President Bush shows off his Apple iPod (link to video)

“Ever wondered what the most powerful man in the world listens to in his spare time? In a rare departure from formal media interviews, George Bush has revealed what is on his personal IPod. Andrew Wilson reports on the President’s favourite tunes,” Sky News reports.

President Bush gets out his 4G iPod and reads some of the songs contained within: The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Alan Jackson, The Archies, Aretha Franklin, “Dan McLean,” upon which Bush was corrected “Don McLean” by Brit Hume, and more. Bush also has an iPod shuffle for bike riding. Bush also says U2’s Bono showed him the new Apple iPod 5G. “My iPod is a clunker, the newer version is much lighter” compared to the new 5G video-capable iPod, Bush said.

  1. Those brat twins better buy him a 5th gen ipod video or I will stamp them as bottom-feeder brats on my brat meter. I hate bratty brats

  2. so, the Bushbashers would rather have that wanking coward kerry in the white house? “mark” got it right; if that putz was in power, the frogs would be dictating American foreign policy; saddam would still be in power; the taliban would still be raping afganistan; and we’d be “enjoying” vastly higher taxes. W may be a little strange, and out of his depth sometimes, but there is no doubt that he was the vastly better choice over that smarmy butt-buddy of little teddy.

  3. Just another GW distraction giving the Bush administration enough time to pick your pockets clean. It’s definitely going to be a Merry Christmas for the haves and the have mores.
