the ratings game

the new Pew Report evaluating G W Bush is out... the dissection of data is elegant and leaves one wondering only how it is possible that he is still in command. my favorite section is fairly far down the document- titled In a Word...Incompetent. here, the poll asks people to describe the president in one word. the shift since '03 is incredible.

things have gotten so bleak for the Republicans that they now believe their best chance to maintain control in the fall election is by invoking the spectre of impreachment:

The threat of impeachment, Mr. Weyrich suggested, was one of the only factors that could inspire the Republican Party's demoralized base to go to the polls. With "impeachment on the horizon," he wrote, "maybe, just maybe, conservatives would not stay at home after all."

most baffling at the end of the day is the realization that more Americans feel neutral or positively about Simon Cowell than about their commander-in-chief...

Hello, Jacqui: I have been on some other planet for too long. For some reason, after we updated to DSL, I couldn't get your blog to appear...thanks to Pam (the MOM) I have linked up again. I apologize for not knowing about your Grandma's woes. Hope things are better. I'll have to check with Pam on Tuesday.

I hate that our country has to endure these trying times just for my political savvy to be vindicated. I distinctly remember being totally bamboozled the night that we knew "W" really was going to be president. What a cruel joke. I feared so much that what has transpired would occur. Somehow we have to regain lost ground, regain our friends abroad, repair the damage done by destroying Iraq, find the evaporated surplus, attack the deficit, elect some people with brains and hearts, and ....the list goes on. Congrats on your pro-active stance and the great reviews from your evaluation.
Stay strong...Jan (N)
