- Man with hat:
Do you get wafers with it?
Of course you don't have fucking wafers with it, you #*@%! It's a fucking albatross, I mean...
How bad had it gotten for Georgieboy? Check out the latest poll numbers from (of all places) Fox "News."
- President Bush’s job approval rating slipped this week and stands at a new low of 33 percent approve, down from 36 percent two weeks ago and 39 percent in mid-March. A year ago this time, 47 percent approved and two years ago 50 percent approved (April 2004).
Approval among Republicans is below 70 percent for the first time of Bush’s presidency. Two-thirds (66 percent) approve of Bush’s job performance today, down almost 20 percentage points from this time last year when 84 percent of Republicans approved. Among Democrats, 11 percent approve today, while 14 percent approved last April.
"It seems clear that many Republicans, while they may still like and support George Bush, are growing uneasy with what may happen to their candidates — and the policies they support — in the November elections," comments Opinion Dynamics Chairman John Gorman.
33%!? From Fox!? Holy shit! That's got to be like 25% from any real nonpartisan group. And what's worse? Even Rumsfeld is polling higher than Bush! Rumsfeld, for fuck's sake! He's polling at 35%. Honestly, how bad do you have to be doing to be polling BELOW Donald Rumsfeld? Unbelieveable.
And if you don't think people are taking notice of how poorly ol' Georgieboy is doing, you should see the latest political ads here in Illinois. Our incumbent Democratic Governor, Rod Blagojevich (D) has rolled out some new ads concerning his opponent, Republican Judy Baar Topinka. They run in two short segments, usually with another commercial in between. In the first one, Topinka is shown alongside Bush and Rove and the voice over calls her George Bush and Karl Rove's handpicked candidate. It goes on to quote her praising Bush and ends with the phrase "What was she thinking?" The second ad quotes Topinka endorsing Bush's tax cuts for the wealthy and calling a raise in the minimum wage a "give away." It too ends with the phrase "What was she thinking."
Bush has become an albatross around the neck of the Republican party. They're running away from him in droves. Topinka's staff has even publicly stated that they don't want to be seen with Bush. The year of the Democrat marches on!
