No Cheers For Chimpy

Seeing as how even the soldiers would only clap during Bush's speech when pushed by the White House advance team, it's not surprising that the non-military public were also less than impressed:

And, yes, these polls are unscientific so the numbers have a LARGE margin of error, but even taking that into consideration they still do not bode well for Preznit Chimpy McFlightsuit.

It was nice to see that we've found bin Laden -- well found him in a speech by the Preznit, anyway. He mentioned him by name twice and that's as rare as hen's teeth or a day going by without one of our soldiers being killed in Iraq.
