Hugh Hewitt's Fantasyland

He links excitedly to some horsepuckey Republican poll showing decent likability numbers for Bush, as some sort of resurgence.

Of course, as you should know with Hugh Hewitt by now, reality is the exact opposite.

Just 31 percent of Americans approve of how President Bush is handling his job, according to a poll released Wednesday, the fifth anniversary of the start of the Iraq war.

Sixty-seven percent of those questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey disapprove of the president's performance.

The 31 percent approval number is a new low for Bush in CNN polling, and 40 points lower than the president's number at the start of the Iraq war.

Not surprisingly, Hewitt has a role in John McCain's muddled Al Qaeda/Iraq/Iran/Sunni/Shia mess.
