Remaking presidents in the likeness of Dubya

Apropo the recent cover of Newsweek RETHINKING GEORGE WASHINGTON, what’s with the current effort to repaint past heroes in the image of Dubya? I remember the TV special which stressed the importance of FDR’s keeping secrets from the American people, for the sake of victory in WWII.

Now are they going to paint George Washington as an idiot? As an arrogant nitwit who vacationed 40% of his term? Who went about campaigning on the national dime for causes near and dear to the pocketbooks of his wealthy underwriters?
