This is how left-wing tabloid newspaper The Daily Mirror reported George Bush's falling off a Segway a few years ago:
BUSH ENCOUNTERS 'FOOLPROOF' TECHNOLOGY
"THE makers promise it will never fall over... So even George Bush should be able to use the Segway personal two-wheel transporter without tumbling off. After all, it's kept upright by some of the most sophisticated gyroscopes known to man, linked to a series of computers to detect the slightest movement.
But if anyone can make a pig's ear of riding a sophisticated, self-balancing machine like this, Dubya can. The President climbed on, stumbled a bit, then crashed off the other side - before it had actually gone anywhere. And this is the man who used to fly fighter planes.
Only his pride was hurt. And, to be fair, to Mr Bush, he did climb back on and finally get the hang of the machine at his dad George Bush Snr's home."
The paper was edited at the time by Piers Morgan. One of the milder things Morgan said about Bush in the paper was this before his re-election:
"I am deeply sceptical that the Bush family are capable of free and fair elections. I sincerely hope America wakes up to this guy in November and elects somebody with a less disturbing blood lust."
He was later sacked for publishing fake photos of British soldiers mistreating Iraqis.
Now he's been caught on video in America falling off a Segway himself. In his case more than his pride was hurt, he broke three ribs. There's no intellectual merit to this story at all, it's just delicious to see one example of gratuitous Bush-bashing to backfire!
