The Math Doesn't Add Up

This is just odd.

President Bush's disapproval rating: 60%

Dissatisfaction with the way things are going in the US: 81%

And yet, in a new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll, John McCain leads Barack Obama with 50% to 46%, which is even better than the Fox News Poll showing McCain with a 45% to 42% lead.

Apparently, a huge number of people who are not happy with the direction of the country are simultaneously thrilled with more of the same. Or maybe they just don't think there's a connection between the direction we're going and the leaders who take us there. Or perhaps they're all just gullible and believe any pack of lies and/or twisted distortions spewed forth by politicians.

"Country First?" Hardly. Seems more like Political Party comes first, followed by denial.
