28% Approval After All That's Happened?
It blows my mind to think 28 percent of this country still thinks God's Joke From Texas is doing a fine job. Ok, ok, I know it's not entirely scientifically kosher, but that sort of means you go walking down a street - or go to a mall - and more than 1 out of every 4 people you pass is completely insane.
Now, let's say you live on the Upper West Side in Manhattan, where it's a safe bet that there are no more than 3 or 4 Bush supporters on a given block holding, I dunno. about 2500 people, perhaps. Y'know what that means, right? That means that somewhere in this strange country of ours there are entire neighborhoods that still think Bush is great.
The mind boggles.
[SPECIAL NOTE TO THE HUMOR-CHALLENGED: I've posted similar sentiments when Bush was at 50%, 40%, and so on and received perfectly serious comments to the effect of, "well, there's always a base of support so what are you so worked up about?" And I'se like, "WTF? Joke, dude. Joke. Get it? No matter how low he goes, it can't possibly be low enough."
Sigh. I guess on the internet, not only does no one know you're a dog, but no one knows you're being a sarcastic dog.
