Name the new bogeyman Add to ...

Given that President Bush won't be around much longer to be "misunderestimated," I am keen to know who the Liberals will set up as Stephen Harper's bogeyman. It just won't be the same on political panels when Liberals can't call out "Bush." The Liberals have tried to link Harper to Bush in the last three federal elections. Not since Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Devito were together in Twins has there been such a farcical and inept attempt to link separate beings.  But just like the movie, no awards were garnered in recognition of effort.

The Bush is now burning so where will the Liberals guide us?  Somewhere in Iggyland I am sure someone is working on the new bogeyman composite. Who or what can it be? Tell me, dear readers, what you think. The best answer gets a Mission Accomplished banner if one still exists; if not, you get my undying affection for a good laugh.

I bet Iggy himself is breathing a sigh of relief with President Bush's imminent departure given he and Mr. Bush shared many common positions on Iraq. It would be hard to criticize your opponent when your own DNA composite analysis reveals an admiration for the bogeyman's behavior.
