"All of the above may be true, but political prognosticators sometimes forget that average folks don't follow every twist and turn of Beltway infighting. So keep in mind: Gas prices have been rising. The stock market has been in a swoon. The economy is not exactly inspiring confidence. All that has got to be hurting Bush. When people feel economic anxiety - and see that their leaders appear more obsessed with one brain-damaged woman, parliamentary procedures and fiddling with their retirement money - that's when you suffer in the polls."
-Howard Kurtz
