Just Regular Guys

How did our Connecticut-born president manage to reinvent himself as a no-nonsense good ol’ boy from Texas?

Maybe we should ask the dutiful Washington media, who pretend to be ink-stained, working class muckrakers even as they sup themselves complacent on the black tie party circuit of corruption. From Digby's Hullabaloo:

When the equally phony George W. Bush came to town it was love at first sight, and why wouldn't it be? Here you had a man whom these people could truly admire - a rich man of the bluest blood, born into one of the most powerful families in America who nonetheless pretended to be some hick from Midland, Texas. He took great pride in his phoniness, just as they did, and they all danced this absurd kabuki in perfect step for years each pretending to the other that they were all ’just regular guys.’
