Not Hating "Greedy" Unions

This is sure to make the NJ punditocracy's heads explode:

Americans Don’t Hate Unions

Paul Krugman makes a great analogy:
Again, I’m having Iraq flashbacks: there was a prolonged period when the inside-the-Beltway view was that only crackpots believed that Bush had misled us into war, even as polling indicated a substantial fraction, and eventually a majority, of the public already believed just that: 
Everybody knows a teacher or a cop or a DPW worker or a social worker or a nurse in a public hospital. They know these people are not leading opulent lives. The entire attack just rings false.
