The One Was Texas Medicine - 2

The Republican Primary debate last night reminded me of the photo to the left, and of the Bush II statement "childrens do learn", made in response to one of his rhetorical questions ("Is our children learning?") raised in one of his dissertations on education.

So, I thought it would be good to mix a little Texas Medicine with some Railroad Gin, like we did two years ago on this date when Poppy Bush I was chiding Maddow and Olbermann for chiding Bush II:

Did you hear that Poppy Bush I was unhappy with Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann?

He does not like this name calling and mean spirited talk on "the cables". So the sick poppy called them "sick puppies".

Wonder why he did not mention the "innertube" (a.k.a. internet) that Senator Ted Stevens once talked about?

He could have done "the google" Bush II talked about you know.

Sometimes a riff explains a presidency and sometimes lyrics will do the job competently:
Now the rainman gave me two cures,
Then he said, "Jump right in."
The one was Texas medicine,
The other was just railroad gin.
An' like a fool I mixed them
An' it strangled up my mind,
An' now people just get uglier
An' I have no sense of time
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.
(Bob Dylan).
