That’s My Bush! The Definitive Collection

Paramount Home Video

Back in early 2001, when all that concerned us about Dubya was low IQ and a past of cocaine and alcohol abuse, the creators of South Park crafted a sitcom that would follow the antics of the First Family. And while it only lasted eight episodes, the spoof skewered both the pre-9/11 government and television. Aiming its sights on the monotony of sitcoms, the show suffers the same problems it attempts to poke fun at. By the fourth episode, the jokes already seem familiar, even if the perceptive humor is dead on. The cast has placed tongues perfectly in cheek, and it would have been interesting to see where the series would go, but the events of 9/11 would never have allowed it. While the show’s satire is needed now more then ever, Dubya is wrapped up in stuff that would stifle even Archie Bunker.
