Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know that the real news in the new CBS News poll is Bush’s approval rating, which plunged this month to a pathetic 34 percent.
But it turns out that Bush is even second-rate at being second-rate, having been skunked in the unpopularity sweepstakes by his own Vice President, Dick “shotgun” Cheney who clocked in with a favorability rating of — get this — 18 percent. 18 percent? That’s nothing short of unbelievable. I’m here to tell you, Captain Queeg could have pulled 20 percent from the crew of the Caine. 18 percent? No one’s that unpopular.
