Bush Pulls a Vince McMahon

05/25/2011 11:45 am ET

Yesterday, during his speech in Idaho, President Bush took a page straight out of Vince McMahon’s playbook. McMahon is the infamous head of World Wrestling Entertainment (formerly the WWF). In the war for public opinion and ratings, McMahon has always been the master.

When WWF competitor National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) found success with the Legion of Doom, McMahon created Demolition.

When rival Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) struck gold with Sandman, McMahon came up with Stone Cold Steve Austin.

When nWo got big, McMahon made up Degeneration X.

So with Cindy Sheehan dominating the scene, what did President Bush do yesterday?

He created Tammy Pruett.

McMahon would be proud.
