Paragons of Paradigmatic Presidential Poltroonery: Who's "The Worst Ever"?

By Nicholas Von Hoffman, political gadfly

A question that seems to be on everybody's mind these days turns out to be: Is George Bush the worst President in American history?
But how do you judge? Is he the most morally disgusting? The worst mangler of the English language? Ever since the atom bomb was dropped, we've had a whole string of bozos who cannot pronounce the word "nuclear." How much should that count against them?
A pretty good case could be made that James Madison, one of the Founders and also one of the authors of the Constitution, really tubed the pooch as President about as badly as anyone up to, and possibly including, the Dim Son. At least nobody's burned down the White House (yet) under the Gibbering Chimp, though the destruction of the Twin Towers, on his watch, is a feat of sufficient magnitude to probably qualify him for historical obloquy.

So who is it?

The article, to which you may link by clicking on the headline, above, provides some meaty speculation. Enjoy .
