Do you think our politicians are unpopular? This story from the Washington Post puts any of those thoughts in perspective:
There’s a reason President Bush almost never appears before members of the general public: They really don’t like him.
Despite the delirious mood of Washington Nationals fans on opening night at their new stadium, Bush was greeted with loud boos when he came to the mound to deliver the traditional first pitch.
Video from the Washington Times indicates that the boos were lusty. An ESPN video, via ThinkProgress.org, is more of a mixed bag of boos and cheers. But in additional Youtube videos from fans in right field and high above first base the boos had it.
We should celebrate the fact that none of our politicians are this reviled.
