He Does Know It's TV, Right?

President Bush announced today that the guy from Law & Order will guide his Supreme Court nominee though the Senate confirmation process. Now, you and I both know that Fred Thompson is a former Senator from Tennessee, but does Bush. God knows, that show is on more often than C-Span (C-Span runs 24hrs a day, but only on three channels), is it possible that Bush doesn't know that it is make believe?

I doubt that is the case. I think this has to do with giving the American people someone they trust to lead Bush's nomination though confirmation. If that is the case, this is a potentially brilliant political move, using a warm but stern fatherly type figure that gets beamed into the average American household more often than sunlight. This could signal that a total nut job is on the way.
