Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Feeling A Little Blue

According to the latest polling data, President Bush has a net positive approval rating in only three states (Idaho, Utah and Wyoming). His approval rating in Texas is an anemic 42%, compared to 56% disapproving (once again, I am accidentally in the majority); with a majority of men, women, all age groups, independants, moderates, and even those who "attend church regularly" disapproving. His approval rating among whites in Texas is only 50%, with 49% disapproving. His approval rating among those who identify as pro-life is just 52%, with 46% disapproving. His lowest approval rating is in Harris County (33% approval, 62% disapproval), but just behind that is East Texas, with a 39% approval, 58% disapproval. Even in West Texas, Bush is behind the eight-ball, with 46% approval and 52% disapproval. These numbers are absolutely mind-blowing and indicate just how badly the political slats under this Administration have rotted away.
