The Dauphin and the Dude

| 1 Comment

Via the Windy City Lefty, we read of Bush and his obsession with the Big Lebowski. Or something. Sort of weird. I guess when your mind is as empty as the Dauphin's pea brain is, then little things like how the rug really ties a room together mean a lot to you.

WaPo: Bush Weaves Rug Story Into Many an Occasion
Nothing says power like the Oval Office. The paintings of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. The bust of Dwight D. Eisenhower. The desk used by both Roosevelts.

And then there's the rug. Don't forget the rug. President Bush never does.

For whatever reason, Bush seems fixated on his rug. Virtually all visitors to the Oval Office find him regaling them about how it was chosen and what it represents.

Turns out, he always says, the first decision any president makes is what carpet he wants in his office. As a take-charge leader, he then explains, he of course made a command decision -- he delegated the decision to Laura Bush, who chose a yellow sunbeam design.

Elizabeth Vargas, the ABC News anchor, was the latest to get the treatment. She went by last week to interview Bush before his trip to Afghanistan, India and Pakistan. Sure enough, she wasn't in the room but a minute or two before he started telling her about the carpet.

Still, in a battle of wits between the Dude and Dauphin, my money is on the Dude.
