Editor's Note: Bush Apologizes
Thursday, June 15, 2006
Today, President Bush made fun of a reporter at a news conference in the Rose Garden for leaving his "shades" on. It was later discovered that the reporter in question was legally blind. President Bush called the reporter and apologized.
Now, it's too late for me to start accusing the President of making mistakes, but if he had asked me, I'd have told him not to apologize. One of the perks of being the "Leader of the Free World" is that you can tell anyone anything you want. If you want to call the President of Russia Poot Poot, that's your prerogative. Putin is just lucky that Bush didn’t call him "Faggity MacFagfag".
In fact, if I had my way, the President would be making fun of a minority or disabled person every day of the week. I would even have him stand on someone who he was making fun of. This is America and it is important to remember that the majority rules. That's a lesson in democracy.
Coincidentally, you may have noticed that I had to put "Leader of the Free World" in quotation marks. Before the Clinton administration, you didn't need to put "Leader of the Free World" in quotation marks. This is where political correctness has taken us. Just think about that for a minute.
