Impotent Vilification of George W. Bush
Railing against the president doesn't seem to do much good. Sean Wilentz thinks Bush may be the worst president ever. But I remember hating Johnson and Nixon during Viet Times, and Carter during the Iranian hostage crisis. Once these guys are out of office, they don't seem so bad, somehow. But back when I printed a little magazine called Unmuzzled OX, I would gather material by calling for submissions on a particular theme. Indulge yourself, I might say today; tell me how much you hate George 43. But then there are folks like Kirby Olson, part of a vast born-again Christian counter culture. 43 is their savior.
