Bush's smirk is important. It can't be underestimated.  It echoes his ruling
class background but it also transmits something about that impish
fraternity brother whom you casually knew in junior college but were not
surprised when you heard he was arrested years later as a serial killer.
Underneath it all, Bush is a simple conduit for his handlers, and enjoys the
role.  Sometimes, however, he veers from his carefully crafted role.  His
smirk  is the archetypal smirk of the dim-witted emperor
puppet...Republicans are not immune to recognizing it, but they are
cultivated to overlook it.
