Gallows Humor

Here ya go:

US President George W. Bush on Monday warned lawmakers wary of his 700-billion-dollar debt bailout scheme that "failure to act would have broad consequences" for the battered US economy

Bush's overall approval rating fell to 19 percent, from 30 percent last month, with 76 percent disapproving.

The "battered economy" and the approval ratings of the guy who prepared the batter are not unrelated. I do feel as if we are Chinese dumplings ready to be dropped into the sizzling oil.
