Bush just made a worse photo-op than Dean
and no one's going to play it.

Has anyone seen the clip of Bush and the ribs? I just saw it on Keith Olbermann and Bush looked drunk and/or insane. An asshole for sure.

If this is the way Bush is going to conduct his campaign, the whores will simply have to just bury all his footage. It won't be easy, but I think they'll try.

8. he refused to answer any questions
he was in a diner in NM, he had his arm around the owner of the diner, he answered every question by asking if the reporter was going to order anything.

He was in full asshole mode, kept repeating stuff about how much money the reporters had and how they should help the economy by buying ribs.

Eventually the staff kicked all the reporters out, which was on tape. It really looked like Bush was running away.

Very damaging, imo, which is why Keith will be one of the few that will air it.

9. Olbermann was making fun of it
to his credit, he likened it to the Dean thing, and had a correspondent on, analyzing it as a similar kind of gaffe.

Unfortunately, he relayed a comment from NBC's WH correspondent saying it wasn't as bad as it looked. Which is the B.S. I think we're going to hear from the rest of the whores.

10. Take that image, and
imagine him saying in his faux texas drawl, "Are ya gonna buy some ribs? Because I'm gonna buy some ribs, I'm hungry". He said it three times, every time a reporter asked a question.

11. I saw it
the commentator said that the WH was going to have to remind them that he is involved in an election, he is the pResident and will have to ask questions. He acted like a typical asshole who had too much to drink.
