A new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll gives us an interesting look at the American electorate as George Bush prepares to strut triumphantly away from the White House, his goal of destroying our way of living nearly complete.
- 23 percent of those surveyed say they'll miss him (and not all of them are late-night commedians who've made a good living during the past eight years)
- One third want Bush to remain active in public life (nobody suggested what he'd do, but cutting brush is my thought)
- 20 percent say he inspires confidence (that would roughly equate to the number of end-of-timers in the population)
- 17 percent agree he's a uniter, not a divider (he certainly united New Orleans, Democrats, immigrants, environmentalists, economists, gay people, fiscal conservatives, among others)
- 27 percent approve of the job Bush did (which is a statement on our educational system)
