A View From The Handbasket

I'm a tough guy, too. Heh heh.

While presenting Purple Hearts to wounded Iraq vets (some of them amputees) on New Year's Day, the President took a moment to commiserate with them:

Bush said that while on vacation at his ranch near Crawford, Texas, during which he cleared brush for exercise, he had received a two-inch scratch on his forehead "in combat with a cedar."

"I eventually won," he quipped, adding that he had dissuaded hospital staff from providing first aid for the cut.

He's such a comfort in times of trouble. Too bad he didn't have time to share stories of ditching the Air National Guard in the 70s. Good times.

On a tangent, how much brush could there possibly be at Bush's photo-op ranch if he spends so damn much time clearing it? Do they ship in fresh brush between his frequent vacations to give him something manly to do? I live in the suburbs, I don't understand this stuff.
