Terrific news ( or...The Once and Future Dickhead )
Our esteemed leader George W. Bush said yesterday that his younger brother Jeb would make "a great president." How George would know what makes a great president is a mystery to me, but that's what he said. Maybe he feels like the name "Bush" is the only necessary qualification. If so, this would put him on par with the voting public who elected him not once, but twice. Although Al Gore would say that even that is open to debate.
It warms my heart to see that we are all hell-bent on returning to the way of life that caused our forefathers to flee England hundreds of years ago, such as religious beliefs driving national policy, and an endless sucession of kings in power solely by virtue of name / birthright. I don't know about you, but I think Jeb would look quite rakish in a powdered wig and painted-on mole. And I can't wait for the day when C-Span catches one of the Bushes smacking a press secretary with the giant turkey leg they're munching on.
One other thing: is it asking too much for us to elect a President that has governed a non-southern, non-shitbox state at some point?
