This morning, President Bush gave a brief speech to mark the National Day of Prayer. And we saw that Mike Buster, executive pastor at Prestonwood Baptist Church, joined Dubya at the White House for the six-minute how-dee-do. Buster even got a shout-out from the president, according to the White House Press Office's transcript:
I am glad that one of my fellow Texans has made it. Mike, thanks for coming from Prestonwood Baptist Church, Dallas, Texas. And you married a woman named Laura. (Laughter.)
The man is a regular Shecky Green. --Robert Wilonsky
