How could this happen to the reality-based community

Dear Moonbats of the American Left:

I know that Bush Derangement Syndrome cascades its victims into denial and then eventually acceptance of the disease. This is just too much to ignore. Watch the sales of antidepressants! Bush is nothing but steady; not well liked. But Congress is another story. They folded on "ending" the war "responsibly" rolled over for Bush on FISA and are about as corrupt as their Republican forebears. My dear denizens of idiocy, you gotta hand it to my Bush.

Sincerely

Your faithful scrivener.

While the President's positive ratings have dipped slightly, they remain more than twice as high as the Democratic Congress.

President George W. Bush's overall job approval rating has taken a small dip, dropping to 32% positive, down from 34% who gave him positive job marks in mid-July, a new Reuters/Zogby International telephone poll shows.

The survey also shows that the overall job approval rating for the work of Congress remains far below the President's, as just 15% give the national legislature a collective positive rating, up one point since last month. Changes in both the ratings for the President and Congress are statistically insignificant.

This latest Reuters/Zogby poll included interviews with 1,020 likely voters between August 9-11, 2007. It carries a margin of error of +/- 3.1 percentage points.

Bush has lingered in the low 30s all year. His most recent high was a 42% positive rating just a week before the 2006 midterm elections, when Republicans lost control of both houses of Congress. At that time, the positive approval rating for Congress had languished in the low 20s or high teens, but plummeted in the wake of its handling of controversial issues, including immigration reform and the Iraq war, other Zogby polling showed.
