That Sinking Feeling… Eric Alterman
Bush polls numbers are at the lowest of his presidency.  A 47 percent approval rating if you believe the Washington Post/ABC and just 41 percent if you believe CBS News.  In an irrelevant straight-ahead national match-up, Bush has to depend on his little friend Ralph Nader to stay even with Kerry.  Last night demonstrated, as if this were necessary, that a man who cannot admit a single mistake over the course of three-and-a-half years is not going to admit that the entire centerpiece of his presidency is one massive big screw up; something that Washington Post reporters seem to notice but is over the head of the New York Times' Elisabeth "I’m too scared to ask a tough question of Bush” Bumiller.

This seems as good a place as any for our Quote of the day from General Zinni:  "To think that we are going to, quote, stay the course — this course is headed over Niagara Falls,"  The speech, meanwhile, is here.

And hey, Mr. President, whatever happened to that Iraq Stabilization Group Condi was supposed to be running?  Is it anything like the Iraqi Constitution, which, um, you forgot to mention last night? (And while we’re at it, when’s that trip to Mars, again?)

4. Cold shivers...
"Just what will they think they can do if not faced with the checks and balances of a second election. (Remember, Cheney is not going to run and couldn’t care less either.) Here’s hoping we’ll never know…"
