PostHeaderIcon Not unexpected, but it does make sense...


As usual, the story behind the Shrub's "favorite painting" -- what he calls "A Charge to Keep" -- doesn't mesh with reality or the truth.
Rather than being a picture of a gallant evangelical riding forth to spread Methodism, it's actually an illustration for a Saturday Evening Post story about a horse thief.
The kicker and the caption from the Post illustration:
"Had His Start Been Fifteen Minutes Longer He Would Not Have Been Caught"
