I remember watching "Fahrenheit 9/11" and realizing that Bush doesn't seem to have a clue how to actually use a chainsaw. There was one scene where he was trying to cut through a log in the woods, and with several guys helping him (probably secret service agents who also had no clue) still never really managed to do it. He tried several cuts and would get so far and then jam up his saw. Then he would try again in a different place. His assistants would then try to turn the log for him but that didn't work very well either. He didn't have enough sense to just make an undercut. Watching that made me realize that whole wood cutting business was just for show; and yet, as you say, Bush was seen as being a genuine, chainsaw weilding, downhome kind of guy. Of course, why most Americans want to elect someone they can identify with anyway is beyond me. Well, not really. Most Americans are too dumb to realize that most Americans are dumb. After all, this is an electorate that even now thinks that Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11.
