Throw the bums out (and bring in some new bums)

This is guest blogger Wile E. Coyote.

Morning headlines could be reading: President's Approval Rating Seven Points Higher Than Congress's."

In other words, Congress's approval rating is 18%.

If you look at the data in the article, Congressional approval has been on a slide for five years. If we threw the bums out in 2006, why did we get another bunch of bums? And what will happen in 2008?

You make the call.

In this last election people voted in Democrats to bring this war to an end, stop the unconstitutional warrentless wiretapping, and basically set this country back on track. The majority of the public wants Dick Cheney and George W. Bush impeached ; it doesn't look like that's going to happen.

Sometimes the person who draws the greatest wrath is not the offender, but the one who lets you down.

Both parties feed at the same pig trough on K Street. No surprise that in a two party system, we elect the least worst candidate and find, once in office, they act about the same.

Two thirds of Americans have decided it isn't worth voting any more.

With the current, lengthy presidential election process, we are seeing over time, the front runners pander to every group of ideologues and ultimately standing for nothing.

Coyote here.

How do you see Giuliani pandering (as opposed to posturing)?

I'm not following Rudy's campaigning. Although postering is really a good description of his behavior. And one might add postering phony as New Yorkers were happy to get rid of him.

He never was the hero type, having talked a judge into writing a letter that his clerkship was an essential public service, so he could dodge the draft for Vietnam.

David Letterman had a great line in a recent "Top Ten List". It had to do with the recent engagement of one of President Bush's daughters - the Top Ten Good things about marrying into the Bush family (or something like that).

"Even if half of the family hates you, you have a higher approval rating than the President."
