Perhaps you saw the photo of President Bush's PowerBook a few years ago.

Now you can see his iPod in this slideshow -

Vice President Cheney has an iPod too. And of course, Al Gore is on the Board of Directors of Apple, and probably has several iPods.

It's good to see that Democrats and Republicans have found common ground on the best technology for consumers.

I'm not surprised Bush has an iPod. The republicans probably told him they are moral, so he didn't think twice about doing it. Or maybe he was looking for a Dell DJ, but gave up looking for it and now can't control his iTunes.

It always amazes with this sort of thing when I hear about famous or noteworthy people who either do something or own something that the rest of us can do or have. Like it makes a difference if George Bush or John Kerry or whoever else has an iPod. Big deal. It's an awesome gadget and it would appear that someone like W would agree.

Basically, I don't feel any better or worse now knowing that the President uses an iPod. None of you should feel any different either.

I don't particularly like either Gore or Bush, but it doesn't surprise me that they use Macs and iPods. Considering Rush and Stern do as well (and, I believe, so does Al Franken) you're either safe either way, or screwed either way. Those of us in the middle will continue using whatever product is best, regardless of who else uses it.

Apple can use him in a commercial.

"I'm President Bush, and I approved this ad."

"Uh, hah thair. Um, you know, bein' president is hard. It's hard work. And when I get done reamin' the seniors, or, uh, you know, looking for that Bin Ladin guy in uh, Eye-rak, I like tuh settle in with my new 20GB iPod. Has all the songs I like. Uh, the Pointer Sisters, uh the uh, um, that other country band, whatchacallit, uh, Briggs and Stratton. I think they're from Texas. Anyway this here Epod, uh, iPod sure helps me forget about those little folk out there. I'd recommend it for any uh, fascis... uh, leader. I mean, these things are amazing, like it was designed by God-my-Heavenly-Father-Oh-Give-Me-Strength-To-Smite-The-Homosexuals-And-Abortionists.... uh.
Be a leader get yer-self one of these iPod thingees."

Announcer: "iPod. We'll sell them to anyone. Even him"

And, the thread mentioned the President, who continues to be a contentious figure, I knew that just by reading the thread's title. Lots of people don't like the guy; 49% of the voting public in fact (give or take a few Diebold machines).

Parenal Guidance rating is safe for toddlers. Inscription reads; "Not a Pretzel, do not ingest."

Post Insrciption defines what ingestion means. As well as, "it doesn't work because it is not the remote Sparky."

I'm sick to death of people tacking political gobshite on to every little last thing.

What makes Apple Great is the product, not who uses it.

Goto the political thread if you want to pretend that the only "good" people in the world share your own politics.

Somebody move this thread so this can get silly somewhere less sensible. ie political forums.

Ahem, why do you think it was announced that the President has an iPod?

It wouldn't have anything to do with politics would it?

I expect and support ridicule of such an obvious political ploy.

Who gives a dam if the President has an iPod? cept for the popularity of the iPod.

This has little to do with Apple, does the President have a G5 iMac or a PowerPC? equal products but no where near as popular are they?

If the President can't handle a Sinclair thingy, or read a newspaper, how does he manage an iPod.

What isn't political these days? Think he has the Dixie Chicks on his playlist?

This isn't seriously political, as a thread. Just making fun of an obviously political ploy.

The President is cool, get it?

Just have fun with it.
