All the high expectations are making just one thought go round in my head.
Not so long ago, the conservative population of the world convinced themselves, and did their best to try to convince the rest of us, that George W Bush was, not just a competent, but, actually, a completely awesome President. He was the best parts of Winston Churchill and General Patton, all rolled in breadcrumbs and fried to perfection.
Yes, kids, they really did. I am old enough to remember it.
So this is the context in which my brother, whose birthday is the 20th of January, got this cake.
Even for a lefty family, with small, cake-loving nieces helping my Mum decorate, that’s pretty enthusiastic.
