Bush's true mandate

Bush prefers to talk about his supposed mandate as "political capital." Presumably, he's worried that his Bible Thumper contingent will misconstrue "mandate" as "man date" and burn crosses on the White House lawn.

Either way, a mandate used to signal something much stronger than a simple majority of votes. It used to mean very strong support across a broad cross-section of the electorate. With so many in the U.S. (and the rest of the world) vehemently opposed to almost every single one of his policies, I offer a more accurate list of who Bush truly does have a mandate over.
  1. Racist fucks
  2. Religious zealots
  3. Morons
  4. Greedy bastards
  5. Opti-scan voters

Truth is, it's hard to find a single Bush voter who doesn't fit at least one of these categories! Not even his own family!
