Another post in DAYS' continuing effort to inform the Preznit about his most recent polling numbers in a simple, direct and easy way so that he can wrap his tiny mind around the depths of his unpopularity:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic And I got mad hits like Rod Carew.

In July of 1974, Mr. Carew was busy tearing up the majors on his way to another batting title. Also that month, Richard Nixon's approval rating hit 29%. On August 8, 1974, Nixon would resign. I am so excited for this summer.

Oh, and this description, of 'Lot 29', Googled up in my numbers research today:

In stereotypes loved by comedians, `Lot 29' was to auctions what `PC 49' was to policemen. `Lot 29' was likely to be a hideously ugly vase, a chair on the point of falling to pieces, a wireless that only crackled, or some other object that no one in their right mind would want to buy.
Seems like an unbelievably appropriate metaphor for this administration, no? Heckuva job Dubya.
