How Low Can We Go?

The latest Harris / Wall Street Journal opinion poll shows GWB's approval rating has dropped to 29%, putting Dubya within one or two warrantless wiretaps of breaking Richard Nixon's Watergate-era approval rating of 25%, the worst ever recorded for a U.S. president, according to some pollsters. (Harry Truman once hit 23% in a Gallup poll.)

So many of us have been saying for so long that George W. Bush is the worst president in American history, it will feel anti-climatic when a national opinion poll bears finally us out, as will surely happen once the shitstorm from yesterday's USA Today reportage over the illegal gathering of Americans' phone records has settled.

But when GWB does bottom out with the worst opinion poll results in American history, I'm going to try to resist any impulse to celebrate. Things are worse than they've ever been and they are getting worserer.

UPDATE: It's worth mentioning that among Democrats, Bush II's approval rating is 8%. My question: Who ARE these people?
