|Cheney now seven points behind the public beating of children|| |

Bush's approval rating has fallen to 35. Maybe America is starting to realize that secret prisons and endless war aren't really the best government we can possibly hope for.
Dick Cheney, in the same poll, has a 19 percent approval rating.
That's two points less popular than cheating on your spouse and seven points behind corporal punishment in schools (scroll down).
That's down in what can be politely called lunatic territory. As I've been pointing out for years, twenty or thirty percent of Americans believe any insane thing you can imagine.
Dick Cheney is now 18 points behind the number of people who believe alien beings have secretly contacted the U.S. government.
Bush, similarly, now trails the number of people who think astrology is scientific by five points.
Scottie McClellan, however, can still spin things: Bush only trails the aliens by two points.
