Get Your Photo On with George Bush

My friend Bert visited me the other night. He works as a facilities manager at a convention center in Iowa. He said George Dubya was in town a few weeks ago to endorse a political candidate. When I asked him if he had a chance to meet the commander in chief he said, "Almost."

Bert had hoped to get his picture taken with the prez, but apparently didn't have the wallet for it. Anyone attending the conference was welcome to get their picture taken with the president, given they were willing to pay for it. The price? $10,000. What sucker would pay that much for a photo? Bert said that there were at least 20 people who shelled out the cash. Who could blame 'em?
