Almost there...

Tuesday, December 21, 2004


I'm genuinely curious about whether or not there's a real problem with George Bush. This isn't a particularly well put together video, but it does illustrate an important issue -- George is not the man he once was. He comes across as an idiot now, but it wasn't always that way. Is it drugs? Is it a degenerative illness? What's the scoop here?

Still amazed that he got reelected.


  • Without having viewed the video, I think I've read a pretty convincing explanation: Electability.

    Bush ran for Congress in Texas, and was hammered by his opponent for being a carpet-bagging Yankee with a Yalie accent and high-falutin' ways. (Or some variation thereof). Bush lost that election. Bush is from an extremely competitive family, and decided he wasn't going to lose again, no matter what it took, even if it meant talking with a Texas whine and sounding like an idiot.

    I saw a bit of his speech in Canada recently, and he sounded more polished and intelligent than I'm used to his speeches sounding - perhaps now that he has no more elections to fight, he's beginning to drop the act?
