All you really need to know about Bush

This is an actual quote - not a joke - from a page 1 New York Times article, in tone a pure puff piece, that appeared on Sunday, May 21, 2000. The article is called "GEORGE W. BUSH'S JOURNEY: A Boy From Midland," and tellingly (in retrospect) subtitled "A Philosophy With Roots In Conservative Texas Soil." The author (Nicholas Kristof) quotes Bush childhood friend Terry Throckmorton as follows:

"We were terrible to animals," recalled Mr. Throckmorton, laughing. A dip behind the Bush home turned into a small lake after a good rain, and thousands of frogs would come out.

"Everybody would get BB guns and shoot them," Mr. Throckmorton said. "Or we'd put firecrackers in the frogs and throw them and blow them up."

Funny how unsurprised I was by this.
