And why not? At this point, it becomes difficult to understand why anyone not heavily medicated or blood-related would still support the Commander in Chief.
- The new numbers? So much for the Broder comeback nonsense. Shrub is back down to a hefty 29.
- How could this possibly be? Why doesn't anyone see the Truman-like brilliance and fortitude of the man? I dunno. Maybe it's becuz the Iraq war has helped, rather than hindered, terror. That might do it.
- Or maybe it's the little things. Like firing prosecutors for political reasons -- well within his rights -- but pretending it's all do to "performance issues." One prosecutor isn't taking the insult lying down. He may take some New Mexico pols with him. (This is, of course, when Dem subpeona power gets hella fun.)
- Or maybe it's that he's managed to lose wars on two fronts at the same time. That's a pretty neat trick.
It's rare that we get to watch a Presidency evaporate right before our eyes (for those willing to look, of course). Shrub, like Nixon before him, seems primed to go out a figure of ridicule and contempt. Which is, of course, exactly what he deserves. The only question now is, does he take the GOP with him?
