It’s Bush’s entourage, after all.

You just got excited when you saw the 15 sniffer dogs, didn't you?


Wait. That's not you. My bad.

I believe this is from the British variant of Reuter's. Also note Armoured.

And unless they're inanimate objects, aids is spelled with an "e" (aides).

Then again, considering the CiC at the time, "aids" is probably the right term. Guessing some etch-a-sketches, maybe some PSP's with a form of modern pong.

They went to Regents University, they only got 80% of their credentials.

Note how Jayhawk stopped posting once the Bush numbers went in.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

He didn't care. He's enjoying the furore his "innocent" post started. I'm surprised he can type effectively at all with all the saran wrap he must cover everything in to protect it from the astroglide and jism buildup. Then again, maybe he doesn't.

Hope nobody who met the guy ever shook his hand.
