Thanks a lot for the trinket, but getcher goddammed paw off my butt, sailor boy.
Welcome the second installment of It's Official™, photos taken from the official White House website. The woman's name is Angela An. She is receiving a medal for volunteer service.
At this ceremony, Bush gave a little speech, and the White House website has this excerpt.
"Each of you is part of a legacy of service that harkens back to our country's earliest days. When Martha Washington -- the husband [sic] of the first George W. -- (laughter) -- organized sick wards for wounded soldiers and made visits to battlefields to boost the morale of the troops, she volunteered for a cause bigger than herself."
Yes, the White House doesn't even pretend anymore. It just prints verbatim his mangling of the speeches written for him and puts in the [sic] to remind anyone unclear on the concept that they know he's a fuck-up, even if he doesn't realize it at the moment.
This ceremony was last week. I went back to take a look and this picture had been removed. I can't imagine why.
