I hate to be the one to have to offer all this perspective because the impression is that I am missing the boat about how serious this is, and nothing could be further from the truth.  I just long time a student of media.  I cringe daily at how they specifically attempt to influence the nation. This Charlie Sheen-Sarah Palin poll, for crying out loud! If there was ever anything to discredit the real purpose of a poll, does anybody ever believed Charlie Sheen's gonna run for president? No.  So what's the purpose of the poll?  The purpose of the poll is to tell Palin she's got no chance and to stay out of it.

and....... why would they do that?  unless they actually feared she might win?
