The President Vanishes

Richard Cohen may be auditioning for a writing job with Jon Stewart -- he writes about how good old George, the wise-cracking fellow some people think would be good company -- that George Bush doesn't seem to exist any more. And he does it with pointed perception and more than a small amount of wit:

"Where it has mattered most -- the three debates -- Bush has been wooden, ill at ease and downright spooky. He makes bad jokes, cackles at them in the manner of a cinematic serial killer and has lacked the warmth that he not only once had but that I thought would compensate for a disastrous presidency and give him a second -- God help us -- term. In short, he could take over the Bates Motel in an instant."
