Republicans: He's a Miserable Failure, But He's Our Miserable Failure...

According to a new CNN poll, George Bush's approval rating got a little better last month, going from 32% in June to 36%. According to poll analyst Keating Holland, the increase reflects Republican sentiment only, as Democrats and independents remain disdainful of the Schmuck in Chief. Hard to understand why, though, given the administration's series of victories in July...

1. The surge report card revealed an Iraqi government woefully unable to meet the simplest conditions laid out for continuing American participation in the "war effort"...

2. An NIE report that demonstrated that Al-Qaeda had grown "significantly stronger" in Pakistan over the past two years (whatever happened to that "no safe haven" declaration, George?)...

4. Woes in the mortgage market threatened to spread to other sectors, and caused real concern that the stock market would soon tank under the weight and cause a global economic crisis...

3. Robert Muellar became only the latest in a long line to out Alberto Gonzales as a lying, clownish political hack with no observable redeeming qualities.

Geez, given all that, it's hard to see why even Essenes wouldn't be jumping on the Bush approval bandwagon...what I want to know is, where were all these low-standard bearers while I was in college? I could have used their type of grade inflation...
