Those damned percentages

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Bush, Congress.

The reason Congress has an approval rating of 15% is that, instead of doing what is right, they continue to cave in to a President with an approval rating of under 30%, despite that fact that he is openly violating the law and the Constitution.

But it was a nice attempt, there, Mallard.

At first I thought that was supposed to be Brian Williams. It does look a lot more like him than Dubya, to say the least.

Of course, Mallard's trying to make it look like it's Harry Reid's popularity instead of Congress as a whole. Matter of fact, individual representatives and senators tend to be very popular with their constituents.

DOWN to 30%?! More like up to 30%.

Who's giant-sized thumby hand is that in the middle anyway? Bush's or Reid's? If it's Reid, why is he pointing at himself? If it's Bush, why is it five feet away from his torso and half the size of his head?

Why why why is this Congress so servile to a failed, massively unpopular president? Elected to get us the hell out of Iraq, they send more money than the chimp-in-chief asked for! Obviously D/R makes little difference. Is Ralph Nader the only voice of honesty left in the race?

The fashion statement is back! Blue sleeve on black jacket!

Bush should have played NBA ball. His left arm is either freakishly long, or it has two elbows.

Making yourself "look better" by standing next to Stephen Hawking? Despicable. You should be congratulating him for being able to hold up that sign unassisted.

It's all still a failing grade.

The president should have a better approval rating though. He only belongs to one party, unlike congress, which has almost equal numbers of both plus a few third parties sprinkled in for extra measure. It means that chances are pretty good that the party someone voting opposes to has had enough of an effect to piss off the voter even though they agree with the other half.

I hate all politicians though anyways. It takes a special kind of person to seek and like power.

If the Democrats in Congress would get off their butts and start impeachment procedings their approval rating would skyrocket overnight. What Tinsley fails to realize is that Bush and Congress have low approval ratings for pretty much the same reason.

Nader's honest? Are we back in the '70s again, when he was a noble crusader? Because the Nader of the past decade is more of a grandstanding prick who got us into this mess in the first place, destroyed his credibility in the process, and refuses to pack it in. Cripes, even Perot called it a day eventually.

Yeah...if I were going to cast a protest vote, it would definitely be for someone less obviously unprincipled than Nader.

Pretty rare for Tinz to actually draw Our Heroic Leader, incidentally. Probably because that just reminds people that your leader, and you by extension, is a fucking asshole.
