Things could be worse

Embattled Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, whose approval ratings have sunk to a lowly (for him) 53%, can still count his blessings.

After all, things could be worse. I mean, imagine if he'd lied to the American people about Iraq's WMDs, constantly referred to the nation being "at war" as an excuse to curtail civil liberties, and yet despite the war had still chosen to take more weeks of vacation this summer than the most laid-back law students working grossly-overpaid and cushy Biglaw jobs. If he'd done that, his approval ratings might be even lower.
