When TV is a little better than real life

In a plot point lifted directly from the pilot of The West Wing, President Bush fell off his mountain bike this weekend on a “grueling” bike ride around the Crawford ranch.

Unlike President Bartlett, President Bush probably wasn’t in that bike accident because he was upset about a fundamentalist Christian group threatening his granddaughter. And despite needing the Cuban-American vote for his re-election, Bush hasn’t been as sympathetic or admiring of Cuban refugees as our fictional president.

Perhaps most importantly, I doubt that President Bush ended his own episode by telling his staff to quit “thinking about our personal lives or thinking about keeping our jobs,” and get down to the business of running the country.

But he does have some pretty awesome scrapes on his face.
