George W. Bush Appears

Kind of an eventful day.  I got to listen to a campaign speech from Republican hopeful George W. Bush speak today in Decorah.

As the crowd thinned out, I stuck around for a few minutes to shake his hand.  It was an odd experience, as he approached me in a very intimately robotic way.  He seemed so eager and his eyes sort of sparked with neediness.  Like a kid just wanting to be liked by everyone.  While in mid-shake, he thanked me for coming and said “I hope that you vote for me.”

Despite what his biography claims, he’s actually not very tall.
