It's about time. With even the far left Washington Post reporting a huge surge in the Bush's popularity, it's obvious that the president's comeback is fully underway. How big is this reversal of fortune? Huge. Massive. Startling. Imagine Vanilla Ice returning with an even bigger hit than 'Ice Ice Baby' and you'll get some idea of the unprecedented scale of his rebound.
An eight point rise in one month - Holy cow, that's twenty percent! At that rate, by summer he could be more popular than ice cream. Of course there will always be the America haters who refuse to cut the man any slack regardless of how magnificently he performs, but realistically I think we can look forward to an approval rating in the mid to upper seventies by the time that red red robin come bob bob bobbing along.
Much like a fine cigar, this president gets better with each and every puff.
Call him Rocky if you will - Rocky Patel, a vintage 90 Robusto, a smooth and
earthy smoke with a hint of cedar, and a finish reminiscent of Italian
espresso, not the Starbucks variety, but a deep dark blend one might find in
the finer establishments south of Verona. No, make that Milan, for there the
java bean is picked directly from the lush and fragrant coffee tree and
brewed with the finest mountain spring water.
