All hat, no cattle?

Dear Editor:President Bush owns a ranch in Crawford, Texas. The president has acquired a lot of political capital for being a regular, working Western guy. It just dawned on me, I have never seen a picture of the prez on a horse. I have been asking everyone; no one has seen such a picture. I went to Google and couldn’t find a picture there. Nor have I ever seen a picture of the Bush cattle, or any other livestock. I checked Webster: a ranch is a farm where livestock is raised. So how is it Bush is called a rancher, that apparently never gets on a horse, and does not raise livestock? All hat and no cattle?The president does ride down at the ranch. He rides a mountain bike. You know, same thing: I have never seen a picture of him on his mountain bike. I have nothing against mountain bikes, I have one myself. But there may be a reason we haven’t seen him with his bike. Riding a mountain bike is what East Coast, sushi-eating, Volvo driving, snowboarding liberal elitists do. Wrong image. Patrick HunterCarbondale
