Met some guy from Texas. Nice guy.

And, in case you were wondering, in conversation he was smart, perceptive and very funny. (Very.)

This picture was taken backstage at the OREA event (more pix here and here and here).

We talked, for just a minute, about Kennebunkport, and about how I’ve been going there for years with my kids and family and friends. He said he plans to start spending more time there himself.

Listening to him, I was reminded of what my former boss Jean Chretien told us, when we wondered about the White House reaction to our decision to not participate in the invasion of Iraq.

“He’s a very nice guy,” said the Canadian Prime Minister. “He’s always been a very nice guy.”

    I am a mean, petty man who delights in posting shitty stuff about Warren. I profess to be concerned about mental health, but nothing delights me more than worsening his.

    “Hey y’all – I loved this fella’ in Ghostbusters…”

    Had the pleasure once of seeing him live – while from afar. Saw him interacting with people and they seemed genuinely charmed – not in a creepy way IMHO – afterwards. We’re ALL human – even those we vehemently disagree with. What will it take for many of us to understand that again? ANY of these guys who become POTUS aren’t in the dead middle of the normal curve of cognitive abilities. But most of US are.

      My vote for favourite caption. See also Yves Jacques as the Devil in Denys Arcand’s Jesus of Montreal. Good double bill with Journeys with George by Alexander Pelosi and Aaron Lubarsky for further context.

    I basically agree with what Bill Maher said this past week about Bush Jr.: He’s wasn’t my idea of a good President, but he’s leagues above Trump. Maher noted that Bush Jr. said to Obama, upon Obama’s election victory, “I want you to succeed”. That’s while Trump was pushing a tinfoil hat conspiracy theory that Obama is a secret Muslim infiltrator with a fake birth certificate.

    Maher also pointed out that Bush refused to pardon Scooter Libby when Cheney was aggressively pushing Bush to do so. I wasn’t previously aware of that, and that speaks very well of Bush.
