Dukes of a Hazard
There is almost nothing funnier on the Bush presser landscape than when Bush feels a need to explain something, some reference he's made, cleverly he thinks, and perceives a needed clarification.
At a White House press conference Thursday, Bush appeared to be already inhabiting his vacation mode, shedding the businesslike, sometimes grim demeanor he's had of late to slouch against the podium and be avuncular.Just 527 days before this jackass is gone.
He gamely joked and mugged with reporters, at one point raising two fists in a boxing stance to illustrate what not to do in a photo op with the president of Iran.
"You don't want the picture to be kind of, you know, duking it out, you know?" Bush said " 'OK, put up your dukes.' That's an old boxing expression."
