Jim Webb -- A Very Dude Senator


From yesterday's Washington Post:

At a recent White House reception for freshman members of Congress, Virginia's newest senator tried to avoid President Bush. Democrat James Webb declined to stand in a presidential receiving line or to have his picture taken with the man he had often criticized on the stump this fall. But it wasn't long before Bush found him.
"How's your boy?" Bush asked, referring to Webb's son, a Marine serving in Iraq.
"I'd like to get them out of Iraq, Mr. President," Webb responded, echoing a campaign theme.
"That's not what I asked you," Bush said. "How's your boy?"
"That's between me and my boy, Mr. President," Webb said coldly, ending the conversation on the State Floor of the East Wing of the White House.

It would have been more dude if Webb shook the President's hand, then suddenly give him the Stone Cold Stunner; following by pulling out a can of beer, pouring it on said President, and then taking off his elbow pad, thrown it in the direction of the cheering Senate Majority, and then proceed to drop the People's Elbow on said prostrate President...

That would be dude
