'Ahh, Dick ... Isn't There Something We Can Do About All These Subpeonas? ...The Results - The Garlic Week Poll

Considering all the xenophobic rhetoric, phony terror alerts and smearing during their terms to-date, that it is all but certain President Bush and Vice President Cheney are the first two people that are the least happy with the House and Senate going over to Democratic Majorities in 2007, and our Garlic Poll Voters were, as usual, quite perceptive to that.

3. NBC’s David Gregory to become even grouchier; A lot more podium head-banging from White House Press Secretary Tony Snow Tally 28%

4. More K Street Lobbyists, as they will have to work double-shifts to keep pace Tally 13%

This week’s Poll - President Bush is delaying his new strategy for Iraq until next month because

The 110
th Congress will likely wipe the smiles of Bush and Cheney’s faces, and have them wishing that they received one of former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld’s “Snowflakes”, telling them that you “Go with the Executive Powers you have, not the Executive Powers you wished you had at a later date”
