This is no way to monitor a hurricane as President.

I’m not sure where this pic is from. I got it in an email.

You need to take the ‘All Hat And No Cattle’ Bush the Lesser approach.

It was Aug. 29, McCain’s 69th birthday, and on the tarmac, Bush presented his old political rival with a cake. The two posed, holding the cake up for cameras, and within seconds, went their separate ways. The cake, melting in the 110-degree Arizona heat, was left behind, uneaten.

Here a fellow named George W. Bush is having a delightful time playing a guitar given to him by country singer Mark Wills after a visit to Naval Base Coronado in sunny southern California. It’s fun to be president.

So you see Mr. President? That is how you monitor a hurricane. I know presidentializeing is hard work. You need to relax no matter what is happening.

So take a few tips from Bush The Lesser.

Relax pretend to play some guitar, and have some cake. Even if you don’t eat it.
