The Wednesday ‘BushWhack’ing

Hump day… mid-week… halfway to Friday…

  • A new Reuters/Zogby poll puts “President” Bush’s approval rating at a record low 24%... (ya know; sometimes the snark just writes itself)
  • Speaking of polling, a new CNN poll by the Opinion Research Corporation shows that one-time gop presidential wunderkind Fred Thompson’s star is falling fast. Back in September when he entered the race his support was 27%, neck and neck with Rudy Giuliani. Now it’s at 19% and John McCain is nipping at his heels…
  • Twenty. Four. Percent.
  • The Nevada Democratic Party announced that it will hold its caucus on January 19th and will not petition the national party to move it up a week.
  • National Institutes of Health Director Elias Zerhouni threw out another chastising of “President” Bush’s stem cell policy. Said Zerhouni; “ All avenues of research need to be pursued,” to which White House spokesman Tony Fratto responded by saying that Bush has a “broader view” than scientists, which takes into account “moral and religious views.” (What a tool…)
  • And have we mentioned? That republican presidential candidates are beating the war-drums for Iran? (Sigh… what more needs to be said other than this. If another republican gets into the White House in 2008, you can take it to the bank that the US will get involved in another war… if Bush and his war-mongering cronies haven’t done it already…)
