WHY NOT??? Shakespeare's "McBeth" gives us as good an insight as any into the excesses blind ambition will cause a man to committ. McBeth and McBush share many qualities: Ambition to have absolute power. Willingness to say or do anything to get power. A beautiful and calculating woman to set the dark forces in their diabolical motion...McBush/McBeth/McDeath...

That look not like the inhabitants of the earth?
You should be women, and yet your beards
Forbid me to interpret that you are.

My dark and deep desires!
