In Which I Play Andrew Northrup

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

This Paul Conrad cartoon features (I think) George W. Bush, at 79% approval, running in a race, and another George W. Bush, at 42% approval, gaining on him. But at first I thought it featured Bush the father and Bush the son, and it occurred to me -- wouldn't it be awesome if George H. W. Bush decided to run for President against his own son? After all, we already know that President Bush doesn't much like the course of action that George W. is taking. And who else could really run for the Republican nomination? Dude, if only.
