Unfair CNN poll question of the day

“Would you go to a Dixie Chicks’ concert?”

The choices for this Internet poll are merely “Yes” and “No.” Where are the options for “Yes, but only if I got free tickets because I’m not much of a country music fan” or “No, but they are talented” or “No, but not because of their political stance” or "No, my great-grandfather just died, how could you even think of asking such an insensitive question at a time like this?"

Anyway, as of about 1:30 p.m. EST, about 55 percent of those who answered voted "No," but probably only because my alternate responses were not included. I abstained because of the inability to vote with a three-paragraph essay attached.
