Pollsters hate our freedom

These latest poll numbers for U.S. President George W. Bush (35 percent approval in a CBS/AP survey released on Wednesday) appear to be the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel this chief executive has sent us careening down in a drunk with power stupor. This guy's numbers are dropping faster than the prom queen's dress after the big dance…he’s now actually encroaching on Nixon’s Watergate-era figure of 27 percent. Let's review:

Valerie Plame is outed as a CIA agent by top level officials in the Bush administration; with the investigation into where this trail leads still ongoing, but already including an indictment for Vice President Dick Cheney’s top advisor “Scooter” Libby…wait…Scooter? You have to love these rich white boy network nicknames, they’re just this close to being homoerotic. Scooter is like what a gay Hell’s Angel would call his bitch…anyway, Plame is exposed after her husband writes an op-ed piece denouncing some of the farcical WMD claims that served as justification for us to invade a sovereign fucking nation that had done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to us.

Ah, Iraq in the autumn…we’re at more than 2,030 deaths since operation ‘Kill the brown people’ began and we’re still no closer to “Giving them their freedom” as Bush likes to say or getting the hell out of there. And what’s more, the Iraqis now hate us. Can you really blame ‘em? More than 2,000 Americans are dead, but how many tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis have we wiped out with the precision of SHOCK & AWE? It’s not a video game as CNN led us to believe in the first Gulf War, and killing innocent women and children is shocking alright.

Maybe those that want to drop buildings on us do it just because they “hate our freedom” as George would have you believe. It couldn’t have anything to do with our government’s policies, right? Nah. Hell, I hate our freedom sometimes…how many more seasons of Survivor are we going to heap on an unsuspecting planet?

Since George has apparently not yet been fellated by an intern, and the Empire…oops, I mean the Republicans…still control the congress, it’s looking more and more like we’ll have to try to continue to keep this Texas twit from completely wrecking the place for at least the next 12 months before the democrats can give him the send off he so justly deserves.

Watching CNN International the other night, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry at a new CNN/USA Today poll that shows 65 percent of Americans would right now vote for a democratic challenger (ANY democrat) for president. Great…but, uhm…here’s a bit of breaking news for those of you in the red states…we’re not having another presidential election for 3 years. Remember last year when we had primaries, and debates, and Bush smeared a Vietnam War hero even though he did everything he could to avoid serving his country? Yeah, it coming back to you now? Remember how it all came down to one state and a relative handful of voters again? Uh huh, see that was your chance. THAT was the election.

i wouldn't like me if i met me.
