Karl Rove And Air Force One

This is just for a chuckle, really. Since it's not commercial aviation-related and not entirely non-aviation, military seems most appropriate.

Bush Adviser Sits Under Air Force One
Mon Oct 18,10:54 PM ET

McGUIRE AIR FORCE BASE, N.J. - Karl Rove laid himself on the line Monday for his boss, the president of the United States.

That is, he laid himself under the wheels of Air Force One. Reason: Unclear, but it seems to have been an inside joke between Rove and President Bush (news - web sites). Returning to the aircraft after Bush's foreign policy speech, the two men traded words. As Bush climbed the stairs, his top political adviser set his briefcase down in front of the tires and stretched out on the ground with his back to the wheels. Rove stood back up moments later; a smiling Bush waved from the plane and they both got aboard. "It was a humorous moment on the campaign trail," was all Bush campaign spokesman Scott Stanzel would say about Rove's antic.
