Whew! What A Week!

Boy oh boy. When it rains it pours for the Bush administration. What a week they've had. Just today, Michael Brown was relieved of his duties as the overseer of the relief effort along the Gulf Coast and Colin Powell slammed the government's response to the disaster. On top of that, two new polls spell bad news for George. The latest AP/IPSOS (PDF) shows that George has fallen through the forties and landed hard at 39% approval. (More on this later.) The other poll, from CBS News, shows that 60 % disapprove of Bush's handling of the war in Iraq and 58% believe that we should begin withdrawing our troops, including 43% of the Republicans polled. And that's just today.

Also this week, we had Michael Brown's padded resume, Bush's firefighter props, and Barbra Bush's callous comments. And that's just off the top of my head. I can only imagine Karl Rove pulling out what's left of his hair as he watches everything he's worked for turn to shit around him.

But let's get back to that AP/IPSOS poll, shall we? It's not a pretty picture.

Too bad this is about nine months too late. But 2006 is starting to look better and better. Bush is truly becoming an albatross for the rest of the party. They've backed him unconditionally for so long, it's going to be fun watching them try to distance themselves over the next fifteen months. I get some perverse pleasure from watching Republicans squirm and eat their own. Does that make me a bad person? I sure hope not.

Have a good weekend!
