Bush's poll numbers have dropped steadily since he won re-election, as the reality of a second term has sunk in amongst a rapidly souring electorate. That's no surprise: he didn't have a clue before, and his handling of Rumsfeld's "hillbilly armor" debacle proves he didn't suddenly sprout a functioning brain stem in the intervening weeks since Election Day.

Unfortunately the U.S. Constitution has no provisions for an electoral do-over. Buyer's remorse will get despondent voters who are slowly realizing their mistake exactly this: jack squat. In the famous words of Colin Powell: "You break it, you own it."

So enjoy your President, Ohio. Keep a stiff upper lip, Florida. Don't you fret now, Nevada.

You wanted resolve, and you got it, along with 4 more years worth of swaggering ineptitude.

No thanks for dragging the rest of us along with you.
