NYT INVESTIGATION: BUSH THINKS 'FABULOUS'
"President Bush said recently that the United States has a 'fabulous' military," the NEW YORK
TIMES reports in morning runs.
"On other occasions, he has proclaimed himself proud of such a fabulous country, and of his
fabulous cabinet. Texas and Alaska are both fabulous states. Edward M. Kennedy, Democrat of
Massachusetts, is a fabulous senator. Laura Bush is doing a fabulous job as first lady, and Mr.
Bush's father is a fabulous man."
In the spirit of MasterEditor Howell Ranies, the NYT's A-Section hard-hitting investigation
into fabulousness notes: "Last fall, Mr. Bush attended a fabulous World Series, and last summer
proclaimed baseball a fabulous sport. That was around the same time that Mr. Bush said he hoped
to make 'some fabulous history' with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia. Last year, despite
all the tragedy, was a fabulous year for Mr. Bush and his wife."
"He expects 2002 to be fabulous, too."
"Students of the presidency have noticed that Mr. Bush says 'fabulous' an awful lot. It is
particularly noticeable when Mr. Bush uses the word alongside his trademark Texas frontier
talk," the TIMES reveals in the 1,000-word dispatch.
