Uniter or divider? Um, duh. 

The headline for this story is just priceless: "Poll: Nation split on Bush as uniter or divider."

I'll give you a bit more from this story written by an apparently irony-impaired reporter:
On the eve of President Bush's inauguration, a poll shows the nation is split over whether he has united or divided the nation, but a majority believe his inauguration festivities should be toned down because of the war.

During the 2000 campaign, Bush promised to be a "uniter, not a divider."

Forty-nine percent of 1,007 adult Americans said in phone interviews they believe Bush is a "uniter," according to the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll released Wednesday. Another 49 percent called him a "divider," and 2 percent had no opinion.
Um, guys, this poll demonstrates pretty conclusively that he's a divider, don't you think?

In fact, W, Rove, and the boys specialize in this thing called wedge politics that uses certain issues to unite certain groups behind them. So, in a weird way, Bush is a uniter for some but clearly, overall, he's a divider.


Have you guys been paying any attention at all the last few years?

I guess we know the answer to that question now, don't we?
