According to a just-released NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, just 26 percent believe the nation is headed in the right direction.

Bush scores a 37% approval rating. Of those polled, 58% believe Bush is facing a long-term setback from which he’s unlikely to improve. They think we've seen the best performance we're likely to see out of Bush.

Think about that for a moment. The succession of disastrous judgments and actions by GWB over the past five years is the best he's got to give us. Does that mean it's going to go DOWNhill from here? Reminds me of one of the greatest novel titles ever, "I've Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up To Me."

Dems scored on the question, "What is your preference for this year’s election, a Republican or Democratic controlled congress?" a solid 50%, Rethugs, 37%. (Keith Olbermann just said that in that poll, no party ever before got 50% or above.)

Which prompts one to pondering the irresistible question, "Can we really regain control of one of the Congressional houses in '06?" My gut tells me that one of two things will happen:

(1) The nation will be so tired of the ineptitude and venality of Bush/Cheney and the Rethugs, they'll vote the bastards out. They'll take out their disgust and disappointment about Bush on Congressional Republicans.
(2) They'll be weary and wary of Bush but still vote for their local Congressthug, and the makeup of Congress won't change much.
