Acme::Bushisms - Dubya Does Perl


        use Acme::Bushisms;

        print "Hello world";


The first time you run a program under use Acme::Bushisms, the module removes all the unsightly printable, democrat, and liberal characters from your source file. The code continues to work exactly as it did before, but now it contains Bush speak:

        use Acme::Bushisms;

        "Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream."
        --George W Bush, LaCrosse, Wis., Oct. 18, 2000


The Bushisms are random quotes from the Complete Bushisms Website by Jacob Weisberg on Slate. The address is If this page is unreachable, then a default Bushism is used.
