Dubya's DUFF

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the worst of us all?
George Bush must be heaving a sigh of relief - and gratitude.  After years of languishing at the bottom of the Fave Presidents list, he finally found himself getting bumped up a notch, yielding the bitter cup of absolute obloquy to his insouciant successor. None of Obama's achievements in office can compare in sheer monumental amazingness to his having made his hated predecessor look good. Bush the execrable. Bush the pathetic. Bush the odious. Bush the cute? 
      All is relative, even evil; and no hue so dark that another can't lighten. Like homely girls who make unwitting foils for their their devious friends, US presidents, too, can play the DUFF. Only, in the realm of American politics the acronym means something quite different: Disgustingly Unpopular Failed Follower.
