Bush in Free Fall (Literally)

|

Forget the prez's poll numbers, which are going down faster than Monica Lewinsky on a White House pizza run.

To see George W. Bush in a literal–albeit animated–free fall, go here (if the chief exec gets caught, nudge him with your cursor). Prepare to spend the rest of the day at this site.

Andrew Jackson may have had to put up with rumors that his pipe-smoking wife was a bigamist, Abe Lincoln was routinely compared to a baboon, and Bill Clinton was accused of serial killing and far worse (e.g., cheating at golf).

But somehow this Bush bit–in the spirit of full disclosure, sent to me by a college friend who still lives with his parents, whose time is arguably less valuable than yours, oh gentle, anonymous readers–seems even more punishing and dismissive than all the calumnies of the past.

  1. What Bush bit?

  2. “What Bush bit?”

    Click the “here” link in the second paragraph.

  3. SR,
    That’s somehow historically punishing and dismissive? I guess like a cartoon Clinton whose nose grows? I was looking for some sort of “bit” as in information, news, press conference quote, recently disclosed private quote, etc. Cartoon Bush in free fall made me grin, but WTF?

    Are you sure Nick didn’t leave out a link?

    Nick?

  4. Okay…you can make him auto-fellate himself. Sorry I was such a curmudgeon before.

  5. OK, I must admit I am amused. If I put it under favorites I might not ever get any work done! Ahh, discipline. I must have discipline.

  6. This is a knock-off of Tetka, the Amazing Falling Woman.

  7. “SR, That’s somehow historically punishing and dismissive?”

    What are you griping at me for? I’m not the one who called it that. I was just telling you which link Gillespie was referring to.

  8. Prepare to spend the rest of the day at this site.

    Huh? That got old in less than a minute. I can’t tell you how disappointing it is to find out how easily you can be amused Nick.

  9. “which are going down faster than Monica Lewinsky on a White House pizza run.”

    mercy.

    oh my.

  10. When watching him fall gets old, click and hold on a body part and make him do the funky chicken and go for gymnastics gold. This is a good time to have George Clinton playing.

  11. Very true to life. The guy takes falls that would have broken anyone else’s political back, yet he just keeps blithely moving along. Somewhat depressing, really.

  12. Yeah, I see him fall. But when does he gets splattered all over the pavement? I want to see blood and guts.

    (Plus a few people puking their guts out, as in an Anita Blake novel)

  15. Looks like someone’ll be getting a visit from the Secret Service…

  16. ah, crimethink. They promise a fall. Unless there is a floor that he meets, he is not falling, he is just flying…

    It reminds me of a conundrum “If there was no floor we’d just fall and keep falling” “If there was no floor, where would we fall?”

    It is not as deep as that of the falling tree in the forest, but still, a good one.

    If a Bush falls in the forest and no one sees it, does it make a speech?

  17. so…who wants to bet on which lib’ll be the first to feature in a “retort” copy of this? oo, and how long till it shows up?

  18. Actually, we are ALL falling – perpetually – in orbit around the Sun.

  19. If there were no floor, one would fall to the center of mass of Earth, and probably a bit beyond due to the incredible amount of momentum gained on the way down. Eventually, one would come to a stop, and start falling back towards the center of mass, and keep going back and forth until coming to rest at the center.

    Of course, there’s not much empty space to fall through down there.

  20. Heh. If you right-click on him it brings up a contextual menu and freezes him in place.

    It’s also interesting to twirl him around. It’s hard to tell because he’s moving so fast, but there’s definitely something fleshy between his jacket and his pants…

    In other words, I have too much time on my hands.

  21. Not to discount this great service to our country, but it really needs sound effects…

  22. How can you talk about presidents falling down and not even mention Jerry Ford?

  23. plodder:

    The center of the earth is a floor. We postulate no floor at all. In which case it is impossible to fall. You only fly interminably in one direction….
