I usually like to report real news, but I found this piece in the Boston Herald on Bush’s love of flatulence humor to be kind of telling, and thus worth sharing. Here’s a clip:

…U.S. New & World Reports’ Paul Bedard says our commander in chief “loves flatulence jokes . . . can’t get enough of fart jokes. He’s also known to cut a few for laughs, especially when greeting new young aides.”

In an interview yesterday, Bedard, who writes “Washington Whispers” for the weekly newsmagazine, also said he’s heard about Bush’s full-salute “Austin Greeting.” That’s when new aides come in for their “meet and greet.”

“Word is,” says Bedard, “he likes to gas a couple, and then bring the aide in and see what the kid’s face looks like.”

Naturally, the aide can’t accuse the President or grimace or hold his nose. This dilemma apparently drives the presidential funny bone wild…

The blatant disregard for others demonstrated here reminds me of that time when candidate Bush was caught on tape wiping his glasses on the sweater of one of David Letterman’s unaware producers.

All hail the Fratboy-in-Chief. (One wonders if he’s ever made the cabinet members convene over a soggy biscuit.)

    My sense is that Condie would welcome a soggy biscuit.

    Maybe we could organize a campaign where we all send boxed farts to the White House, seeing as how he likes it so much.

    It’s a pity his foreign policy doesn’t show the same foresight and planning.

    I believe in the early 1980’s I remember them selling canned farts at Spencer’s Gifts. I haven’t seem them since. It seems that there’d be a market though.

    I’ve read that bin Laden loves to hold a stick under his robe when he’s meeting with new followers, so that it looks like he’s got a boner. Apparently he laughs his ass off.
