Republicans have a less than 30% approval rating. That's about the same 30% who stood by MoronMonkeyBoy Bush the Chimp until the bitter end no matter how absurd and ridiculous things got. Right to lifers, twisted radical militarists, greedy prick corporate royalists, slack jawed religious fundamentalists and a small assortment of other stupid fucks are the small constituency that they still hang onto. No matter how fucked up and stupid the republicans get, they will probably always hang onto the 30%. It's their bottom and indicative of exactly what percentage of Amurkkkans are complete idiots and total wasters of valuable oxygen and precious food.
But as if the republican dip shits didn't have it bad enough with their hypocritical attacks on the Obama budget, they've got a senator from Alabama pulling out the ghost of Joe Mccarthy and claiming to know of "17 socialists in congress." Oooooooo. "socialists." Maybe they'll have senate hearing and let you be the chairman of a committee made up of nothing but your fellow republicans. Wouldn't that be great.
The real feather in the republican cap these days however is KKKarl Rove. Check out his latest exploits:
Rove: Biden a 'blowhard' and 'liar'
AP –Carol E. Lee –
Karl Rove called Joe Biden a “blowhard” and a “liar” in response to some of the vice president’s comments about the Bush administration.
"He’s a serial exaggerator. If I was being unkind I would say he’s a liar, but it’s a habit he ought to drop,” Rove said on FOX News. "You should not exaggerate and lie like this when you are the vice president of the United States.”
I wonder how long Rove and his dick wad buddies will be around?

Breaking news: Indictment of Bush Officials May Come in Days
* The imminent indictment in Spanish courts of former officials of the Bush Administration is being applauded by civil and human rights organizations and legal scholars. The popular wave of support for indictment of Bush officials will inevitably lead to Bush himself.
* Newsweek Magazine blew open more shocking news about Bush' system of kidnapping, secret prisons and torture. A secret Red Cross report indicates that many kidnapped and tortured people were turned into "disappeared persons" by the CIA under instructions from Bush and Cheney. A former Bush administration official told Newsweek's Michael Isikoff that the information had been hidden from the Red Cross. "The majority of the people in the CIA program are unaccounted for. We don't know what happened to them," a human rights investigator told Isikoff.
* Like Bush, former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet, thought his power would shield him from criminal prosecution when his regime kidnapped and tortured and assassinated individuals who became known as the "disappeared." It was when Spanish courts brought indictments against Pinochet that everything changed. As Michael Ratner, president of the Center for Constitutional Rights said, "the importance of this investigation [in Spain] can not be understated. Contrary to statements by some, the Spanish investigations are not 'symbolic.' Just ask Augusto Pinochet, who was stranded under house arrest in England and who ultimately faced criminal charges in Chile because of the pressure of the Spanish courts. If and when arrest warrants are issued, 24 countries in Europe are obligated to enforce them. The world is getting smaller for the torture conspirators.”
Ramsey Clark, former U.S. Attorney General has called for the prosecution of Bush and other high officials in the United States, stating, "The greatest danger arising from impunity for President Bush and his cohorts would be that all subsequent officials will feel secure in committing the same crimes and the people, having failed to compel impeachment for such open, notorious and egregious crimes, will feel even more helpless to prevent them. Ultimately the power and the responsibility to prevent criminal acts by government is with the people."
