Thanksgiving is a major holiday among the infidel Americans, and Bush is spending the week at his Texas ranch. But at least he's not lonely, as over one hundred anti-war protesters are camped nearby.

In addition to turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and a hot buttered roll, Bush has a number of problems on his plate as well. His approval ratings continue to hover below 40%. The only thing keeping him from going even lower are his fellow Republicans, 80% of whom think the President is doing a great job. Apparently these people admire liars who lead them into war using exaggerated claims and with absolutely no idea of what needs to be done once a country is occupied.

While Bush doesn't have to worry about reelection, his party members in congress do. And even though those elections are still almost a year off, they are beginning to sweat bullets. And the fact that a number of them may be caught up in a series of corruption investigations doesn't help.
