President Bush Unconcerned With “Brokeback”

President Bush Unconcerned With "Brokeback"

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. Peter Wallsten for the LA Times.
