1. here's the article
http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,154394...


And some polls included at the end of the article:
Do you approve of the way George W. Bush is handling his job as President?

Disapprove 57% Approve 36%

THE CONGRESS

Disapprove of the job the U.S. Congress is doing

57% disapprove 31% approve 12% Don't know Say they would vote for a Democrat if the congressional election were held today*

54% vote for a Democrat 39% favor a Republican 7% Other party/ don't know

Think the country would be better off if the Democrats won control of the House

49% agree 38% disagree 13% Don't know

THE FOLEY CASE 78% of poll respondents were aware of the scandal involving former G.O.P. Congressman Mark Foley. Their views:

Do you think Republican leaders in Congress handled the Foley situation properly, or do you think they tried to cover it up?

Handled properly 16% Covered it up 64%

Did the disclosure about Foley's sexually explicit instant messages to teenage congressional pages and the handling of this situation by the House Republican leadership make you less likely to vote for the Republican candidate in your district, more likely, or did it really have no effect on how you will vote?

Less likely 25% More likely 4% No effect 68%

Do you think Republican House Speaker Dennis Hastert should resign as Speaker because of his handling of the Foley case?

Yes 39% No 38% Don't know 23%

2. Then again this has been the face of the Republican party for the past 10
years. I'm surprised they haven't had this as their logo for this election cycle.

3. Where's David Brooks shoveling up the dung?
Every parade has the guy with the can on wheels who follows behind the elephants.

6. Good timing to rile up the Republican base...
... in order to prevent a cataclysmic loss in November.
