Bush: a mean, evil Chauncey Gardener from Being There

OK. Best quote EVER from a call-in on the Al Franken Show on Air America:
Bush reminds me of a mean, evil Chauncey Gardener from Being There.
Hee hee! That is so excellent. Being There one of my very favorite movies of all time. Here's a great description of Chauncey:
Chance is a reclusive, illiterate, passive and simple-minded gardener who is well-groomed, fed on schedule, and dressed in custom-tailored suits. He has lived his whole sheltered life on the walled-in estate of an eccentric millionaire. His only knowledge of the "real" outside world, an encroaching inner-city ghetto area, is through watching television.
Oh hooray for that woman who called in. That was just excellent. I laughed out loud in the library! :D
