Social Networking and Approval Rating

On the Mutiny Universe Blog, I've jokingly lamented a handful of times of my tardiness when it comes to following Web trends. Here again is a funny cartoon that probably met its peak of popularity about this time last year:

If you can't see the video, it's a cartoon depicting George W. Bush and Dick Cheney trying to improve their approval ratings by joining MySpace. I like it because it satirizes the current administration with a slightly new angle - Bush 'n Dick as adult teenagers pining for popularity.

Speaking of the current administration, a couple of weeks ago Bush's (and the GOP's) main strategist, Karl Rove, resigned (effective at the end of this month). Just yesterday, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales quit amidst the apparent implosion of the lame duck administration.

I guess that means Tim Robbins' adaptation of Phil Ochs' "Here's to the State of Mississippi" is getting less and less relevant, or more validated, depending on your point of view. Here's to the land...!!! Sing it, Ed!
