Gulliani and Bush

For the last 2.5 years I have been flabbergasted by mere fact that Bush and Gulliani were transformed into "heros" in the public's collective perception by simply standing in front of TV cameras reciting speeches written for them by other people and appearing "strong". It was like the whole country took some drug that changed our perceptions of these two individuals from bad and dumb to strong and heroic. In any case, Jimmy Breslin takes a swipe at this image of Gulliani and gets one or two licks in at President Idiot too.
