Snark of the Week: Dubya made a funny? Again?OR,
Dubya has a nice little chat with Brit Hume about his iPod Shuffle:
Bush: Beach Boys, Beatles, let's see, Alan Jackson, Alan Jackson, Alejandro, Alison Krauss, the Angels, the Archies, Aretha Franklin, the Beatles, Dan McLean. Remember him?(Link, Faux iPod One image: Whitehouse.org)
Hume: Don McLean.
Bush: I mean, Don McLean.
Hume: Does "American Pie," right?
Bush: Great song.
Hume: Yes, yes, great song.
Unidentified male: ... which ones do you play?
Bush: All of these. I put it on shuffle. Dwight Yoakam. I've got the Shuffle, the, what is it called? The little.
Bush: It looks like.
Hume: The Shuffle. That is the name of one of the models.
Bush: Yes, the Shuffle.
Hume: Called the Shuffle.
Bush: Lightweight, and crank it on, and you shuffle the Shuffle.
Hume: So you -- it plays ...
Bush: Put it in my pocket, got the ear things on.
Hume: So it plays them in a random order.
Hume: So you don't know what you're going to going to get.
Hume: But you know --
Bush: And if you don't like it, you have got your little advance button. It's pretty high-tech stuff.
Hume: ... be good to have one of those at home, wouldn't it?
Hume: Yes, hit the button and whatever it is that's in your head -- gone.
Bush: ... it's a bad day, just say, get out of here.
Hume: Well, that probably is pretty ...
Bush: That works, too. (Laughter)
Hume: Yes, right.
Hit the button and whatever it is that's in El Presidente's head is gone? As opposed to what's in his head, now, luv? Painful, wasn't it? In fact the entire exchange should have called forth my maternal instincts; with me patting him on the head saying, "There, there, honey." "So what if all the smart kids laugh at you?" That is, of course, if I had any maternal instincts. As it was, I damn near wet myself.
