Bamboozlepalooza, the <$NoAd$> self-parody phase (from a late AP story) …

At the same time, President Bush warned members of his own party they would join Democrats in facing voters’ wrath if they don’t support his proposed overhaul.

I guess in a way this is fair since, after all, don’t Republicans deserve the chance to laugh at the president too sometimes?

I mean, this is really rich. Whether it’s helped the Democrats or not, privatization has been pretty much a disaster for the president’s party in Congress. It’s certainly one of the most important reasons their public approval ratings have tanked over the last six months. Less than 30% of the public supports President Bush on this issue.
