Could it be any more embarrassing to have to admit this man is our president? Frat Boy Bush strikes again. Now that he's worked up his chops fondling the first female chancellor of Germany and winking at the Queen of England he decided to horn in on the "little lady" conductor.
JoAnn Falletta was doing what a conductor should — concentrating on the orchestra in front of her. No wonder it took her a few seconds on Sunday to realize someone behind her was motioning for a try. President BushCould he be any more inappropriate and condescending than this? Don't answer that, I don't really want to know but everybody who thinks he's either (a) totally cracking up or (b) drinking again, please raise your hands.
"Smiling at me kind of devilishly," Falletta said.
She gave him her baton and stepped aside.
Gesturing exuberantly, the president led the orchestra during part of its performance of "Stars and Stripes Forever."
...That was the music played for Bush's exit after his speech at a ceremony commemorating the founding 400 years ago of Jamestown, America's first permanent English settlement.
Just before the music ended, Bush turned to Falletta, who stood on a step below him, kissed the top of her head and left without saying a word.
