F. Scott Fitzgerald Summed up the Bush Dynasty pretty well
F. Scott Fitzgerald offers this in The Great Gatsby:

"They were careless people, Tom and Daisy... they smashed up things and creatures and
then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or
whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up
the mess they had made."


Kind of sums up the Bush Family rather well, doesn't it?

1. Perfect - for them and many other wealthy but empty Americans.

3. yep, perfect summation
replace "Tom and Daisy" with "Dick and Bush" and you've got the Bush Administration.

4. Yes. Nick also looks back at Gatsby's house once everything is over,
and describes it as an "incoherent failure." On November 4, I told my BF that's how I thought of the McCain campaign. Now it's obvious it can mean the last eight years as well.
