Mad Dogs and Englishmen- And Bush the Torturer in 104 Degree Heat Yesterday

Do you know how HOT it was here yesterday? In mid-afternoon? We were monitoring the temperatures and it was, around 2:00 pm ONE HUNDRED AND NINE DEGREES. I had thought about mowing the lawn some more yesterday but decided that somebody would have to be totally stupid to be out doing yard work or anything else in the afternoon. As it was, even after 7:00 pm, it was still hot but at least it had gone down by then past the 100 degree mark.

And everyone here knows how close Crawford is, and that it ain't that much different in temps. Well, guess who decided to have all his White House staffers go take a run .. in the middle of the afternoon... while Bush stayed in the A/C and cheered them on. Pfffftttt! And it wasn't like these staffers could WALK, they had to RUN... for THREE MILES.

As Jobsanger said, and I heartily agree.

Of course, Bush was not crazy enough to do the run himself. He cheered them on at the halfway mark, and then rode to the finish line in a pickup to shake hands with the finishers.

Now any true Texan knows it is insane to do a three-mile run in the 104 degree heat of an August day in Texas. Even though Bush was born in Connecticut, I would have thought he'd lived in Texas long enough to know better. But evidently to him, this kind of life-threatening behavior is a show of manliness.

I already know Bush is an idiot. and I know he's cruel because, despite what he *says*, he has sanctioned torture.  But what the heck is wrong with his staffers that THEY would go out running in this kind of heat just so they could have a t-shirt? Course there has to be something wrong with them to even want to WORK for Bush in the first place, so maybe that's a silly question.
