Happy Birthday Mr. President

Today is George W. Bush's 60th birthday. The vast majority of Americans might light a candle were they not busy worrying about their child/parent/sibling/friend in an increasingly dangerous and illegal war, wondering how they'll pay for their healthcare, whether they'll be able to live on the decreasing real value of the minimum wage, waiting for the effects of global warming to hit home, any number of debilitating problems on the Gulf Coast, or perhaps a combination of some of the above.

Anyway, should you, like my parents, be disheartened by reports that Bush's popularity is on the wax, never fear. According to PEW, the most well-respected non-partisan polling org I can think of, not only has his favorable never been so low, but his unfavorable has never been so high.

Cheers.
