The Metaphor of the Misunderbuttoned Blue Shirt
It occurs to me, all kidding aside, that the fact that George Bush showed up for what some have called the most important speech of his presidency since 9/11 in a shirt that was improperly buttoned just might be a metaphor for the state of his presidency.
Bush was blissfully unaware of the reality of his misunderbuttoned shirt.
Possibly his hangers-on didn't notice the reality of his misunderbuttoned shirt.
Possibly his hangers-on were too scared to point out the reality of his misunderbuttoned shirt.
The mainstream media haven't paid a lot of attention to the misunderbuttoned shirt, but bloggers have.
