|From Album 5|
So, maybe not a groundswell, but at least some on the commentariat are suggesting that the other Bush is, if not Mr. Right, Mr. Right-Enough/If-You-Squint-He-Kind-Of-Looks-Like-A-Daddy-Hero figure…this despite the fact that his self-identified Steely-Eyed-Rocket-Man moment was actually more Operation Stumblebum and his total cave/fold to the wingnuts during the extended obscenity over Terry Schiavo was something they’ll now go to great lengths to ignore if not forget.
But the real tell here is the lengths they’ll go to in ignoring the fact that a significant element of the Republican Party is, well, bugfuck insane — and has been ever since they began feeding at the trough of myths ladled out by Ronaldus Magnus. Oh, and they also ignore the very real fact that the present occupant of the White House IS in fact pretty close if not spot-on with regards to their fondest hopes. Moderate, not particularly partisan, a proponent of an agenda they agree with…well, except for the fact that he’s a Democrat. Which must be a particularly egregious sin in their eyes.
