Saving the World One Joke at a Time.
Bush's approval rating is down to 13%, which I believe is the lowest ever. So pretty much the lamest of ducks.Obma's popularity is, on the other hand, a bit scary. It's like Americans are about to saint him. In Hawaii, they went nuts that he took his Christmas there. (Tourism is suffering due to the downturn, so his support for Hawaii by holidaying there went over VERY well.) But I was amazed that every second Tshirt for sale was an Obma one. "Obma Surfs" seemed to be a very popular Tee. And half the titles in the biography section of Borders seemed to be about him. Very striking. I haven't seen anything like this since the Kennedy years -- people forget, but electing a catholic in his generation was as electrifying as electing a black this time. (So I guess we can expect a gay woman about 2020.)
