Bush Bounced By Bicycle
Proof positive that either the President of the United States should stick to Road Cycling, or that his Mountain Bike is a secret Democrat.
We already knew that John Kerry's Bike is a Republican so it was only a matter of time before a Liberal was discovered among the Presidential Recreational Entourage.
President Bush suffered cuts and bruises early Saturday afternoon when he fell while mountain biking on his ranch, White House spokesman Trent Duffy said.
Bush was on the 16th mile of a 17-mile ride when he fell, Duffy said. He was riding with a military aide, members of the Secret Service and his personal physician, Dr. Richard Tubb.
"He had minor abrasions and scratches on his chin, upper lip, nose, right hand and both knees," Duffy said. "Dr. Tubb, who was with him, cleaned his scratches, said he was fine. The Secret Service offered to drive him back to the house. He declined and finished his ride."
Bush was wearing his bike helmet and a mouth guard when the mishap occurred. Duffy said he didn't know exactly how the accident happened.
"It's been raining a lot and the topsoil is loose," the spokesman said. "You know this president. He likes to go all out. Suffice it to say he wasn't whistling show tunes.""
When told about Bush's mishap, Kerry said, "I hope he's OK. I didn't know the president rode a bike."
I find it very hard to believe that Kerry had no clue that the President was not a bicyclist.
Memo to Mr. Kerry:
