One of the more telling moments in last night's Carnival of Dickitude in Arizona came when Rick Santorum — and have I mentioned recently what a colossal dick he is? — was trying to explain why he'd voted in favor of No Child Left Behind, the education-reform program that was the signature achievement of President George W. Bush prior to Bush's actual signature achievement of Screwing Up The Entire World. Most of the attention has been paid to the fact that Santorum wound up drowning in oatmeal trying to explain how senators do their jobs. Some indiscreet booing went up, but I don't think the booing had anything to do with Santorum's ungainly tumble into the abyss of Palinspeak.
I think they were booing George W. Bush.

George W. Bush? Who's that?
