Yes, and the workers who built the Panama Canal were only suffering from "a little mosquito fatigue"

On Larry King last night, former President George H.W. Bush showed a father's natural unwillingness to face the idea that his son had, in six years, pissed away the future of a political dynasty that GHWB and patriarch Prescott Bush had spent over sixty years working to establish.
Former President George Bush told CNN's Larry King Monday that the electorate may be experiencing "Bush fatigue."

And it may be the reason his son, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, is sitting out the 2008 presidential election, the 41st president said.

"There's something to that -- there might be a little Bush fatigue now," former President Bush told CNN's Larry King when asked if he agreed with a recent assessment from GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney that Jeb Bush would currently be a frontrunner for the Republican party's presidential nomination if his last name wasn't Bush.

But the former president predicted his youngest son may enter politics again in the future.

"I hope that Jeb, who left office looking good, is not through with politics," the elder Bush said. " I think he's a good man, most other people think that, a man of principle. And I think he's got a future."

Sure he does. If he changes his name to Schickelgruber.
