It's Been a Fabulous Year

I think one reason Bush is losing the PR battle with Cindy Sheehan—other than her being right about the war and Dubya being a lying weasel—is that she's a mom. If Bush is Mr. All American, as he claims, then how can he butt heads with a mother? He can't. He'll lose no matter what.

Come to think of it, Bush has a mixed record when it comes to all three pillars of Americanism: mom (described above), baseball and apple pie.

Bush vs. Baseball—When he was part owner of the Texas Rangers, he made a lot of money for not doing much work. He was the ownership's public face, and the notice helped propel him to governor. You might be surprised that there are financial scandals associated with these events, too boring to mention here. In the end, he certainly got the best of baseball.

Bush vs. Apple Pie—Physically, the pie's no match, although Dubya did get his ass whupped by a bag of pretzels. Mentally, that’s another story. For example, I've never heard of an apple pie saying this:

"If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator."

Or this:

"I just want you to know that, when we talk about war, we're really talking about peace."

Or, of course, three months after the Sept. 11 attacks, this:

"But all in all, it's been a fabulous year for Laura and me."

I bet it was.
