My Lords and Peacocks!

There is absolutely no way that fantasy can compete with reality:
ORLANDO, Fla. - Could there be a third President Bush? The current commander-in-chief said Wednesday that younger brother Jeb would make a great one, too, and has asked him about making a run. The first President Bush likes the idea as well.
This could be the best thing for the Democratic party since, well, that other George III:



George's madness ultimately left the fate of the crown on his eldest son George, Prince Regent. Prince George was put in the daunting position of attempting to govern according to the increasingly erratic will of his father. A letter received by novelist E. M. Frostier from his aunt, Marine Thornton, describes the situation:

"... there he was sitting on the Throne with his King's Crown on, his robes scarlet and ermine, and held his speech written out for him, just what he had to say. But, oh dear, he strode up and made a bow and began "My Lords and Peacocks'. The people who were not fond of him laughed, the people who did love him cried, and he went back to be no longer a king, and his eldest son reigned in his stead".
And that would leave the way for a FOURTH "George". Actually, it would be two presidents at once. What a bargain:
