The republicans used a picture of him windsurfing to paint him as an elitist which helped sink his chances of becoming president. Glad to hear that our new Secretary of State made the transition to kiting.

How about that reel leash. If it's good enough for one of the leaders of the free world, I guess I better get one.

That's a crazy rig. What is that, another leash going up to the Y? And it looks like an old-style giant chicken loop unhooked, but he's clearly hooked in.
