On Monday, George W. Bush reached the 100-day mark of his presidency. What do you think of the job he's done so far?

  • “Has it been 100 days already? Wow, it seems like only yesterday that Bush cut off funding for overseas abortion providers.”

  • “Oh, Christ. I'm supposed to have an opinion on Bush's first 100 days? Geez, I dunno, what all did he do?”

  • “Since Gore really won the election, I've only been following what he's been doing these past 100 days. It hasn't been much.”

  • “Well, he did lower drinking-water standards, revive hostilities with China, and endanger the budget surplus, so I guess that's all good.”

  • “Sixty-three percent of the American people approve of the job Bush is doing. Then again, 98 percent of the American people are fucking morons.”
