W Goes Broadway

Somehow, it all seems very fitting:

You’re Welcome America. A Final Night With George W. Bush reflects all of Dubya’s key traits—it’s tacky, cocky, defensive, a little half-[baked] here and there, utterly full of itself … and bunker-bustingly funny.

On the face of it, Ferrell and director Adam McKay are after easy meat. An old-fashioned Bush-bashing, celebrating a thumping repudiation at the polls, and on a Broadway stage—this is the blue-state equivalent of unfurling a mission accomplished banner.

I'll have to check this one out the next time I'm in The City. Have we ever had a President who was easier to make fun of? Apparently, the show is doing well...
