Open Thread

Risking beating a dead horse on the Kerry is too rich theme.... no one does a take down better than Digby:

President Bush and former President George Bush ride their golf cart to the first hole at the Cape Arundel Golf Course ["said to be" $150,000 initially and $8500.00 per year] in Kennebunkport, Maine.

Father and son left their family's coastal compound [valued at 8 million] just after dawn, taking a mini-motorcade to nearby Cape Arundel Golf Club, where they have been golfing for years. The first President Bush drove their golf cart up to the first tee, the current president riding shotgun with his feet up on the dash. "Good morning, everybody!" he said to a group of reporters.

...The president and his father climbed into the Fidelity II power boat [$135,000] later and fished the coastline, stopping to cast for about 10 minutes before moving on to another spot. Wearing fashionable, blue-tinted shades [$480.00], the son caught what appeared to be a foot-long striper, and gently placed it back in the water.

Yes, indeedy. GW is just one of the guys.
