I leave George W. Bush out of that “clever, bright, witty and personable” category. The man’s an idiot, and I’m ashamed I ever supported him.
While we’re all regretting our former support of GWB, let’s recall a little context. In 2000, it was GWB vs. Al Gore. In 2004, it was GWB vs. John Kerry.
Gore? Kerry? Say what you like about George, either of those guys would have been 100 percent worse. Right? Right.
