        \_ what does it matter?  he is free to fuck up the world
        until the next guy gets elected.

           how expensive psychiatric therapy is? You guys are cruel.
        \_ link:csua.org/u/d50 (graph with many polls)
           You can compare the AmResGp data with other data.  The recent
           Harris data point backs it up a little bit.
        \_ why does this matter?  Its not like we can chose to not reelect him.
           \_ It shows that, for whatever reason, the American people are
              finally rejecting the Project for a New American Century,
              which gives hope for the future.  -tom
              \_ No, actually, all it shows is that Bush is not popular right
                 now.  The rest is all in your head. -- ilyas
                 \_ His war is also not popular.
                        \_ But at least he's not letting gays get married!
