National Qualitative Centers in Chicago released a poll today ranking presidents. On top of the highly acclaimed-- and much ballyhooed new release from Jib Jab today-- this is not news the hapless Bush wanted. On a day BushCo wants people to be talking about the Iraqi elections, even though the apparent winners are the pro-Iranians Shi'a who plan to establish a theocracy asap, the big news is Jib Jab, Feingold's defeat of Bush's unconstitutional "Patriot" Act, Bush's illegal wiretapping and the accidental release of terrorist chieftain Al Zarqawi. And now a poll that puts Bush in historical perspective.

According to the Reuters report "Bush ranks as the least popular and most bellicose of the last ten U.S. presidents, according to a new survey." 10? That means people like him even less than Nixon! Gross! (Well, of course, they should; as bad as Nixon was, Bush is 10 times worse-- and has much worse people around him. Agnew, for example, was just a lame crook. Cheney is a lame crook and a fascist warmonger. Which do you think is worse?)

"Only nine percent of the 662 people polled picked Bush as their favorite among the last 10 presidents. John F. Kennedy topped that part of the survey, with 26 percent, closely followed by Bill Clinton (25 percent) and Ronald Reagan (23 percent). Bush was also viewed as the most warlike president (43 percent), the worst for the economy (42 percent) and the least effective (33 percent)." You can fool some of the people some of the time...

The art work keeps getting better and better. Sad that so many folks still think Reagan was hot stuff. Just shows you what a phony nice manner can do.
