G Dub Rollin' Out On 22

So soon-to-be former president Bush's final approval rating came out yesterday, and, you're gonna be surprised.

It turns out that the country has had a change of heart, and, in the final days of his administration, the president has managed to win back the appreciation and respect of--

Ah, fuck it. The dude's goin' out at 22 percent.
(CBS) President Bush will leave office as one of the most unpopular departing presidents in history, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll showing Mr. Bush's final approval rating at 22 percent.

Seventy-three percent say they disapprove of the way Mr. Bush has handled his job as president over the last eight years.

Mr. Bush's final approval rating is the lowest final rating for an outgoing president since Gallup began asking about presidential approval more than 70 years ago.
Mission Accomplished?

Wow. 22 percent. Roughly the same percentage of Texans believe that Barack Obama is a Muslim!

So basically, the core of the president's remaining support comes from ignorant conspiracy theorists who live in Texas.

Heartwarming, isn't it?

Also, I must point out, that 22 percent is also roughly the same portion of dentists who don't think sugarless gum is better for you than sugary gum.

Thankfully, on Tuesday at noon, America's going to start taking much better care of our collective hygiene.
