A Study In Contrasting Styles

The Big Guy took a tumble today, as he is wont to do when peddling along.

Bush falls off bike after colliding with officer
President suffers minor scrapes in incident at G-8 summit
GLENEAGLES, Scotland – President Bush collided with a local police officer and fell during a bike ride on the grounds of the Gleneagles golf resort while attending a meeting of world leaders Wednesday…
The president was concerned about the officer’s condition and talked with him for some time after the collision, McClellan said. The president also asked White House physician Richard Tubb to monitor the officer’s condition at the hospital*.

Remember now, the other guy who wanted that job tended to be a bit ‘klutzy’, too. But I don’t recall him being gracious…or concerned.

When Sen. John F. Kerry fell – or was toppled by a Secret Service agent – from his perch on a snowboard recently, the would-be president clarified events with rare grace:
I don’t fall down,” he said. “That son-of-a-bitch ran into me*.” Or “knocked me over,” depending on which version you read.

Two things to take away from this. First, Red State types look wiser every day. Secondly, it proves that old childhood adage:
Weasels Wobble But They Don’t Fall Down.
*all emphasis (and quiet snickering) mine.

    Those liberal-types are SO refined 😛 Thanks for the welcome- nice blog. Found you through Nightfly, found through Dawn, through Amy, Carl, and Nancy… gonna go read your other post.

    Hi Faith! We’ve got to figure out a way to get ‘Fly’s computer up and running again…

  3. Again, we’re delighted to have you aboard, Faith!
    And they’re too refined, I think, to handle what is happening in the world today. (While it’s all too easy to crack on those who serve you.) Thank God for Red States.

    Agreed, Mr. B, thought getting the War Horse up and running would involve a seance. In the meantime, I hope Homeland Security is keeping track of everything I’m doing at the library… including all the time wandering around the Dell site, compiling the innards of the new system.
    Come to the next study/dinner hour on the 12th and we can catch up.
