In an LA Times story today, President Bush was reported as being "decidedly noncommital...even a bit nonplussed" as questions concerning "Brokeback Mountain" were fired at him from Kansas State University students. "I haven't seen [the film]," he said; "I'd be glad to talk about ranching, but I haven't seen the movie." This coming from a man known for his "macho rancher" image, regularly roaming around his Texas property in cowboy boots and blue jeans. The President was assured that, being a rancher himself, he is sure to love "Brokeback" if he gets around to seeing it. Whether he actually intends to do so is an entirely different story.
