Sound of one hand slapping forehead

Via Bob I see that, like the president himself, most Bush supporters live in a reality of their own creation:

Three out of 4 self-described supporters of President George W. Bush still believe that pre-war Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction (WMD) or active programs to produce them. According to a new survey published Thursday, the same number also believes that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein provided “substantial support” to al Qaeda.

But here is the truly astonishing part: as many or more Bush supporters hold those beliefs today than they did several months ago. In other words, more people believe the claims today — after the publication of a series of well-publicized official government reports that debunked both notions.
