Bushed! Recycled Appointments, 7th Grade Grammar & Bush's Legacy

Friday's Bushed! segment on Countdown covered Bush's re-recess appointment of Richard Stickler to head of mine safety after being soundly rejected by the Senate twice;the White House scrubbing of his 7th grade grammar skills and finally, Bush's legacy -- his people actually believe that the economy and conditions in the Middle East will be so good by the end of his term that his approval ratings will hit the mid-40's. I think Keith sums it up best:

Olbermann: "They're probably wrong about how good a year it'll be in the Middle East and in the economy, on the other hand, his approval rate probably will rise because people will be so happy he's leaving."
