“didnt get too much traction in the media either.”
What planet were you living on in those days, because on THIS PLANET, Bush calling a reporter an asshole on an open mic was the lead story FOR DAYS....
“Bush calling a reporter an asshole on an open mic was the lead story FOR DAYS....”
Was this the Bush/Cheney open mic moment? I believe it was “first class asshole.” I also remember the issue being about how children would react to the fact that a leader used this type of language.
and from that, a new word- Clymer, was born!
I still use that word when I want to call someone an a-hole.
“That’s Adam Clymer, Major League Arshhole from the New York Times”.
“Yeah, big time.”
Hell, I was PROUD of MY President when he said that.
