I appreciate that fact, Mr. President

I was reminded of my recent post that included, as part of its overlong title, "Why I'm glad Dubya didn't get into Texas Law School," when I read this paragraph in Chris Suellentrop's recent article in Slate entitled "The Right Rev. George W. Bush:  Among the worshippers at the president's traveling revival show":

Bush says a CEO in the audience has an interesting idea to share. The man doesn't say anything. "Flex time," Bush says. "I'm glad you told me what my interesting idea was," the CEO says appreciatively. Bush replies, "I'm not a lawyer, but it looks like I'm leading the witness." "I appreciate that," the CEO says, and Bush shoots back, "You appreciate the fact that I'm not a lawyer?"

Yessir.  Oddly enough, even though I'm one myself, I do.

Me too! I'm also a lawyer, and there are enough lawyers in politics. Look at Kerry and Edwards.
