The evidence is clear, and the evidence is here. For me, the money quote was this:
The poll also contains the following startling finding: The public is now much more likely to think that history will judge Bush a below average president (42 percent) than to think history will see him as above average (19 percent). Wow. Remember when Republicans were talking about putting Bush on Mount Rushmore? I don’t think that’s on anymore. (Emphasis added enthusiastically by me.)
Now, we have an obligation to sweep Bush and his thugs out of office. We need to flush the grisly collection of Republican thieves and looters, far-right Republican religious fanatics who want to dictate the most intimate details of everyone's life, and right-wing Republican sociopaths who are killing this country with debt. For the sake of America's future, as many Republicans need to be swept out of office as is politically feasible next year, and a Democrat must be elected President in 2008.
Ladies and gentlemen, it's time to turn the term conservative into a dirty word.
