This just in from the Obama White House: Good news on the polling front. Even though the president’s job approval ratings have plunged into negative territory in every other poll, his score on the all-important PSA Index continues to rise. The president’s rating on this index (nothing to do with the prostate) has now reached an astonishing 97% – up from 87% in late 2009, and is now at its highest level ever, according to White House spokesman Robert Gibbs.
The PSA Index is the official measure of Presidential Self-Approval. It first came into existence in December of 2009, when the president appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show and awarded himself a B-Plus for his first year in office.
