Bush runs down a cop and falls off his bike (again) 

Well, this time, it was raining (unlike the last time, when they lied and said it was, back).

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.

But still, isn't it pretty hard to run into a cop on your bike, even in the rain?

Scotch whiskey at the nineteenth hole? Heavy tranks before dinner with the Queen?

UPDATE Oh,and [cough] President Bush? Happy Birthday.

UPDATE Scott "Sucka MC" McClellan says Bush was going at a "pretty good speed" when he crashed.

Not too smart in the rain, eh?

Kinda like a metaphor in miniature for the whole Bush presidency, isn't it? Bush acts out his risk-taking behavior thing, pushing too hard as usual, nobody bothers to talk him out of it anymore because he's too stubborn to listen, somebody innocent gets hurt, and Bush would look like an idiot if all his enablers didn't immediately conspire to minimize the episode. Beyond disgusting. Good thing He was wearing a helmet; we wouldn't want him to suffer any more brain damage....
