He loves to cuss, gets a jolly when a mountain biker wipes out trying to keep up with him, and now we're learning that the first frat boy loves flatulence jokes. A top insider let that slip when explaining why President Bush is paranoid around women, always worried about his behavior. But he's still a funny, earthy guy who, for example, can't get enough of fart jokes. He's also known to cut a few for laughs, especially when greeting new young aides, but forget about getting people to gas about that.
He wasn't the first president to violate the Clean Air Act, according to Capitol Hill Blue:
Harry Truman belched and farted in front of people, much to the consternation of wife Bess. Dwight Eisenhower may have been in the Army but he cussed like a sailor. John F. Kennedy would leer at young women and make comments about their attributes. He was, according to historians, a breast man.
Lyndon Johnson scratched his crotch at Cabinet meetings and in front of female White House staff members. Richard Nixon, as the Oval Office tapes showed, cussed a blue streak.
Jimmy Carter, on the other hand, may have been the last President too tight-assed to do anything untoward while in office ...
My guess is that no president could clear a room like William Howard Taft, who grew in office to 340 pounds.
I hope the press will get to the bottom of this.
Do I smell a Presidential shart-safe endorsement in the works?
"I travel a lot. And with a lot of people, some of whom I barely know. While I can trust the Secret Service not to tell the world about my pornographic Yu-Gi-Oh card collection, I'm not so sure about some of my cabinet.
"Thats why I use the Shart Safe ... "
I think it's important to point out that shart is a regional term. In Austin it's called "Gamble and Lose."
Al Gore kept his in a lockbox.
Must have been a slow news day.
Somehow I don't think this is the only reason Bush is paranoid around women.
and the purpose of knowing this is?
