|English term or phrase: Tony and Dubya - human Californias|
|...And somehow we find it hard to quite believe in so many of our political leaders; Tony and Dubya are human Californias.|
Is Dubya the nick of president Bush? and can you explain that "human Californias"?
Thanks a lot in advance!
|English translation:W Bush|
Yes, Dubya is Bush's nickname (from George W Bush) - "double you".
As for human Californias that is a bit harder to explain...they seem to be saying that these political leaders are human versions of California - a state of America where things that are hard to believe happen, where people live the dream, where Hollywood has become reality...
