Bush isn't from Maine, he's from Connecticut. But his scheming, belligerent ignorance is pure Texas. The thing that amazes me about Texas is how he could get away with affecting a Texas accent and prissing about in cowboy boots and hat. Having lived in Mississippi when I was a kid and graduated from Ole Miss, I can honestly say that a prep school-Ivy League boy from CT would be a laughing stock if he tried the same in Mississippi. And, in defense of Maine, where I lived for several years, Mainers think the same of someone trying to act native. But not Texans; they elected him governor.
