Caption contest winner

Forget the jokes. Stranger-than-fiction news:
Bush knuckled off a couple of lobs, but defending gold medalists Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh gave the chief executive some pointers. Then after a good play, in the tradition of female volleyballers, May-Treanor turned, bent over slightly and offered her bikinied rear-end for the 43rd president to slap.
"Mr. President," she said, "want to?"
Want to has nothing to do with it in public life.
Holy kamoley! I'd seen the photo and thought there must be some explanation, but didn't realize the girl was actually offering her Olympian butt for a presidential slap!

President Bush deserves a gold medal for restraint. If she'd have posed like that for any other man and said, "Want to?" . . . I mean, never mind what I might have done, can you imagine what Bill Clinton would have done? You'd have needed a crowbar to pry him off that poor girl.

UPDATE: Welcome Instapundit readers. Hmmm. Perhaps a forensic psychologist might speculate on how the president could have refused such an offer.


  1. Wouldn't you love to see a transcript of his mind's conversation in the 3 or 4 seconds following her offer?

  2. A young Laura Bush was actually better looking. GWB has had it better than most men.

    Bill Clinton, on the other hand, has had many women, but none of them attractive.

  3. Just imagine if that offer had been made to Bill Clinton.

  4. The sweet thing about GDubya is that he plays along and respectfully. That reminds me of the year I watched him greet a bunch of guys who had just graduated one of the military academies. Those guys high-fived, chest-bumped, butt-bumped the commander in chief, and he went along with it with a huge grin. The man is a marvelous, marvelous man. Our Olympians no doubt respect his fatherly attitude to them, on full display in all the pix.

    You can bet your butt that the Ahmadinejad, the Saudis, and all the other nutty Muslims must be gnashing their teeth with Rosey Palmer while watching these pix.

  5. I love this president. He's human and he's strong.

  6. Georgia must love GWB today. I am so disgusted.

    ...and the band played on.

    McCain at least is saying the right things, but our allies have perhaps days left.

  7. Gosh, that's one classy broad. Way to handle meeting the President while standing on the world stage.

  8. Bush spent a good amount of time, before the beginning of the opening ceremonies, having a little chat in the bleachers with Mr. Putin. I'm fairly sure he's on top of the Georgia situation.

  9. Dude, damn right I woulda slapped that ass!

    But that's why he's the President, and I'm not :)

  10. *insert John Edwards joke here*

  11. She is clearly a double agent working for Barack Obama. It was a set-up.
