I have not read the poll data (and you will just have to take me at my word on that). I have not read any of the blogosphere commentary. I have seen only the headline at Memeorandum and the people linking to it. As such, I have only one question.
Will anyone consider that the reason ratings are so low is not a universal rejection of Democratic principles as enacted by the new Majority party, it is because the Democrats are also mad at the Democratic majority for not standing up to Bush? Because I guarantee the drop is from Democrats angry at Democratic cowardice, and not a yearning for a Republican Congress.
Any bets? Because I am betting it is all “RAH RAH BUSH HAS HIGHER RATINGS THAN THE DHIMMOCRATS IN CONGRESS.” I can almost guarantee it. I will leave it to you guys to explore the data and the reactions and get back to me.
I am going to take a nap.

Well, there is a real shock. At least one person does understand it- Glenn Greenwald. It really isn’t rocket science. Hell, Tim is going to do what he can to get Pelosi and Reid fired in 2009.
