A recent survey by the Pew Research Center shows that the Republican Party is sinking to incredible new lows in popularity.
As you can see by the chart here to the right, the GOP is currently ranking somewhere between the ebola virus and a wet hot fart on the list of things Americans like. And since President Petulant Pissypants has stamped his feet and insisted he's never ever ever going to change course -- he's the Decider, dummies! Nyah nyah nyah! -- we can expect these trend lines to continue.
By the time Bush leaves office, I expect the Republican Party in NAMBLA territory. (My apologies for the unintended Mark Foley pun.) Seriously, given how much damage Bush is doing to his party's reputation right now, we could see the Republicans move to impeach him before the Democrats ever do.
There's an interesting rundown of what the poll says and what it means over at Crooked Timber. Rather than excerpting some of it here, I think you might as well read the whole damn thing. Have at it.
