Normally we reserve this for record low approval ratings, but I think we'll make an exception for most hated preznit evah.

WASHINGTON — President Bush has set a record he'd presumably prefer to avoid: the highest disapproval rating of any president in the 70-year history of the Gallup Poll.

In a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll taken Friday through Sunday, 28% of Americans approve of the job Bush is doing; 69% disapprove. The approval rating matches the low point of his presidency, and the disapproval sets a new high for any president since Franklin Roosevelt.

The previous record of 67% was reached by Harry Truman in January 1952, when the United States was enmeshed in the Korean War.

That's poorly written, suggesting FDR was unpopular. It's just about the modern polling era.

This administration really has to get out of office. You have no idea about the creepy places on the internets I have to go to satisfy Holden's insatiable lust for ponies.
