Harrison Ford = Bush?

Oh come on. Seriously? No, you don't think that... really? Man, that's too bad. I guess they do both wear a lot of costumes.

However, I have always thought that the White House should consider hiring Hollywood screenwriters to write their speeches. Man, those liberal gaybars sure know how to write a good, moral, patriotic speech. (Check out the end of "The American President.") Of course, then Bush would go on and garble it with his mush-speak. But if they can write for Forest Gump, then I'm sure they can write for Bush too.

Will -- What on earth are you talking about? No one said that President Bush is like Harrison Ford. Harrison Ford is a real person. What Lileks said was that President Bush is like "President James Marshall" from the movie. Do you know the difference between an actor and the character he plays?

Like Bush is remotely that articulate. :) And James Marshall would have followed the Powell Doctrine and had a plan for the peace.
