President Bush Gives Up Golf: Now Only Concerned with Mental Handicap

According to Reuters, U.S. President George W. Bush has made a major sacrifice for those dead or wounded in Iraq.

He’s given up golf.

“I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the Commander-in-Chief playing golf,” Bush said in an interview with Yahoo and

“I feel I owe it to the families to be as — to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal,” he said.

President Bush, I applaud you. When you were faced with the reality of an increasingly unpopular war you still managed to maintain your heart of stone and head of brick and rather than do something like TAKING STEPS TO ENDING THE WAR IN IRAQ, you put down your golf clubs.

I can’t decide what word describes this better: boneheaded or assinine. I think I will settle for assheaded and be done with it.
