Now He's Blaming His Shirtmaker
Bush Blames Poorly Made Shirt for Bulge
"I guess the assumption was that if I were straying off course they would ... kind of like a hunting dog, they would punch a buzzer and I would jerk back into place," Bush said. "That's just absurd."Hmmmm... so that's how they used it. I thought it was a secret microphone.
Which brings up an interesting question....
Who makes his shirts? Does he buy the cheapest, most ill-fitting shirts he can find on the "internets" from Chinese sweatshops?
Is he slamming American Union labor for manufacturing a poor product?
Why on earth would he wear a badly fitting shirt to the most important event of his life? It's not like he rolled out of bed, sniffed the pits, and decided it was good enough for TV.
Assuming he was just wearing the Man-ssiere (or the Bro) [ed. people, if you don't understand, just ask a Seinfeld fan], he should tell us. Or if it was a backbrace, he might get a few sympathy votes. A bullet-proof vest would play into the terror fearer vote.
But a shirt so bad you can see how bad it is through a jacket? Oh, pulleeze!
I think we should urge Congress to investigate. Clearly he's lying to the public. For all we know he could be hiding a blue dress back there.
