Oedipus Wrecks

Froomkin:

Frei:  "George Bush and I were walking along the red carpet down the corridor towards the West Wing when the president suddenly stopped before the portrait of his mother, the former First Lady Barbara Bush.

"It is a stern depiction of the Bush family matriarch, who has ruled her family with a velvet fist for so many decades.

"The president bowed deeply before the portrait of his mother, saying: ‘Matt, this is the shrine!’

That’s just out of my league.  I’m afraid it’s Dr. Helen time
