Poor, Poor Pitiful Bush

From Last week, Marques Harper of the Austin American- Statesman wrote a short piece about the president's sartorial style on his Texas ranch, where Bush is spending a two-week vacation. The article was reprinted Tuesday in a Waco, Tex., paper, and the leader of the free world was not pleased. Harper received a phone call that morning from White House deputy press secretary Dana Perino, who, Harper told friends, said the president read the article and was unhappy about the way he was portrayed.

Here's what Harper wrote:

"The president has two distinct looks when he's in Texas: the ranch-hand man and the crisp appearance of a ranch owner. In recent months, with his sliding popularity, he's opted to look more like 'Walker, Texas Ranger' than a sweaty, tough ranch hand."

Okay, let me get this straight. Being called a liar, a murderer, an incompetent, a draft dodger, a war criminal, the worst President ever, the Chimperor, etc, etc---this doesn't bug him. But let someone criticize the way he dresses, and they get a phone call about how unhappy King George is?

With all due respect, Mr. President, grow the fuck up.

King Hissy Fit strikes again. I've met toddlers who were better behaved. In fact, now that I think about, every toddler I've met has been better behaved.
