Breaking News From CBS!

The results of the latest poll showing "More Bad News for Bush" have just arrived at CBS News headquarters via fax from Kinko's in Abilene, TX.

(CBS) Most Americans believe someone in the Bush Administration did
leak Valerie Plame's name to reporters – even though Special Prosecutor Patrick
Fitzgerald indicted no one for doing that. Half of the public describes the
matter as something of great importance to the country, and this poll finds low
assessments of both the President and the Vice President – with the President's
overall approval rating dropping again to its lowest point ever.

In what they call "Assessing the Indictments" they match feelings regarding the recent Libby indictments to: Clinton-Lewinsky, Whitewater, Iran-Contra, and, of course, the Democratic holy grail also known as Watergate. I'm still trying to figure out exactly any of these comparisons really matter, but they sure seem to think it demonstrates something.

In the Rather(pun intended) ironically named section "Assessing Honesty", they return once again to WMD, did Bush lie, was the administration hiding anything, blah, blah, blah. Then they compare Bush's approval ratings to practically every president since Eisenhower. Every president, that is , except Kennedy, Johnson, Ford, Carter, and Bush 41 because they were only comparing second terms. One term Democrat Presidents, such as a Carter or Johnson of course, could not be used since they only served one term right? And, of course, they couldn't stop without making the required comparison to Nixon.

I think, based on the source of the poll, I'm going to withhold final judgment until I personally examine the poll numbers and determine whether or not the fonts are proportionally spaced and the results are totally above board. For now, color me skeptical.
