    Yeah, but a "Criticize Bush!" thread would be way too easy at this point.

    *snarks* Isn't he sitting at a 29% approval rating? Something like the lowest approval rating of all time?

    Rasmussen Reports
    For complete truth in advertising, it is the Rasmussen Report (look at the ads that are on the site for an indication of bias), and if you include "fair" the number jumps up to 45%. 51% say "poor." They've done little to resists the bush government, so it is a fairly well deserved low rating.

    Bush ratings of people who "disapprove" are in the 60s.

    Hey, it's honest. It's way better than suggesting that Obama is some type of Santa Claus/Messiah cross-breed, or that McCain will cast a steely glare across the Atlantic and every terrorist on Earth with immediately lay down their arms and become Methodists.

    Oh, here we go. Want some bashing of fellow "libertarians?" Here is an interview in Reason with Libertarian Party VP candidate Wayne Allyn Root. Mr. Root, like Bob Barr, was a Republican until a few years ago. He remains a complete blowhard. Seriously, this guy makes himself sound like a Human Facepalm Smiley.

    Haha, that interview's pretty bad. I didn't even know that guy was the LP VP nominee. That's how closely I follow the LP.

    Yeah, the LP ticket is two jerks who were Republicans through Bush's first term in office. They just never get their shit together in that party. I read that interview and felt like the young Alvy Singer in Annie Hall, when he was being regaled by Joey Nichols: *turn away, sigh* "What an asshole."
