The buzz about just what President George W. Bush was up to by making a show (song-and-dance routine?) of waiting at the front of the White House for John McCain still seems to have the media going. The nicest image capture I have seen comes courtesy of Michael Shaw, who has a "Reading the Pictures" blog on The Huffington Post. He almost (but not quite) homed in on the most appropriate text for the occasion:
OOOOOOOOOOO! I LOVE TO DANCE THE LITTLE SIDESTEP
NOW THEY SEE ME, NOW THEY DON'T
I'VE COME AND GONE . . .
AND OOOOOOOOOOO! I LOVE TO SWEEP AROUND A WIDESTEP
CUT A LITTLE SWATH AND LEAD THE PEOPLE ON
Those unfamiliar with the world of musical comedy might not recognize these as the words of another Texas governor, who gets to strut his stuff in a song called "The Sidestep" in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Personally, I find the connection irresistible; it is the closest thing to truth-in-advertising to have come out of the White House in the entirety of the current Administration!
