What’s With Bush and Male Beauty?

In a Fox News interview, George W. Bush said about Brit Hume, “In all due respect, you’ve got a beautiful face and everything.” The Toronto Globe reported that he said to Scott Reid, assistant to Canada’s Prime Minister, “Well, you got a pretty face. You got a pretty face. You’re a good-looking guy. Better looking than my Scott (then-Press Secretary Scott McClellan) anyway.” He said to NBC’s David Gregory, “you're looking beautiful today”. And this past Thursday during a Phoenix, Arizona stop where the Prez signed legislation to “protect the American people”, according to the Arizona Daily Star, Bush singled out Republican Candidate for Governor Len Munsil for his admiration. The Prez mistakenly called Munsil “Lee”, but no doubt he was too dazzled to think clearly. He said Munsil had impressed him as "an attractive man, a family man, an honest man." With all due respect, Brit Hume may be many things to many people, but gorgeous he isn’t. Still, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But why is Bush always commenting on the fact that he finds certain men extraordinarily attractive? Just asking. And there’s another question begging for an answer: While the Prez is running around signing bills to protect the American people, what is going to protect the American people from George W. Bush?
