Bluto in the White House

In the final scenes of Animal House, the film states that Bluto, the dim-witted, obnoxious, constantly drunk, probably mentally disabled frat boy, would later become Senator and the DVD later claims he becomes President. US News is reporting that life has imitated art:

Animal House in the West Wing

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.

It is a good thing that we elected him to "restore honor and dignity to the White House."

Comments

restore Honor ...

Heh. They were just joking.

I saw Letterman last night with Nancy Pelosi. At the end of their visit, Letterman said something about the loss of respect for America in the world and how hard it's going to be to fix the fine mess W and the stooges have gotten us in [my words]. Pelosi said,

"Well, they call what we have now Cowboy Diplomacy. But, I think that's really a disservice to Cowboys."

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Willie Nelson

said almost the same thing. When he was asked how he liked his Texan cowboy president he said he wasn't a Texan and he wasn't a cowboy. He said not to insult Texans and cowboys. It was out of the country, but I don't remember where. I never understood why he got a pass and The Dixie Chicks got crucified.

Go Pelosi!

I've often wondered if this has become a "broke-back" presidency...but that would probably be a disservice to the movie!

i'd hate to play devil's advocate

especially in defense of a troglodyte like preznit chimpy, but at the end of the day, no matter how civilized or educated they are, deep down i'm pretty sure that all men think that two things are funny: farts and monkeys.

it just fits his character better. i mean, can you imagine any other president doing the "pull my finger" gag on a new aide? (okay, maybe nixon, FDR and woodrow wilson...)

I must be weird then

I have never found monkeys or farting particularly funny.

quid pro quo?

To my non-conservative friends: let us not forget what appendage our previous president had aides "pulling."

All subjects lead to Monica

Whenever in doubt, the Republican response seems to be that Clinton had sex (or something close to it).

What I am talking about here is Bush's lack of civility and is that something we want in a president. I will admit that adultery is not a flattering trait for a president either. And apparently you admit that Bush does not possess the dignity required of a president since you avoided the point to attack Clinton.

A lack of civility,

regardless of the source, is not becoming of a president. Both Clinton and Bush display civility on occasion, and lack it on others. I believe that the presidency is not held with the same honor that our founding fathers, or the burgeoning nation in general, possessed.

From the history I've read,

there wasn't a whole heck of a lot of civility swirling around between political rivals in the early 1800's, which I'm assuming, would be the years of our burgeoning nation.

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Quick

Name a public occassion where Clinton ate with his mouth open, referred to a Prime Minister with "Yo", made fun of a legally blind reporter, or used the word "nuc-u-lar"

Most people will have ocassion to lose civility in private, but Bush has taken coarse public behavior to new heights.

All conservatives, recite the mantra ...

It's all Clinton's fault!!

It's all Clinton's fault!!

It's all Clinton's fault!!

It's all Clinton's fault!!

Yeah Leslie, it the Oz theory

"Don't pay attention to the man behind the curtain"

Everybody got their ruby slippers ready? Click them together and repeat after me....."Republicans go home....Republicans go home....Republicans go home!"

Come now, cant we have civilized debate?

Perhaps our Founding Fathers did not posess the civility we believe they have. It is then our wills that impose on them a altruistic or hero likewise, we hope they embodied everything we want them to.

I personally do not see whether it matters if I Fathers we're the most beign sincere kindest people. They fought a rebellion against a coutry who's empire and lust for power knew no bounds. But if we look up to these brave forefathers, then let their spirit, whether true or fictiuous, be as honorable as we aim to be today.

In my opinion neither Clinton or Bush or 2 have done anything to restore civility to our Highest Office in the land. I think if it wasnt for Clinton's sexual affairs, he would have actually brought respect back to the position.

That being said, perhaps one day our children will say different about them all.

Our children need to know that some people fought back, when others collaborated.

Winner.

That is pretty darn arrogant. Can't say as I've ever seen anyone do that to someone who wasn't their spouse or s.o. .. or mom.

I'd give my next paycheck if the producer had turned around and said,

dude. WTF?!

Or this

This is classy too

OK TarGator

I surrender.

If I ever needed convincing that George Bush is a total asshole and idiot, that need is gone. In these few comments, you've painted a picture of a Five Star Jerk worthy of nothing but ridicule and contempt. I would add pity to the list, but that won't come until the moron is in jail for crimes against humanity. Even then it'll be hard to feel sorry for the prick.

cowboy bush

cowboy bush must have been deprived of a cowboy outfit and cap pistol when he was a kid. Wonder if he kissed the horses but not the girls

Heh heh. Funny thing about that.

I'm terrified of horses!!!

I'm George W. Bush, and I approve this message.

Dubya obviously makes good use of his fingers

I thought he only used them for math.
