Remember how Dick Cheney very charitably forgave Harry Whittington, the old man who had the audacity to get hit by Dick Cheney’s birdshot?
Well, Aravosis catches Bush doing Cheney one better: Bush has the kindness to forgive Gore for winning the the 2000 election.
Bush forgives Gore for Bush stealing the 2000 election. What a mensch. From the NYT:
Mr.Bush made no comment when the Nobel was announced, and today, the twostood silently, and a bit awkwardly, during the photo opportunity.
Butthe president did personally telephone Mr. Gore to extend theinvitation, and the White House changed the date of the event so Mr.Gore could attend. Mr. Bushâ€™s press secretary, Dana Perino, toldreporters the president is willing to let bygones be bygones.
â€œThis president does not harbor any resentments,â€ she said. â€œHe never has.â€
No word on whether Bush also forgives Gore for believing the earth is round, and other crazy scientific theories.
