Our Hero!

Following Bush Senior’s criticism last week of the media’s “overt, unrelenting hostility and personal animosity” towards his son, President George W Bush has apparently paid out on a few journalists from behind the wheel of a massive Caterpillar D-10 tractor.

As the engine roared to life, White House staffers tried to steer the press corps to safety, but when the tractor lurched forward, they too were forced to scramble for safety. ... Watching the chaos below, Bush looked out the tractor’s window and laughed, steering the massive machine into the spot where most of the press corps had been positioned. The episode lasted about a minute, and Bush was still laughing when he pulled to a stop.

Mr Bush’s stunt with the tractor trumps for all time Jeff Kennett’s legendary shovel-wielding escapade in which he sprayed a gathered press gallery with dirt.

Gee, those guys are all class, aren’t they? And don’t the crowd love it?!!

“If you’ve never driven a D-10, it’s the coolest experience,” said the common man’s President, who it might be supposed has one on his ranch for “cool” joyrides. Oh, and for practical reasons, too, of course...
