Frank Rich has written a devastating summary
of the Bush years. It forgets to mention one thing -- how he and others in the big city press helped Bush ascend with their sneering putdowns of Al Gore. The one Bush strong point that Rich cites -- an ability to spin propaganda -- gulled Rich, too, back in the day. Love Story, Love Canal, earth tone clothing, inventing the Internet. Rich dutifully regurgitated it all, making a carciature of a far better man.
