ONE FOR THE FAMILY. So, this week, we read this about our commander in chief:
He loves to cuss, gets a jolly when a mountain biker wipes out trying to keep up with him, and now we're learning that the first frat boy loves flatulence jokes. A top insider let that slip when explaining why President Bush is paranoid around women, always worried about his behavior. But he's still a funny, earthy guy who, for example, can't get enough of fart jokes. He's also known to cut a few for laughs, especially when greeting new young aides, but forget about getting people to gas about that.
And we recall that, in accepting his party's nomination back in 2000, he read from his teleprompter the following sentiment:
I know the presidency is an office that turns pride into prayer.
Here�s the whole speech. In our new TAPPED home game, match the rhetorical bells and whistles therein with the subsequent Bush administration debacle of your choosing. Begin with Hurricane Katrina. Hours of family fun!
