Fruitcake for President?

According to the latest CBS News poll, the president’s overall approval rating has dipped to 28 percent—which is the lowest number in his presidency and pretty close to Nixon’s all-time low of 24 percent.

And the folks at RadarOnline were nice enough to list a few things that had higher approval ratings than the President:


• Coke Zero (41%)

• Hillary Duff (52%)

• Jennifer Love Hewitt (36%)

• Fruit Cake (40%)

• Kevin Federline (45%)

• Rosie O’Donnell on The View (46%)

• Crocheting (72%)

• Fishing (49%)

• Legalizing Prostitution (58%)

• The Dentist (45%)

• Hanson (53%)

• In-Laws (68%)

• Figs (76%)

• The Name “Shiloh Nouvel Jolie Pitt” (29%)

• Ciara’s Goodies (55%)

• The Pussy Cat Dolls (56%)

• Ryan Seacrest (60%)

• Spiceworld (57%)

• MTV VJ John Norris (35%)

• The Barenaked Ladies (73%)

• Russian Pop Duo T.A.T.U. (58%)

• The “Dude, You’re getting a Dell!” Guy (42%)

• The Backstreet Boys (66%)

• Nickelback (57%)

• Sum 41 (63%)

• Hootie & The Blowfish (84%)

• Stepping in Dog Shit (35%)

• Walking in the Rain Without an Umbrella (60%)

• Small Breasts (50%)

• Getting Kicked in the Balls (41%)

It’s really easy to make jokes about the President’s approval rating right now, and we will definitely hear about these numbers in Letterman and Leno monologues in the coming days, but you have to wonder about the long-term price of what this guy is doing to the country.

On an upside, when The Huffington Post picked up on this story they used the headline “Fruitcake, Ryan Seacrest Polling Higher Than Bush.” When I first read the headline, I thought that editors at THP were calling Seacrest a “fruitcake.” Maybe that was the intent.

    As Orange County’s leading conservative commentator, I would like to point out that Ms. Duff spells her first name with one L, not two.
