Pat Oliphant for July 16, 1988
On the stony Greek island of Lesbos, the tiny village of Stonini clings to a stony hillside. From this tiny village in 1907, George Bushopodopolis brought his family to America in search of a new life. Through honest hard work and enterprise, they prospered and prospered. Woman: George, I'm pregnant again! At his honest, hardworking knee, George taught his son, George Jr. the values of hard work and honesty and and and... Man: Ah, jeez, it's no good, sir! We've sold you as a Texan and everything, but the hardworking migrant forebears bit ain't working! Vice President George H.W. Bush: Well, jeepers, guys - try harder! He's gonna kill me with all this Greek chic! Punk: Maybe you could prove Barbara's Jewish.
