President Bush's approval ratings plunge deep into the toilet bowl

Political reversals, more bad news from Iraq, and the generally pathetic vibe emanating from the White House have dragged President Bush's standing even further into the toilet. The Republican congress fares no better in the popularity wars. The latest Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that 38 percent of the public approve of the job Bush is doing, down three percentage points in the past month and his worst showing in Post-ABC polling since he assumed office. A third of registered voters approve of the way the Republican-led Congress is doing its job -- their lowest level of support in nine years. They're sucking even worse than POTUS!

The numbers over recent months seem to show that the plummeting GOP approval ratings are not just an anomaly, or as the Post put it "a patch of bad luck." It is a fundamental reaction against the GOP dominated Congress and Administration. And it doesn't look like that will change anytime soon.

'bout time. But be careful, you never know what crazies will do when backed into a corner. Get ready for "Operation use war to raise poll numbers." Or "Operation jumpstart the Armegeddeon and leave the heathens to pick up our clothes."

Speaking of the rapture. Have you ever seen the film, "The Rapture?" It's pretty interesting. It's about my favorite two things : cruising for group sex and saying FU to God. It has one of my all time favorite endings.
