As his presidency winds down, the ongoing saga of an erratic president goes on and on. This week, while waiting on the steps of the White House for John McCain to appear, Bush broke into an impomptu display of tap-dancing, throwing his arms above in order to maintain balance. On Saturday night, Bush donned a cowboy hat, surrounded himself with what he called the Busharoos, and crooned the tune of “Green, Green, Grass Of Home” which expressed his desire for a return to the beloved home of Texas. In a take off on a Johnny Cash hit, he sang, “As I step down from the plane and there is my mama and my papa, down the lane. I look and here comes Barney, heart of gold and breath like honey…That old White House is behind me. I am once again caefree, don’t have a worry ’bout a crisis in Pyongyang.’ Down I lane I look, Dick Cheney is strolling with documents he’d been withholding, it’s good to touch the brown, brown grass of home,”
It’s good to know a man responsible for 4,000 dead American soldiers in Iraq and over a 100,000 Iraqis has a song in his heart about dear old Texas. I guess his tap dance is a mite bit better than his foreign policy dance of death.
