Just pathetic. The loyal Bushies -- count among them Karl Rove, Margaret Spellings and tool Alberto Gonzales -- flew to Texas for Bush's "welcome home" fete after he passed the torch to Obama and became a former president. Apparently there was a little emotional man-love on the flight. Here's Gonzo reliving the moment and sharing it with Cox News reporter Ken Herman.

GONZALES: The last thing he said as he was getting off the plane — he kissed me on the forehead — and he said, “Just stay strong.” […]

HERMAN: Any tears shed on the plane by anybody?

GONZALES: By me, yeah. There were a few.


GONZALES: Just pride. Just love and appreciation for the man and what he did, Ken. I feel — being on this trip did a lot for me, in terms of just making me realize — it was a small part, but I played a part in protecting our country, and I take a great deal of pride in that.

Watch this pathetic video of Gonzo; there's serious denial that all these Bush loyalists earned a paycheck on our dime as we watched them f*ck up the country.
