Good Lord, what a trio in this lede from a press release: "George Bush, 41st President of the United States, will present the [Drayton] McLane Leadership in Business Award to Chuck Norris in recognition of Mr. Norris's achievements as a martial arts legend, entrepreneur, and humanitarian."
It goes on from there (Norris' book Black Belt Patriotism will be available for purchase at the event!!!), but the opening really says it all.
If the event next Tuesday doesn't sound like the Ninth Circle of Hell, there's this: it's taking place in College Station. At the Bush Library.
You have been warned. If you're a complete masochist, tickets are free. Call 979-862-2251 for the chance to hear George Bush the elder talk about the hearty patriotism and can-do spirit of both Chuck Norris and Drayton McLane.
