Bush’s Humor

John Podhoretz appreciates Bush’s humor during the press conference. I actually believe that some good writing is in order on this issue (Podhoretz is fine, but it’s just a start) because Bush does have a great sense of humor. I have seen it in person. And I think it means something more than what is ordinarily understood by such matters. His kind of wit, it seems to me is to be found among a certain kind of person, with a very fine and special character (e.g., Lincoln, Churchill, Coolidge). Where did you study all this goodly speech? Asks Ketherina of Petruchio. He replies: It is extempore, from my mother wit.
