    United Scatinos of America

    ... when honest historians assess the Bush administration, they will find it more useful to treat George II and his Republican cronies as a criminal organization rather than a political party. The best tool for analyzing Bush's policies is not historiography, but the procedures used by federal agents as they pursue a RICO investigation into a mobbed-up business.

    •  .. no, this is the madness of George III (4.00)
       1. George Washington -- greatest of them all, the man who gave us our independence

      2. George H.W. Bush -- scion of the Yankee aristocracy,  Combat pilot, shot down over the Pacific in WWII,  awarded Distinguished Flying Cross, Congressman, Director of Central Intelligence, Vice President, President.

      By any accurate count, W. is  America's George III.

      •  One George giveth and Two George taketh away (4.00)
      •  Two Georges (4.00)
        They offered Washington the chance to become king, but he turned them down. Would George the Unwise do the same?

        If the two men met, Washington would just shake his head.

        •  No Washington would Kick him in the groin (4.00)
          and curb-stomp W while he's down for the mess W's  made of This country that Washington fought and bled for.   Then he'd add one more kick for our Draft-Dodger in Chief's reckless spending of Soldiers lives on a whim, and his disgraceful treatment of the veterans after they come home.

          Its worth noting that the almost-coup by his General Staff that washington put down by sheer force of personality, was instigated by Congress'es shabby treatment of Revolutionary War vets...

          George the Unwise, as he shall be known from here and on out through history.

    •  Historiography not used correctly. (none)
      The author of this article misused the word. As somebody with a degree in history and a love of true historiography, it sticks out like a giant sore thumb. You don't analyze historical events using historiography -- instead you use historiogrphay to analyze the way in which historians have formed the history of the Bush administration.
