Oh, geez, Turd Blossom, whadda we do now? Uh, “Bird Flu!” “Hey, lookee here, a new Supreme Court nominee!” Damn, it’s not working! “Attention! Fags want to get married, seduce your kids, and teach them to burn flags!” Crap! “9/11!” “Jesus!” “Terror!”

Oh, well. It’s not like I have to run for re-election or anything…

(CBS News) Most Americans believe someone in the Bush Administration did leak Valerie Plame’s name to reporters – even though Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald indicted no one for doing that. Half of the public describes the matter as something of great importance to the country, and this poll finds low assessments of both the President and the Vice President – with the President’s overall approval rating dropping again to its lowest point ever.
