Cracker poll is crummy

Here’s my award for Dopey Press Release of the Day: The Ritz cracker company says a national survey shows Americans want as president someone who is “strong, capable and fun.”

Fun? I don’t know about you but I don’t care if my president is fun. I want him or her to take the job pretty darned serious. Voters don’t want their politicians to have a good time.

But if you must know, the poll results showed that former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani is the most fun Republican while Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., is the most fun Democrat.

Now, this is funny: 42 percent of Republicans said they have a lot fun each day, compared to 35 percent of Democrats.
