George Bush and Ariel Sharon Have their Brokeback Moment

Personally, I think there are better reasons to visit Israel (NSFW), but during President Bush's visit to Israel yesterday he met privately with Omri and Gilad Sharon, sons of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Sharon suffered a massive stroke over two years ago, and has been in a coma since:

"It was like closing a circle," said Raanan Gissin, a former adviser to the 79-year-old former Israeli leader. "It was a tribute to a comrade-in-arms and from one cowboy to another -- one rancher to another."
There you have it: Ariel Sharon. One more cowboy who is not focused on beating the Giants this Sunday.
