Wow, when you think it can't get any stupider. Bush strikes again

    Sorry, but the behind-the-back surprise shoulder rub is just an excruciating invasion of space....it's a sexist and patronizing power move.

    That, and the arm-around-the-back-too-far-so-the-hand-lands-under-the-breast move are grounds for justifiable homicide, in my legal opinion.

    21, Could be. Or what if a half hour earlier, she had come up from behind him and poked him in the sides, surprising the shit out of him? I mean, what if that is the relationship they have? Even if it does seem very unlikely, you never know. Don't you want context before deciding that he groped her against her wishes? About the worst I can say right now is that our president looks like an impetuous 3-year-old in video that seems to be appearing every few hours. It very well may have been the "sexist and patronizing power move." I know it's more likely. But I'd still rather have more context before calling the President a serial mollester.

    America hasn't had such poor representation in Europe since Clark Griswold won a free trip on Pig in a Poke.

    Is this move appropriate for a world leader?

    And remember the last time he was around representatives of so many countries....

  7. Go back and find the clip from when he was a candidate, and he was on Letterman and, when a young PA came out during a break, Fredo used the tail of her blazer to wipe his glasses. (This is reputed to be the moment when Letterman turned angry on him.) Same kind of thing. Entltled fratboy to whom nobody can say no. Never been held to account for 10 seconds in his life.
    Plus, if he'd ever tried this with Maggie Thatcher, she'd have broken his jaw.

    OK. Devil's advocate is over. That made me laugh.

    This doesn't come close to the top Bush boners of the year, like when he approached the worker in a wheelchair:

    "You look mighty comfortable."

    Or telling the German reporter (what is it with him and the Germans?) that the highlight of his presidency was "when I caught a 7.5 pound perch in my lake."

    For a man that just turned 60 years old, and has lived a life of privilege for well, six decades now, there seem to be way too many things that are just now occurring to him (and many others that haven't occurred to him at all yet.)

    I would say you can't live in your own fucking bubble world all your life, but Bush is proving me wrong.

    Intellectual curiosity -- get some. Fuck. :mad:
  12. Not being a fisherperson, is it permissable to call bullshit on that perch story?
    Do they get that big regularly?
