Blogger Restless snapped a photo of the current window display at Rothman's, the venerable men's store on Union Square. During the election, Rothman's parodied Sarah Palin, and after Obama won, they slapped a big "Yes We Can" on their window, so it's not completely unlikely to think that mannequin in the trash represents a certain almost-former president. Then again, if he were supposed to be Bush, wouldn't he be wearing pants?
