Prediction: In 500 years, people will think that
the expression "bush league", originated in the early 21st century, in reference to the monumentally stupid GW Bush and his dim-witted administration.

Amateur etymologists will take great pleasure in pointing out that the phrase actually predates the second Bush Administration, but will acknowledge that it's a 'widely held misconception' and a 'reasonable assumption'.
