As some of you may recall, I’ve had a minor obsession with George Bush’s approval ratings over the last three years. In 2005, I savagely mocked him for reaching 37%, which everyone agreed was a remarkably low number. Since then, as I predicted, he’s continued to plunge steadily. Earlier this year he hit 21%, which, if I recall correctly, put him in a tie with Truman for the title of least popular President ever (at least since they started taking polls.)
Now, however, he has reached 19 percent:
Congratulations, Mr. Bush. Your place in history is secured.
