Now THAT'S a lede.


Oh, man ... how can you not read the rest of an article that opens with:

President George W. Bush's presidency is a disaster - one that's still unfolding. In a mid-2004 column, I argued that, at that point, Bush had already demonstrated that he possessed the least attractive and most troubling traits among those that political scientist James Dave Barber has cataloged in his study of Presidents' personality types.

Now, in early 2006, Bush has continued to sink lower in his public approval ratings, as the result of a series of events that have sapped the public of confidence in its President, and for which he is directly responsible. This Administration goes through scandals like a compulsive eater does candy bars; the wrapper is barely off one before we've moved on to another.

Go read.

CC, Thanks for the great read. Methinks that a similar column may get to be written about our current (and hopefully soon to be former, PM). Maybe we should start a thread on what campaign promises he actually keeps (I bet it will be a very short list).
