Hey Nineteen! Junior's monumental accomplishment.

Congratulations, Junior!

Well, well, well...

Junior has finally managed to stand on his own two feet and achieve something of his very own: a 19% approval rating, according to the American Research Group. He now has the worst approval rating of any president in the history of any poll measuring such.

Bush has surpassed the lows of Clinton (36%), Bush the Elder (29%), Reagan (35%), Carter (28%), Ford (37%), Nixon (23%) and LBJ (35%). He has even smashed through the concrete floor set by Truman (22%).

Let's face it, folks. You don't get a 19% approval rating merely by being incompetent. You've got to augment incompetence with malevolence and cruelty and arrogance, and you've got to be so obvious about it that even a child can see it.

This is a stellar achievement. Of course, anyone to the political left of Genghis Khan has long known that Junior is worthless. But he's into new territory now. Even "movement conservatives" are turning away from him.

Well, Junior, here's one for you from one of my favorite bands, Steely Dan.

The Cuervo Gold, the fine Colombian, make tonight a wonderful thing...
