How to Appreciate Bush

One of the right-wing bloggers I visit fairly often is Stolen Thunder, because he works so hard to put a logical, reasonable face on his illogical, unreasonable love of Bush. He hit a new level the other day, though, when he sought to explain why Bush is "certainly one of the top ten presidents."

No, that is not the punchline.

To justify this extraordinary ranking of a sub-ordinary president, he had to define the rules of the game carefully. So, and I kid you not, he specified that popularity and accomplishment are not valid measures. He never really does define what in world should be considered.

But, I have to admit that he has a great point. If you ignore popularity and accomplishment, Bush takes his rightful place in the pantheon of giants like Chester Arthur and James Polk.

Indeed, if you are looking for lack of accomplishment and popularity, I think Bush may actually be the tops.
