Bush Sox

Everybody's dying to make analogies between the World Series and the presidential election. Usually they pick a Disney storyline in which the big money and historic dominance of the Yankees/Republicans is defeated by the scrappy and good-hearted Red Sox/Democrats. But I think there may be room for the reverse analogy. If Bush wins the election, he will be like the Sox.

Whoa, hey, where are you taking me? Aaaaah ....

UPDATE: OK, now that I've fled to my secret bunker far from Massachusetts, I can explain the analogy. In the first two games of the Series, the Sox made eight errors and yet still managed to win both times. Similarly, if Bush wins it will be despite a series of errors -- on Iraq, homeland security, the budget, etc. -- that ought to have handed this election to Kerry.
