George Bush can’t seem to emerge from the shadow of his old boss Ronald Reagan, who’s been getting all the choice namesakes (e.g., the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C., and Reagan Washington National Airport). But President Clinton could lend some much-needed gravitas to Bush’s list of namesakes this winter by signing legislation authorizing the CIA to rededicate its Langley, Va., headquarters in his honor. The list already includes:

George Bush Intercontinental Airport Houston, Texas (dedicated in 1997)
George Bush Elementary School Midland, Texas
Bush Cabin at Big Cedar Lodge Ridgedale, Mo.
George Bush Plate Otto’s BBQ, Houston, Texas
President Bush’s Pizza (artichoke hearts, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, Italian sausage, green peppers, mushrooms, onions, and black olives), Fuzzy’s Pizza, Houston, Texas
George Bush Bonefish Tournament Cheeca Lodge, Islamorada, Fla.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
