Those were the days.


Remember way back (it seems like such a long time ago, doesn't it?) when Commander George W. Chimpster was crowing about his massive, overwhelming election victory:

Bush staked his claim to a broad mandate and announced his top priorities at a post-election news conference, saying his 3.5 million vote victory had won him political capital that he would spend enacting his conservative agenda.

"I earned capital in this campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it," Bush told reporters. "It is my style."

Yeah, you couldn't turn over a rock without finding a conservative crowing about how magnificent was this 51% to 48% devastating smackdown of John Kerry. 51%. You just couldn't escape the incessant bragging, could you?

And now, with Chimpy's numbers going down faster than porn star Mary Carey at a Republican fundraiser, funny how the administration just isn't talking about polls and percentages any more. Fancy that.

BY THE WAY: For those of you with visual fixations.

Exactly! Chimpy McHitlerburton's supporters just don't understand that polls are far more accurate than silly things like "votes" in an "election".

Neocons.
