    ever since Jan. 20, 2001.
    I mentioned this anecdote on metafilter:  At Christmastime in the year 2000, shortly after Bush's election was declared final by the SCOTUS, I was on an airplane discussing Bush with a stranger.
    I was no fan of Bush, but I found myself defending him at least to a small degree against this rabid Texas native. I remember saying, "Oh, come on, he's been governor of Texas for years now and it's not like it has sunk into the ocean."

    Damn. Even that was overstating Bush's competence.
