Dies ist ein Begriff, der aus dem Namen des amerikanischen Präsidenten "George W. Bush" und dem englischen Wort "bash" besteht, was soviel heißt wie "hauen", "auf jemanden einschlagen". Manchen Kritikern von Präsident Bush wird vorgeworfen, dass sie "Bush-Bashing" betreiben. Ihnen gehe es nicht um eine ernsthafte Auseinandersetzung mit der Politik von Bush, sondern darum, auf den Präsidenten "einzuhauen". Dies wird vor allem links-gerichteten Kritikern vorgeworfen, die den Präsidenten besonders mit Witzen und Karikaturen verspotten.

Origin of "GOP"
A favorite of headline writers, "GOP" dates back to the 1870s and '80s. The abbreviation was cited in a New York Herald story on October 15, 1884; "' The G.O.P. Doomed,' shouted the Boston Post.... The "Grand Old Party" is in condition to inquire...."
But what "GOP" stands for has changed with the times. In 1875 there was a citation in the Congressional Record referring to "this gallant old party," and , according to Harper's Weekly, in the Cincinnati Commercial in 1876 to "Grand Old Party."
Perhaps the use of "the G.O.M." for Britain's Prime Minister William E. Gladstone in 1882 as "the Grand Old Man" stimulated the use of GOP in the United States soon after.
In early motorcar days, "GOP" took on the term "get out and push." During the 1964 presidential campaign, "Go-Party" was used briefly, and during the Nixon Administration, frequent references to the "generation of peace" had happy overtones. In line with moves in the '70s to modernize the party, Republican leaders took to referring to the "grand old party," harkening back to a 1971 speech by President Nixon at the dedication of the Eisenhower Republican Center in Washington, D.C.
Indeed, the "grand old party" is an ironic term, since the Democrat Party was organized some 22 years earlier in 1832.
Origin of the Elephant
This symbol of the party was born in the imagination of cartoonist Thomas Nast and first appeared in Harper's Weekly on November 7, 1874.
An 1860 issue of Railsplitter and an 1872 cartoon in Harper's Weekly connected elephants with Republicans, but it was Nast who provided the party with its symbol.
Oddly, two unconnected events led to the birth of the Republican Elephant. James Gordon Bennett's New York Herald raised the cry of "Caesarism" in connection with the possibility of a thirdterm try for President Ulysses S. Grant. The issue was taken up by the Democratic politicians in 1874, halfway through Grant's second term and just before the midterm elections, and helped disaffect Republican voters.
While the illustrated journals were depicting Grant wearing a crown, the Herald involved itself in another circulation-builder in an entirely different, nonpolitical area. This was the Central Park Menagerie Scare of 1874, a delightful hoax perpetrated by the Herald. They ran a story, totally untrue, that the animals in the zoo had broken loose and were roaming the wilds of New York's Central Park in search of prey.
Cartoonist Thomas Nast took the two examples of the Herald enterprise and put them together in a cartoon for Harper's Weekly. He showed an ass (symbolizing the Herald) wearing a lion's skin (the scary prospect of Caesarism) frightening away the animals in the forest (Central Park). The caption quoted a familiar fable: "An ass having put on a lion's skin roamed about in the forest and amused himself by frightening all the foolish animals he met within his wanderings."
One of the foolish animals in the cartoon was an elephant, representing the Republican vote - not the party, the Republican vote - which was being frightened away from its normal ties by the phony scare of Caesarism. In a subsequent cartoon on November 21, 1874, after the election in which the Republicans did badly, Nast followed up the idea by showing the elephant in a trap, illustrating the way the Republican vote had been decoyed from its normal allegiance. Other cartoonists picked up the symbol, and the elephant soon ceased to be the vote and became the party itself: the jackass, now referred to as the donkey, made a natural transition from representing the Herald to representing the Democratic party that had frightened the elephant.

The White House
For more than 200 years, the White House has been more than just the home of the Presidents and their families. Throughout the world, it is recognized as the symbol of the President, of the President's administration, and of the United States. The White House is the only private residence of a head of state that is open to the public, free of charge.

Ghosts in the White House
On June 12th, 1945, then-U. S. President Harry Truman wrote the following letter to his wife, Bess. She had recently taken their daughter to visit relatives over the summer, and Truman's subsequent attempts to work had been somewhat hampered by the endless noises and draughts emitted by the White House; a building which at the time was desperately in need of repair. Truman's explanation for the "unbearable din", however, was slightly more imaginative.

This has been one of America's most enduring cookbooks. It was in print, under varying names and guises for fifty years and has been reprinted, in whole or part, throughout the 20th century. Most early editions were printed on poor quality paper and so have not survived in easily usable form.

White House Bowling Alley
Das Weiße Haus in Washington D. C. ist Amtssitz und offizielle Residenz des Präsidenten der Vereinigten Staaten, des weiteren beherbergt es das Büro des Vizepräsidenten. Es liegt an der Pennsylvania Avenue (Hausnummer 1600) in Washington D. C.
Seinen Namen erhielt es offiziell 1901 von Theodore Roosevelt aufgrund seines weißen Außenanstrichs, es dürfte aber schon zuvor umgangssprachlich als weißes Haus bezeichnet worden sein.
Das Weiße Haus wurde zum größten Teil aus Obernkirchener (Landkreis Schaumburg, Niedersachsen) Sandstein und Marmor von der kroatischen Insel Brac gebaut. Seit dem Wiederaufbau wurde und wird der Sandstein weiß übermalt. Im Jahr 2004 wurde die witterungsresistente Farbe eines Unternehmens aus Diedorf bei Augsburg für den Gebäudeanstrich verwendet.

This book exposes and classifies racist words found among the 160,000 words in Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary. Other versions of Merriam-Webster dictionaries (as well as other prominent English dictionaries) are also examined and critiqued. This comprehensive work is the result of a 25-year study by the author, but has been skillfully reduced to a relatively few pages. Though detailed, it is written in easy-to-understand English with the offending words alphabetized and catagorized. Ancient words of wisdom grace the beginning of each chapter. The book comes complete with footnotes, subject and word indexes, appendices, and illustrations.
