    The designer of the unofficial Bush site described it on Friday as a parody and said the governor is trying to limit what is written about him on the Internet.

    But Mr. Bush, a front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, had harsh words Friday for the site (www.gwbush.com), which offers mock interviews and policy initiatives on drugs and crime.

    "There's a lot of garbage in politics, and, obviously, this is a garbage man," said Mr. Bush.


    "We appreciate humor. We appreciate parody. George Bush is known for his sense of humor," said [then Bush campaign spokesman and long time family retainer Karen] Hughes. "But there's a difference between expressing opinion, poking fun and breaking the law."
