Behold the Platonic ideal of a "shit-eating grin"

The lead photo in this New York Times article about Gore meeting with Bush to discuss global warming makes my skin crawl. Bush has such a look of "Hee hee, I totally cheated you out of the presidency, and now here you are trying to convince me to pay attention to science! Like I'm ever going to do that."

Anyway, the really head-slapping part comes at the end of the article:

Aides say the two have had little contact in the years since, meeting only occasionally, at public events like Mr. Bush’s first inaugural and the dedication of President Clinton’s presidential library. Mr. Bush made no comment when the Nobel was announced, and today, the two stood silently, and a bit awkwardly, during the photo opportunity.

But the president did personally telephone Mr. Gore to extend the invitation, and the White House changed the date of the event so Mr. Gore could attend. Mr. Bush’s press secretary, Dana Perino, told reporters the president is willing to let bygones be bygones.

“This president does not harbor any resentments,” she said. “He never has.”

Harbor resentments? About what? "I don't harbor any resentments for the fact that you made an effort, however feeble, to prevent me from stealing the election from you and then proceeding to grind the Constitution under the dung-stained heel of my cowboy boot."

"BOO-YA," he did not go on to add.

I can't help but think of Louis Black saying "President Bush finally admits to believing in global warming. And that gives me second thoughts about believing it exists."

Wow, he sucks. Just so, so much.
