Bush's "Footprint" on Washington

The latest issue of Newsweek has a very interesting article entitled "Jesus and Jack Daniel's." The gist of the article concerns the impact that Bush and his administration is having on the capital. The authors, Jonathan Darman and Holly Bailey, claim that "in subtle but interesting ways, however, the mostly Red State Bush crowd has infiltrated the social fabric of the mostly Blue State capital." Is conservatism the newsest trend in D.C.? I really have no idea, but with Bush in office for four more years, and more Republican seats in Congress, it seems hard to overlook this growing trend in politics.
