from the Whiskey Bar

I'll admit I don't often vist Billmon's Whiskey Bar-- he has this map up, referencing a series of polls by which say that at the moment, the president has a net positive approval rating only in Idaho, Wyoming and Utah. This may be, but it's the wrong time for the democrats to get cocky-- the GOP still seems to control, if not everything you see or hear, to borrow from the old Outer Limits show, much of it. Last year, for example, the democrats crowed over defeating the GOP attempt to privatize social security, but most ordinary people still think social security is going broke and that the democrats have offered nothing by which to fix it.
