First Bush-Obama Meeting: Hard Feelings and Hand Sanitizer
As President Bush and President-elect Barack Obama prepare for their post-election meeting at the White House on Monday, memories of their first encounter linger.

.......................

Four years ago, Obama and other newly elected members of the Senate were invited to the White House for a breakfast meeting with Bush, who pulled the young Chicagoan aside.

"Obama!" Bush exclaimed, according to Obama's account of the meeting in his second memoir, "The Audacity of Hope." "Come here and meet Laura. Laura, you remember Obama. We saw him on TV during election night. Beautiful family. And that wife of yours -- that's one impressive lady."

The two men shook hands and then, according to Obama, Bush turned to an aide, "who squirted a big dollop of hand sanitizer in the president's hand."

Bush then offered some to Obama, who recalled: "Not wanting to seem unhygienic, I took a squirt."

8. Even Adrian Monk wouldn't whip out hand sanitizer immediately after shaking hands with someone,
would he? How gauche! Did this really take place?!

23. Yes he does.
Do you watch that show?
He immediately asks his assistant for a wipe. It's hilarious.

26. Hah! That reminds me of something that happened when I was a new pagan
Way back then I wore my bling proudly as a newbie would. We were heading to CMA (Council of Magical Arts) Samhain celebration and I went into a convenience store near the gathering and the person waiting on me looked like she was going to have a coronary. When I tried to hand her my money, she told me to put it on the counter. So, apparently, even paganism is catching. LOL

16. I'm surprised Bush didn't call him Admiral Adama
''it's funny, you look more like a Mexican on Battlestar Galactica, Adama."

Strange advice, to say the least.

19. The Final Insult
This post does not make me happy.
And I often respond to posts that DO make me happy.
Because, being HAPPY is a great thing.

I knew it.
We knew it.
Everybody knew it.
George W. Bush is a steaming, stinking piece of human waste.

"Obama!" Bush exclaimed, according to Obama's account of the meeting in his second memoir, "The Audacity of Hope." "Come here and meet Laura. Laura, you remember Obama. We saw him on TV during election night. Beautiful family. And that wife of yours -- that's one impressive lady."

Like that Cosby show, right Monkey?
Impressive wife, cute kids.
I'm not telling anyone anything they did not already know.

George W. Bush is the single greatest embarrassment this great country has ever produced, and unwittingly (and unwillingly) placed in an elected office.

And agent Mike?

Hang your head in shame, you low life prick(s).
This is YOUR guy, and may you rot in hell for that association.
