Going down with the ship

The latest Times/CBS poll shows Bush getting a new all-time low in his approval rating. At the moment he's at a meager 31% making him the third most unpopular president of the half centry, behind only nixon and carter. Sounds bleak and all, but the truly hilarious part is that the two people who ran against him in 2000 and 2004 have to look up to see 31% in the same poll.

Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts, who was Mr. Bush's opponent in 2004, had a lower approval rating than Mr. Bush: 26 percent, down from 40 percent in a poll conducted right after the election.

And just 28 percent said they had a favorable view of Al Gore, one of Mr. Bush's more vocal critics.

I wouldn't exactly call it good news that those two crackpots score even lower, but it does sort of put things into perspective a bit.
