Ah, yes. When I saw that cover shot, I flashed back to one of my very first pieces, written just before the second Kerry debate, in which I said this:

"One of the keys to getting inside the empty room that is Bush’s head is to understand that while Bush’s mind is a blunt instrument, his emotions are as strong as everyone else’s. So the battle between heart and head is never a fair fight for him. That imbalance makes him putty in the hands of the right interlocutor. All you need is knowledge of his sore spots. And the low-hanging fruit on that score is W’s tortured, Oedipal fixation with his father.


Democrats can help bring out the real, ugly Bush by using 41’s disapproval and superiority against 43 at every turn. Forcing 41 to ride to 43’s rescue with a public endorsement of the Iraq occupation would humiliate him in a way that would make Clinton’s Starr-chamber travails look like summer camp."

Making Poppy defend him would indeed have been humiliating. Having Poppy bail him out on the rebound from his political bankruptcy filing must be even worse.
