Highlights from National Petrochemical and Refiners Association Convention

Bush I, the Daddy of the Shrub stepped up to speak at this very appropriate forum. In front of a throng of conventioneers whose stock options are ringing like cash registers because of record oil industry profits, partly spurred by the LACK of adequate refining capacity, GHW Bush defended his son. And what a bunch of whining it is!
The former president appeared to fight back tears as he complained about media coverage of the younger Bush that he called "something short of fair and balanced."

"It hurts an awful lot more when it's your son that is being criticized than when they used to get all over my case," said Bush, who has often complained about media coverage of both Bush presidencies.The big yahoo whines on Yahoo news
I'm speechless at imagining this scene. I truly can make no more comment.
