Bush hits cop

Holy crap, this man is an embarrassment. Note the last line of the article. Is it my imagination, or is there a tone of distinct mockery there?

Bush crashes into cop

Gleneagles - United States President George W Bush collided with a local police officer during a bike ride on the grounds of the Gleneagles golf resort while attending a meeting of world leaders, the White House said on Wednesday.

Bush had scrapes on his hands and arms and the police officer was taken to a local hospital, said White House spokesperson Scott McClellan.

It was raining lightly at the time.

The extent of the policeman's injuries were not known, but he might have an ankle injury, he said.

The fall did not affect the president's schedule.

He went ahead with a dinner hosted by Queen Elizabeth at the annual G8 economic summit, said McClellan.

The officer, who was on a security detail, was a member of the Strathclyde police department, said McClellan.

Bush has fallen from his bike before.

Mrs. Ignatz says: "Maybe he should get another DWI - Driving While Idiotic."
