All hat and no cattle*

Why is this no surprise?

Vicente Fox, the former president of Mexico, derided his political friend as a “windshield cowboy” – a cowboy who prefers to drive…

…Mr Fox offered Mr Bush a ride on a “big palomino” horse. Mr Fox recalled Mr Bush “backing away” from the animal. — from the telegraph.co.uk

I’d post a picture of the cat wearing the hat, but it’s too silly-looking. Besides, Dr. Seuss might take exception.

  2. I know what you’re talking about & that sounds like a reasonable figure, so I’ll agree. there’s just no way around that, except to hope that it works for the good if/when the chosen leader is actually worthy of such a following.

  3. There’s a foundation of approximately 25 to 30 percent that will believe anything, and his core group is composed of those. No matter what he says or does, they’ll follow him off the cliff, like lemmings. Let them have him. In fact, they deserve him.

    I believe that’s true of most political parties in any country. That core group, usually in the range of 20 to 30 percent, are die-hard loyalists who will go to no end to declare their fealty to the leader.

  4. yeah, I suppose that’s true. still… I’m having a hard time figuring out how there’s *anyone* left who doesn’t oppose him in some manner. well time’s passing, he’s not going to go out in a blaze of glory either way eh?

  5. As you know, no one who opposes him is allowed to be anywhere near any of his public appearances. Since they were hand-picked, card-carrying toadies, I’d say they were thinking how wonderful it was just to be there.
