week Poll

Well, with the cool embrace of the Iraq Study Group, you could just tell it wasn’t going to be added to President Bush’s Ek-A-Lec-Tic" Reading List.

Then there’s Vice President Cheney, who hasn’t indicated if he will back basic civil rights for the parents of his new grandchild, but nonetheless, is looking forward to that event (boy, to be a fly-on-the-wall in that hospital on the night of the delivery).

So, it didn’t come to any surprise for our Garlic Poll voters that the delay the President has engaged in, as to announcing his new, new, new Iraq strategy, the only logical reason, given the history of this administration, is politics. Step on the Democrats as they take over the Congress, put a dent into Speaker-of-the-House Nancy Pelosi’s 100-hours and otherwise, man the battle stations to take control of the sound bites and messages flowing out of Washington.

Sounds like it has to be coming from the man-with-a-plan, “The Math” genius boy, Karl Rove. We’ll just have to wait and see, after the beating he took in the Midterms, if Rove has his chalk back on the blackboard, of if he’ll be clapping erasers behind the White House.

The Results - Garlic's Weekly Poll December 17 - December 23, 2006

President Bush is delaying his new strategy for Iraq until next month because...

1. He wants to upstage the Democrats when they officially take over the majority in the Congress Tally 26%

2. Dick Cheney, who’s preoccupied with the prospects of having a new grandchild, hasn’t told the President what it is yet Tally 25%

3. Government Printing Office hasn’t finished the phonetically-spelled edition of the Iraq Study Group Report yet for the President to review Tally 24%

4. Hoping people will forget about it so he can keep delaying it until the end of his term and it’s not his problem any longer Tally 14%

5. He’s waiting to see what he gets for Christmas presents first, that maybe he’ll get a solution as a gift Tally 11%

This week’s Poll - When it is all said-and-done this Christmas, who will have ended up with more coal in their stocking?
