Bush's Poll Ratings: Faaallling! Going Dooowwn!
One of the phoniest, sleaziest and most transparent political gimmicks in history has backfired. Thank God. If this Terri Schiavo sideshow had worked, who knows what sleazy cheap-ass three-ring circus Bush and his Bitches would be planning next. Don’t even go there.
Fortunately, most Americans — of all political viewpoints — have seen right through the shameless pandering of Bush, DeLay, Frist and the other Taliban wannabes.
A poll taken this week shows Bush’s overall approval rating at 45%; another poll gives him a 43% rating. Bush’s popularity has slipped even among his most supportive groups: men, self-described conservatives and churchgoers.
Most Americans — including Evangelicals and conservatives — disapprove of Bush and Congress intervening in the Schiavo case.
A famous saying needs to be rephrased: Once in a great while you actually can go wrong underestimating the intelligence of the American public.
Our latest Straight Face Test results: Tom DeLay pretending to get all maudlin and touchy-feely over an invalid he’s never even met — FAIL.
One bright spot in this whole shitstorm: if you’re feeling ill and don’t have medical coverage, try using the Senate’s new psychic healer, Bill “Send-Me-A-Video-And-I’ll-Diagnose-You” Frist.
