Words and things, mostly words.
Yet another Republican ghoul finally sheds his mortal coil, as it was announced that 41st President of the United States, George HW Bush, died. Also a former head of the CIA, Bush was responsible for ushering in the first Iraq War, the War on Drugs, and generally did pretty terrible things. He will, of course, be lauded as a beacon of civility and subject to endless hagiography nonetheless. While nowhere as overtly awful as his dopey progeny, George W Bush, the senior Bush is deserving of all the post-mortem criticism and mockery he receives.
