this is not right

If you look at the crosstabs, 67% of women answered the question correctly, and all of the difference between the women and the men landed in "unsure". I have no idea what was going on in those phone polls, but this thing isn't a useful exercise in anything at all.

I _hate_ when Olbermann reports on stuff like this unquestioningly. Last time it was that Oklahoma high school thing (altho that one _stank_ -- Marist at least looks like they did the work and have reasonably competent staff).
