Last month there was a video clip circulating of former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush walking amidst the wreckage in Haiti and shaking hands with the survivors of the earthquake.
Clinton, of course, was totally in his element. Bush, on the other hand, looked more than a little uncomfortable walking through the slums surrounded by hundreds of wide-eyed desperate black people.
At one point in the clip Bush shakes hands with a Haitian guy and then nonchalantly wipes his paw on Clinton's shirt. I assume the guy Bush shook hands with had a sweaty palm and Bush wanted to wipe the guy's perspiration from his hand.
But on Clinton's shirt? Would you wipe your sweaty paw on a former president's shirt? Well, maybe on Clinton's shirt--but you know what I mean. It's a pretty indelicate thing to do.
This is not new for Bush. There is another video of him wiping his reading glasses on a female stage manager's skirt on David Letterman's show. No one made a big deal about it. Actually, compared to what Bush did to the country for the eight years he was in office, it was a trifle.
In fact, most commentators in the mainstream media sloughed if off as just one more stupid Bush faux pas. You know what a dumb ass old George is" hah, hah, hah!
