Bush v. Gore: Poppy's Bad Weekend

Imagine being George Herbert Walker Bush this weekend.

While he watches the world honor Al Gore for the Nobel Peace Prize, George H.W. Bush watches countless replays that make him look ridiculous, waving his arms and calling Gore the Ozone Man.

Then he watches the evening news, when a retired three star general accuses his son of dereliction of duty and suggests that if Bush 43 were in the American military, he would be court-martialed for what he has done during the Iraq war, which the Nobel Laureate had opposed.

Tough weekend for George Herbert Walker Bush, who would probably trade sons if he had the chance.

Enough to make a grown man cry.
