The year was 2004. It was summer, July. The 12th. Occasion ? Pappy Bush's 80th, and after pappy floated down from the sky, parachuted down to Houston's Minute Maid Park that is, after the day's celebratory birthday festivities, the gang, George W. Bush, George Bush Sr. ("41"), Dick Cheney, Condi Rice, Larry King, Randy Travis and John McCain endorser Pastor John Hagee went off to a tacky Asian restaurant where, amidst the Mai-Tai and Poo-poo platterness, the gold paint and umbrellas, they schmoozed, probably discussing Hagee's upcoming role in the evangelical GOTV effort that helped give us another four years of George W. Bush. It's very likely GOP presidential candidate Senator John McCain will have his own summer '08 GOTV meeting with Hagee, whose reach has greatly expanded since 2004, but McCain will probably make sure that no pictures wander out into the public domain.
