Department of Stupidity Department. Those idiotic polls on cnn.com, msnbc.com, and other sites. Sure, they're great if you can compartmentalize what's going on in the world into N-ary choices, but the way they almost always lack a free-response option -- or even "none of the above" -- makes it difficult for me to participate in them.

Would it hurt those sites to try to act like there's some semblence of an intelligent readership whether or not there's some semblence of intelligence in the editorial choices at those sites?
