Bush Hating on the Rise

Well, at the risk of inundating the blog with new topics I’m going to post another one today. Maybe this will make up for being on vacation last week!

USA Today reports the results of a recent poll showing Bush’s popularity at an all-time low of 29 percent and that More than seven in 10 favor removing nearly all U.S. troops from Iraq by April. Especially fun is to click on the graphic of Bush’s approval rating over time.

It looks like the war in Iraq continues to become less and less popular. Imagine that, war being unpopular! Just goes to reinforce the notion that the Democratic win last November had a lot to do with America’s dissatisfaction with the lack of progress in Iraq (if not the whole damn war to begin with).

And on a related note, John McCain, pathetic Bush toady that he has become, appears to be suffering for his support of the idiot in chief. Two of his top aides have resigned and it looks like people are beginning to question the on-going viability of his campaign. I won’t miss him.

Joe Mathlete Breaks Down

I just had to post about the bizarre blog entry for last Friday's Joe Mathlete Explains Marmaduke. This humorous little blog takes the piss out of Marmaduke and is worth visiting for a chuckle or two (which is more than Marmaduke itself delivers). But this particular explanation made me laugh out loud - and for no explainable reason. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did...

The Disgrace of Commuting Scooter's Sentence

I received this e-mail from the DSCC and thought I'd share it here:

President Bush commuted Scooter Libby's prison sentence wiping away two and half years of jail time with the stroke of a pen. President Bush ignored Libby's felony conviction for lying to investigators, ignored the jury's guilty verdict, and ignored the rule of law that governs our nation.

Join me and tell President Bush that you are appalled by his actions. Sign the DSCC's petition today letting President Bush know that his outrageous conduct won't be tolerated by the American people.
