Story of a picture or why goodbye to Bush will be such a relief. 

When he became President George W. Bush selected a painting to hang in the Oval Office entitled “A Charge To Keep”. He tells visitors that it depicts the Methodist Circuit Riders, who in the 19th spread the Good Word across the Alleghenies.

But he is mistaken. It actually shows a horse thief fleeing a lynch mob.

This for me sums up the disconnect between reality and what goes on in the presidential head. Roll on 20th January 2009 when we will at least get a different picture on the wall and hopefully a president who does not suffer from the Tolstoy Syndrome.
