Life Imitates Art

From the New York Times:

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.

It would be really easy to take a swipe at Bush as Klutz-in-Chief, but that would be wrong.

But it does remind me of something. The president having a bicycle accident is the opening teaser in the pilot episode of The West Wing. In that case, President Bartlet is pissed off that one of his senior advisors did something stupid. Could it be that our president was pissed off at one of his senior aides for doing something stupid and took it out on the road? Nah…
