    Only if you're scoring some points somewhere. A yes or a no without understanding why means very little outside of a vote on something. That's why yes and no questions are usually considered poor questions.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Since when have "yes" or "no" questions been poor questions? ROTFLOL... That's the first I've heard of this. "Yes/No" only questions are excellent, as they cut through the crap. It's why lawyers love to use them.

    More politicians should be given ONLY "yes/no" questions. I don't need to hear their qualifications on a lot of issues. I want to know where the mother****er stands. Spare me the BS... tell me... yes or no.

    Did you have sex with that woman Billy Bob?
    Senator Obama, do you really want us to believe you never heard the poisonous slurry spewing from between Rev. Wright's gums?
    Senator Obama, do you consider many on the right to be bitter clingers? 10 to 30%? 30 to 50%? 50 to 70%? More than 70%?
    Hillary, did you bone up on those 900 raw FBI files?
    Sandy Burgler, did you steal, by shoving documents down your pants and destroy those documents from the National Archives to cover for the incompetence of The Clintons?
    Algore, did you invent the Internet?
    Senator Reid, is the war lost?
    Senator Turbin, are our troops like Nazi's?
    Senator Kerry, did these atrocities you testified about happened in Vietnam? Did you report them to your superiors?

    I think the next presidential election should be run with 90% "yes/no" answers.

    Too many politicians and (especially) libs (of all stripes) remind me of this character.

    Such questions offer nothing to understanding. Politiicans aside, if you're in a discussion, a yes or no question doesn't explain anything. Offers nothing to the discourse.

I think it's a good thing, even a great thing to have the electorate engaged... and passionate. But of course there is a line. Rush didn't cross it. Palin hasn't crossed it, nor has FOXNEWS. The Dems have crossed it in the most disgusting manner twice in less than a decade.

    Talk radio was a significant force in the D's demise, and now FOXNEWS and the internet don't let them get away with their spin like they once could when they owned the media. It is voices like Limbaugh the left wants to shut down, and this shooting is another illustration of how low they are willing to go to achieve that goal.

    I thought voting to send our troops to Gulf War 2 and then turning their backs on them... treasonous back stabbing was as low as one could go. Sending troops to war for political expediency... there could be nothing lower. Could there? I was wrong. Their behavior after this shooting is at least on par with that most digusting moment in their history.

    And for what reason do we see the D's twice sink to this depth... swimming in the feces... with full assistance from their journOlists?

    Power.

    It's sad, sick, and demented, but it's the story of the modern Democrat party.

    It lets people know where you stand. It may not explain why, but that gum flapping may not matter.

    Are you for higher taxes on the wealthy?
    Is 250,000 a year wealthy?
    Are you for the death penalty?
    Do you believe in spreading the wealth around?
    Are you for gay marriage?
    Do you believe Roe v Wade was a gross overreach by the SCOTUS?
    Was Algore cheated in 2000?
    Did the Florida Supreme Court vastly overreach?
    Did Bush lie about getting us into Iraq?
    Did the Dems in Congress vote to send troops to war for political expediency?
    Did the Dems turn their backs on the troops for political expediency?

    You see, in 5 minutes I could learn more about you with Y/N questions than all the gum flapping and rationalizing of positions. Therefore they provide great insight into understanding.

    I think it'd be a great test to run on Moderates and Progressives... ROTFLOL. Of course such Libs aren't prone to answering honestly... because they lie about who they are right out of the gate...LOL.

    yes's and no's are "generally considered poor questions"

    LOL!

    says the guy who demands links (after dozens provided from the ny times, boston globe, wapo, ap, reuters, bloomberg, cnn, nbc...)

    and prefers wik to the cbc for purposes of "comparison and overview"

    60 second kneejerkers demonstrate appalling lack of self respect

    and they're HILARIOUS!

    Seems that is what Joe is driving at.

    Not at all. In fact, what you describe is often the reason to ask a yest or no question. You want to skip any explination or any understanding, because with the reason for the answer being open to your interpretation, you can paint it as you please.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
