Bush vs. Stalin
A new poll has President Bush's approval rating at a dismal 19%, which is slightly better than half of Stalin's approval rating among Russians at 37%. Just so we're clear, that's 37% of Russians *today* who think the country was headed in the right direction under Uncle Joe. Whenever these numbers come out I remember that first season episode of West Wing when the staff is freaking out be because their poll numbers are in the *gasp* mid-40s. I don't think there's anything President Bush can do that will save presidency from being considered one of the worst, if not the absolute worst, in our history.
