Cheney, slightly less popular than child abuse

News & Politics

Cheney's approval rating of 19% is, according to Bob Harris, "two points less popular than cheating on your spouse and seven points behind corporal punishment in schools..."

Note to Cheney: If you don't strenuously push for torture and then use the faulty intelligence gained by said torture to fool the American people into sending their children and spouses to die in a war, your ratings might -- might -- improve.

Harris gleefully continues:

"that's down in what can be politely called lunatic territory. As I've been pointing out for years, twenty or thirty percent of Americans believe any insane thing you can imagine.
Dick Cheney is now 18 points behind the number of people who believe alien beings have secretly contacted the U.S. government.
Scottie McClellan, however, can still spin things: Bush only trails the aliens by two points.
