the bush dynasty

From Rolling Stone magazine and Kevin Phillips:

" What makes the Bush family so different -- and, in many ways, so dangerous -- is that they've created a dynasty. The second Bush administration is a political restoration, not unlike the English Stuarts in 1660 or the French Bourbons in 1815. In the last election, the Republican Party turned to the eldest son of the Republican who got the boot eight years earlier. That's what this country fought a revolution to get rid of in 1776. Nobody thought that there would be another royal house, with a couple of Georges."

In case anyone has wondered, I'm for Howard Dean this season. Rolling Stone interview here, his own website here, if you're curious about him.
