Sorry, I really couldn’t figure out where to post this. It feels to me like a GQ post, but as you’ll see, it’s hard to imagine what objective criteria for an answer there could be. Yet it’s not intended as a “debate” per se. I’m just wondering whether a certain portrayal of a certain action I’ve recently seen in the media is, in fact, a portrayal of what it looks like its a portrayal of.
Well, anyway, what I saw appeared to be Bush sort of sneaking up behind the German Chancellor (I forget her name) and initiating a shoulder rub. The Chancellor reacted by cringing and shrinking away, making a very displeased face as she did so. Then Bush just moseyed on along.
I guess my question is, is my description of the event itself accurate? What I’ve described is my impression after seeing the portrayal. Is my impression correctly reflective of the actual event itself?
