34% approval rating.

Dear Leader is now down to his core following: CEOs, Freepers and unfortunates in persistent vegetative states.

All is not lost, though — the New York Times can't help but find the silver lining in Bush's free-fall:

Previous presidents have had similar or worse numbers as their nadirs. The Gallup Poll had a 24 percent approval rating for Richard M. Nixon in July 1974. The low point for Jimmy Carter in polls conducted by The Times and CBS News was 26 percent in July 1979. Times/CBS News polls showed George Bush with 34 percent in June 1992 and Bill Clinton with 36 percent in September 1994.

Way to frame it, Liz Bumiller!

Let's see how Bush stands up to other historic figures:

Torquemada: 21%

Baron Harkonnen: 18%

Vlad the Impaler: 15%

Typhoid Mary: 6%

So you see, it's all good news for Bush. There's no place to go but up!
