While the GOP tries to spin themselves inside out, the rest of the country (while sadly knowing fuck-all about science) is figuring out what this crew is truly all about.

Well-liked? Harrumph. Time for FoxNews to start figuring a few things out:

The poll, conducted Friday night and yesterday, found that 55 percent of the public believes the Libby case indicates wider problems "with ethical wrongdoing" in the White House, while 41 percent believes it was an "isolated incident." And by a 3 to 1 ratio, 46 percent to 15 percent, Americans say the level of honesty and ethics in the government has declined rather than risen under Bush...

...Bush's overall job approval rating has fallen to 39 percent, the lowest of his presidency in Post-ABC polls. Barely a third of Americans -- 34 percent -- think Bush is doing a good job ensuring high ethics in government, which is slightly lower than President Bill Clinton's standing on this issue when he left office.

That's gotta hurt!

The survey also found that nearly seven in 10 Americans consider the charges against Libby to be serious. A majority -- 55 percent -- said the decision of Special Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald to bring charges against Libby was based on the facts of the case, while 30 percent said he was motivated by partisan politics.

It's building -- and Bush has no plan, but desperate plans.

...He also plans, I think, on appointing himself a true-blue wingnut to the Bench.

That may make his decrepit base happy, but it isn't going to make those poll ratings go anywhere.
