How's this for a twist? Bush insults H'wood

Empty

President Bush took a potshot at Hollywood on Monday when he made a seemingly off-handed remark about what the industry purportedly stands for.

Bush's rhetorical broadside came as he paid tribute to the new chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, U.S. Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, noting that his parents were well-regarded, behind-the-scenes players in the U.S. movie industry.

"Many people are surprised when told about the admiral's show business roots," Bush said. "After all, he is humble, well-grounded and filled with common sense. Not exactly what one thinks about when they think of Hollywood values."
