WASHINGTON - President Bush welcomed "dudes and dudesses" from the U.S. Winter Olympic team on Wednesday in a White House ceremony that included a most unusual prop — a signed football jersey from Donovan McNabb. About 190 Olympians and Paralympians from the Turin Games gathered on the sunny South Lawn for the traditional post-Olympic visit, where the president offered praise for athletes representing sports both traditional and hip. "We want to thank all the dudes of dudesses of the snowboarders who are here," Bush said.
Normally, I would think that anyone who uses the word "dudesses" is joking around, but this guy is such a nitwit that I can't imagine that he was kidding.
Such is the manner of this National disgrace in the White House. It truly makes me sad that we have such an ill-mannered boob in the same chair once occupied by Thomas Jefferson, Franklin Roosevelt and yes, even his father, whom I didn't always agree with, but at least had some dignity. Every day I ask myself how it happened that we elected this clown, and perhaps some day I will know. Until then, we are forced to suffer. Somehow, his 30% popularity rating seems high to me.
