How Loooow Can He Goooo
The current Newsweek poll has Bush’s approval rating down to 26%. No surprise there since in another Newsweek poll 25% of Americans copped to being Republicans. Those folks will support their man no matter what crimes he commits, how many troops have to die or how goddamn dumb he is.
In that same other poll we also find out just how
ignorant knowledgeable the American public is. 41% still believe that Saddam was involved in the 9/11 attacks and 20% are sure that biological/chemical weapons were found in Iraq! Even Bush doesn’t say that anymore! 45% know that the hijackers came from Iraq, Iran or Syria. 89% don’t know who the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court is and 60% don’t know who the president of Russia is. 21% are up in the air over whether it’s Brezhnev, Yeltsin or Gorbachev. 11% are sure glad that Osama Bin Laden was caught while 24% believe the largest Muslim population on earth is in India. I guess they figure they all look alike.
I can’t put it any better than the Captain did.
“Turn up your iPods America. Get out the skateboards, turn on the ball game, tune in to Rush and pop open another Budweiser. Watch American Idol, download some ring tones and text your buds. We’re almost there; we’re almost stupid enough, angry enough and confused enough for the fascism we’ve wanted for over 75 years to take effect. Sure, the rich get richer and the smart eventually get smarter, but dumbass America never learns.”
