A mouthful of "shit" from Bush...

The video of George W. Bush talking with Tony Blair at the G8 summit lunch is horrific and sets a terrible example for our kids. Not for his use of the word "shit". Having heard Bush use the word "asshole" on an open mike during the 2000 election campaign when speaking to Cheney (himself a notable F-bomber) - no one is really surprised to discover that this "deeply religious" man is actually coarse and profane in private. (Only the very stupid have actually believed that he is a man of devout faith. Claiming to have been "born again" was simply the veneer devised to explain away his 40 years as a wastrel...)

No - I am disgusted that he would speak while chewing food - and that he chews with his mouth wide open.

That is just such a bad example to set kids. I seem to recall that we impeached a President recently for setting a bad example to kids... I trust that Bill Bennett will be expressing his outrage about this - as soon as he can tear himself away from the craps table. And I'm sure Rush Limbaugh will have much to say too - once the Viagra wears off...
