Cheney Less Popular than Stalin

It's rumored that VP Dick Cheney is less popular than Josef Stalin. Cheney polls at 18% favorable, Stalin at 20%.

I will chalk this up to the fact that most Americans don't know who Josef Stalin is. Those that do probably only remember the picture of him with Churchill and F.D.R. on the deck of a boat in Yalta - not that they know where Yalta is or what they were talking about - and assume he's a decent guy by the company he keeps. Nevermind that he had millions systematically murdered...

Incidently, the translation of 'Josef Stalin' - Joe Steel - would be a great name for a male pornstar.
