Do you remember the all too important campaign question of “Who would you rather have a beer with?” It’s the question that helped George W. Bush not win the popular vote in 2000 and defeat John Kerry in 2004. W was the guy you’d rather sit next to at bar because Al Gore and Kerry lacked personality. They were said to be too stiff. Maybe they would have been great presidents, but we’ll never know because you would not want to share a cold one with one of those lame-o’s.
And so we got eight years of George W. Bush.
