As noted in this morning's Net, the photo of the weekend comes from USA Today (via Deadspin), which followed President George Bush's continuing tour of the Olympic Games as he met with beach volleyball goddesses Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh.

On Friday, when President Bush met U.S. athletes ahead of the the opening ceremonies, beach volleyball star May-Treanor asked him to slap her lower back, a common gesture in her sport. He declined. But on the practice courts of the Olympic volleyball venue… the bikini-clad May-Treanor tried again. And this time, he couldn't resist.

"Show me something out there!" Bush urged May-Treanor and partner Kerri Walsh, who promised him "We'll make you proud."

Needless to say, I'm completely unfit to be president.  "Spank me, Mr. President!"  "No, spank me!"  "Ladies, ladies… I'm a busy man.  I don't have time to– actually, why don't you go ahead and drop trou."

In other Olympic Bush reports, LeBron James greeted former president George H.W. Bush by saying, "What's up, pops."  No word on whether Bron offered his lower back for a slap.  I say yes.
