This is from This is from New York Magazine, Feb 4, 2008. (before McCain had clinched the Rep. Primary). The article was called Anatomy of a Freak Show by Kurt Andersen. Here is his formula and his justification.
(Romney + Huckabee)/3 + .01McCain + sqrt(Guilliani) = Bush
- Romney and Bush were both Businessmen, though Bush was a pathetic one, while Romney was a good one.
- Huckabee and Bush are both Evangelical Christians, though Bush is a pathetic one, while Huckabee is a good one.
- McCain and Bush were both party boys in college who later became figher pilots, though Bush avoided real combat.
- Guilliani and Bush both have a chip on their shoulder.
