Feedback: Polls show less support

It appears Americans are getting smarter all the time in spite of the Bush Administration’s dizzying spin and diversion. Fox news viewership is down 58 percent from October 2004 to April 2005 in the key 25 to 54 demographic.

Apparently viewers are getting tired of the missing teenager in Aruba. It’s time for the mass media to find another attractive white woman who’s been the victim of a heinous crime to flog. The president has his worst approval rating ever and the worst rating for all second term presidents. The National Guard and Army Reserve have raised the maximum age to 39 hoping to fill their ranks.

Digging in the GOP cesspool you’ll find RNC chairman Ken Mehlman giving up spin and resorting to bald-faced lies to continue the attempt to smear Joe Wilson and his wife. President Bush rewards John Roberts for his help insquelching the 2000 Florida vote recount with a Supreme Court nomination.

On the cover-up front, the DOD has refused to cooperate with a federal judge’s order turn over photographs and videotapes that purport to show a child being abused and a woman being raped in Abu Ghraib among other warcrimes. The Administration may have effectively covered up the Valerie Plame leak, unfortunately for them perjury is a crime too. It’s time for citizens to make up their mind; corruption, fear, and war or a representative democracy.
