The boys at LGM have a poll up on the most pressing issue of the moment: President Laura Roslin -- freakishly abysmal failure, or mere Bush-level incompetent?
Seriously, for BSG fans out there: imagine what you'd actually think of Roslin if you had no more information than a reasonably well-informed colonial citizen might have. You haven't seen the inside meetings, you don't know too much about the Cylons, except that they killed your puppy, and Laura Roslin is a kind of religious nut under whose watch the remnants of humanity have had a pretty rough time.
Indeed, her tenure really only looks good by comparison to her immediate successor (whose defense policies were apparently so piss-poor that the Cylons were able to achieve total surprise, eliminating all but 0.002% (?) of the human species, or in the Baltar years where humans actually lived under Cylon occupation.
But by that standard, Dubya looks good when compared to Buchanan, under whose watch the Confederacy actually seceded. That buys him nothing, and Roslin's colleagues buy her nothing. Especially when you consider how that whole "everything will be fine when we get to Earth" plan has worked so far. And all of this is in the context of some pretty staggering war crimes against the Cyclons.
So: Laura Roslin should be impeached and replaced by Tom Zarek, the Spiro Agnew to Roslin's Nixon.
