Random Generator of Bush Quotes...
Wow, as we inch closer to the presidential inauguration on January 20th, I'm seeing more and more comical "Bushisms," from art exhibitions and Facebook pages to random generators on a major publication site. This is probably one of the funniest links, published in the Guardian. I found it in the ITP mailing list posted by a politically savvy alum.

I can visualize the editor asking writers to come up with 3-5 Bushism quotes at the editorial meeting, the producers entering quotes into an automated database, and the photo/video departments completely uninvolved. What's even funnier is the Google ads below in the lower right module, however, I'm not sure if it's real, since it stayed static through 2 clicks. But maybe it's real?
We'll see how long his legacy will last when his brother, Jeb Bush, runs for President in year 2016. Fox News is already starting his PR. Hopefully people will remember then, the ailing economy and corrupt-corporate-mess this Bush is leaving behind, but I doubt that.
