In addition to occupying a back row seat in the Crawfish Boxes, I'm also the principal writer for Texas Monthly's Bum Steer Awards. Usually my editors choose the Bum Steer of the Year after I'm done with my part of the work. However, this year I felt the choice was so compelling that I had to speak up. Their choice was going to be President Bush. I'm proud to say that they ultimately went my way.
