the 18% vice president

De facto vice president/farm-raised-small-bird-killer-in-chief Dick Cheney's latest poll numbers show him with an 18% popularity rating. Eighteen percent. The Post article points out that makes Darth Cheney less popular than OJ Simpson after his trial. Less popular than Joe Stalin is with Russians. But a little bit more popular than Paris Hilton, so that's all right.

Cheney's puppet I mean putative boss' numbers aren't much better, after another crap week revealed more of their stupidity and cupidity. Bush is in Jimmy Carter territory. Unfortunately, this is after Bush's re-selection (thank you, Diebold and Ohio!) so it doesn't do much good for America unless it helps sweep out some of the more odious elements of the House and Senate in 2006, and prevents another beetle-browed conservative theocrat oilman type from succeeding Bush in 2008.
