Representation Through Humiliation

Skid. Crash. Thud. Ouch.

President Bush collided with a local police officer and fell during a bike ride on the grounds of the Gleneagles golf resort while attending a meeting of world leaders Wednesday.

Bush suffered scrapes on his hands and arms that required bandages by the White House physician, said White House spokesman Scott McClellan.

The police officer was taken to a local hospital as a precaution, McClellan said. Police said the officer suffered a "very minor" ankle injury.

It was raining lightly at the time.

Damn straight it was raining! The President of the United States of America just collided with an officer of the law causing him to go to the hospital! Even if it wasn't really raining, it would still be raining!

The officer was on a security detail. He is a member of the police department of Strathclyde, a nearby town, McClellan said.

Bush appears to have relived his teenage years on a bicycle. Crashing into things...disrespecting polie officers...

The president was concerned about the officer's condition, and talked with him for some time after the collision, McClellan said.
A fate worse than death! The poor guy had to talk to George W. Bush for extended periods of time after just being abused on a bicycle by the same man!
