Join former United States Senate Pages Dylan and Ethan Ris as they bring you the dish on not just the presidential race but all the exciting triumphs and disgraces inside, outside, and below the Beltway!
He’s An Easy Rider! Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln are remembered as some of our greatest presidents, but they, too, had flaws. Namely, even their most loyal biographers will concede that none of them — even in times of war — were members of a motorcycle gang.
But that wussy tradition is finally broken because President Bush (never a man bound by the philosophies of his predecessors) has inhaled from the tailpipe of leadership and become an honorary member of Rolling Thunder! This means the next time you walk past The White House and hear loud revving noises, you shouldn't automatically assume that it's Dick Cheney's diesel-powered pacemaker. It could very well be the President testing out a new chopper and preparing for his post-executive life attending leather conventions and working security for The Rolling Stones.
Now critics will say that this is simply too little, too late for Bush, who probably didn’t know a Harley from a Toyota Prius up until now. But give the man credit for joining a community organization.
No, it isn't quite Harry Truman's coronation as "Honorary Grand Master" in Freemason society or James K. Polk's "OT III: Wall of Fire" certification in Scientology, but it sounds a hell of a lot more fun than that Eurotrash club Al Gore recently joined!
