Okay staff, we all know we’ve got a problem. The president isn’t as popular as he used to be. His numbers are down, and the Republicans are slinging mud. Anybody got an idea?

Uh, could he save a small child from a burning runaway freight train, Boss?

Hmmmm. Not bad, Lamar, but he’s done that twice already. I think he needs something different this time.

Hey Boss, it’s just a thought, but maybe it’s time to call in Brady?

BRADY! Yes! The incredible image-boosting golden retriever! That’s brilliant! Is Brady available?

Giving us the creeps?

Blog Guy, last week you wrote about an opinion poll naming Casey Anthony the “most hated person in America.”

The folks you love to hate?

Blog Guy, you haven’t written about any new signs of that onrushing Apocalypse recently. Is it safe to come out of the panic room?

Okay, these numbers just make no sense to me. The latest New York Times/CBS News Poll shows that 82 percent of Americans now disapprove of the way Congress is handling its job.

So wait. You’re telling me that 18 percent of Americans DO approve of how they’re doing? Seriously?
