When the world revolves around you, it's easy to mistake a person for a Kleenex

Shakespeare’s Sister posted a Reuters photo of George Bush's boorish behavior toward Chinese President Hu Jintao at their meeting the other day. It reminded me that Bush has never been what you'd call a people person, but it also reminded me of something else...

Something I thought I saw on the Letterman show during the 2000 campaign -- something so weird that I originally thought I had imagined it. It was George Bush latching onto a woman producer’s shirttail during a commercial break and using it to wipe his glasses. That couldn’t have really happened, could it? Presidential candidates don't do things like that, and if they did, it would be a big incident, wouldn't it? I must have imagined it in a fit of partisan pique.

Nope, it really happened. Here's the video.
