I just voted and #1 is now 12453!

It's high time that American news sites let us start voting on European issues.

When do you think Spiegel will catch on?


As much as I would love to agree that the Speigal poll was a great thing and showed Bush to be very popular, I also realize it is very flawed in that one can vote time and time again and add to the talley. In fact, I voted about 15 times (#1) in the course of re-visiting the poll to see how it was doing.

The fact that it was linked to a very conservative (and popular) German blogger and read by more than a few thousand Americans (who more than likely voted #1 just by the fact they are likely Bush conservatives reading a conservative blog) is in no way indicative of true German poll results on the issue of Bush.

I would argue the 7000 Saturday viewers to this blog all voted several times over in the course of re-visiting this very informal online poll.

Bottom line: This poll means nothing.
