Saw this and thought of Bush

Randomly wandering around the rather excellent I found this quote from the late great Douglas Adams:

“Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.”

D’you think he knew Dubya was coming? I mean, he didn’t say “elected”, he said “made”. Which is exactly what happened with Dubya!

Geek knowledge: Quote actually comes from “Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy” referring to the fact that the President of the galaxy is only a figurehead, elected to distract attention from where the real power is. The real President doesn’t even know he’s doing the job.
