Just ask Harry Reid.
His approval rating is floating around half of Dick Cheney's (roughly equal to Scooter Libby's). Four times more people strongly approve of President Bush's performance than his (not that the President's numbers are high enough to keep the room warm).
And now Dennis Miller weighs in on Reid. I have not seen commentary like this ever!
But I have heard its mirror image on NPR in the voice of Daniel Shore.
Stay away from politics, unless you think playing red rover in a nuke-u-lar minefield is fun stuff.
