Idiot’s Village

In view of all the low-key attention (an oxymoron, I know) surrounding today’s wedding of America’s first daughter, I thought it might be interesting to take a look at Crawford, Texas — home of the so-called “Western White House” (in terms of being “west” it’s on the same longitude as Winnipeg) and the real “Bush derangement syndrome” if you ask me. That Bush actually chose to make his home (the “ranch”) in this parochial little shithole almost a decade ago and has spent a considerable proportion of his presidency there clearing brush and what not, says… well, something, I guess.
