A Quote from Douglas Adams...
    #1980109 - 10/05/03 12:39 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

The President in particular is very much a figurehead - he weilds no real power whatsoever. He is apparently chosen by the government, but the qualities he is required to display are not those of leadership but those of finely judged outrage. For this reason the President is always a controversial choice, always an infuriating but fascinating character. His job is not to wield power but to draw attention away from it.

Ok, so it's from The Hitchiker's Guide, which is fiction, but it's also a parody of Life.

I love this quote, and I think I'll start calling George W by the nickname "Zaphod". Or maybe ZB.

I think it is accurate.

What was the name of the hermit that was the real leader of the galaxy?

He couldn't remember his name, and saw so need for having one anyway.

But his cat was called The Lord.
