A View From The Handbasket

Did I just say a little while ago that a sub-30 Bush approval rating would be astonishing?

Well, I guess I'm astonished.

Not that it's really surprising, given that he's hit the low 30s consistently over the last several weeks. But until very recently he was still seen as a "popular wartime president." After the election, even though he won by a measly percent or two, the press was all abuzz with talk of a "mandate" and "political capital" and "moral values" and a permanent rule by Republicans forever and ever. He was a colossus astride a red-state tidal wave rejection of reality-based thinking.

Now he's stinking up the joint like Nixon, and the only thing standing in the way of a Democratic-controlled Congress is the Democrats.

We'll see what happens if Rove gets indicted...
