flintsoneAs Baghdad burns, the Buffoon in Chief has himself some fun:

At ‘œThe Gaggle,’ Newsweek reporter Holly Bailey writes that the president clambered into the driver’™s seat of Caterpillar’™s giant D10 tractor. ‘œI would suggest moving back’¦I’™m about to crank this sucker up,’ she reports him saying.

But as White House staff started to move the press corps back, the situation became more chaotic. Bailey writes that ‘œthe tractor lurched forward’ and White House staff ‘œtoo were forced to scramble for safety. ‘œGet out of the way!’ a news photographer yelled. ‘œI think he might run us over!’”

Bush chuckled about the incident, and referenced driving the tractor during his speech, saying ‘œI’™m impressed by a culture of excellence and accomplishment that is the spirit of Caterpillar. I also appreciate the chance to drive a D10. If you’™ve never driven a D10 ‘” (laughter) ‘” it’™s a cool experience. (Laughter),’ according to the White House website.

Bailey looked less fondly upon Bush’™s test drive of the D-10. ‘œYeah, almost as much fun as seeing your life flash before your eyes,’ she wrote in response to the president’™s remark about his ‘œcool experience.’

If he did in fact run someone over, could we finally impeach him for manslaughter?
