"I understand, President Washington, that you have
reached the conclusion it would be unwise to ever admit
Iowa, the 'American Heartland', into the Union."

"Yes, I strongly believe that to admit Iowa into the
 Union would be to establish an apostate and unnatural
connection with Romneyites, Paulites, Santorumites,
Gingrichites, Perryites, and Bachmannites. Such a
connection would be intrinsically precarious and
would entangle our peace and prosperity in the
 toils of the Spirit of Party and the disorders
and miseries of Religious Faction."

I do believe you have a penchant for political punditry. Is that a word? What's even more unnerving is George's look at the viewer. His Native American name may have been Far Seeing.

Yes, but I'm not a card-carrying member of the Punditocracy. As for Washington's gaze, he was indeed Far Seeing, as his Farewell Address in 1796 clearly demonstrates.
