Despite the best efforts of the media, the usually somnambulent and doggedly apathetic American people are discovering they've been lied to. The situation in Iraq is such a shambles that the previously arrogant and condescending President is now begging the despised "Old Europe" for help. And while the economy itself may pick up slightly from now until November, it's not creating jobs. They're not panicking yet, but the Reeps have got to be worried that not even the usually reliable cynical flag waving, France bashing and 9/11 invoking will work this time.
