Thank God for Small Favors

We seem to have heard the last, thank God, of Bush’s incredibly bad imitation of a West Texas accent. (I know it’s bad because I was working as an oil field roustabout in McCamey, Texas, back when Bush was still a boy just up the road in Midland, exploding frogs.

During Bush’s self-worshipping, self-pitying embarassment of a legacy tour hardly a trace remained of the laughably phony accent on which nobody in the media ever called bullshit, to my knowledge, for eight long years.

But now that Bush no longer has to suck up to the base by pretending he’s country, the First Wrangler has reverted to talking like every other spoiled brat from the rolling prairies of Connecticut. (I know that accent, too, having grown up with rich white trash in Connecticut myself. God help me, I probably have it.)

He dumped the ranch in Crawford, too. Someone else is going to have to clear all the brush now.

We shouldn't be so hard on the guy. Maybe he's just growing.

I believe the reason no one in MSM called his bluff on the ranch, his Texas drawl and wearing those Tony Lama's is the notion that those that voted against him knew he was faking it and those that voted for him believed he wasn't.

Honestly, didn't anyone ever wonder why he was the only one in his family who talked that way?
