What to do with George 
Back in 1972, when George H.W. and Barbara Bush grew tired of apologizing for their son's drunken, womanizing ways, they spirited him out of Houston, out of sight of their circle. They fobbed him off to their old friends in Alabama, the Allisons. Dubya didn't change his ways there (he famously never showed up for his National Guard duty), but at least the Texas movers and shakers weren'r hearing about him on a regular basis anymore.

In 2004, his parents may be proud of him, but for many Americans, Dubya is an cringe-inducing embarrassment. The whole world is watching him now. Where can we ship him off to? Back to Texas, I suppose. It won't help with the embarrassment part, but I guess it'll have to do.
