Old joke, with infinite variations:
Three Texas plastic surgeons were playing golf together and discussing surgeries they had performed.

One of them said "I'm the best plastic surgeon in Texas. A concert pianist lost seven fingers in an accident. I reattached them and eight months later he performed a private concert for the queen of England."

One of the others said "That's nothing. A young man lost both arms and legs in an accident. I reattached them, and two years later he won a gold medal in five field events in the Olympics."

The third surgeon said "You guys are amateurs. Several years ago a yuppie cowboy who was high on cocaine and alcohol rode a horse head-on into a train traveling 80 miles an hour. All I had left to work with was the horse's ass and a cowboy hat.

And now he's President of the United States."

Heh, pretty good! But alas, there is a flaw in the joke; Bush is afraid of horses.
As for being a tough, charming cowboy -- we're talking about a man who came away bruised and publicly shamed from an altercation with a pretzel and who is so afraid of horses he refused to go riding with Mexican President Vicente Fox (he also refused a custom-made saddle Fox tried to give him). This season's AP article even notes that there are no horses on Bush's ranch and that Bush calls himself a windshield rancher."
It might work a little better if he rode his bicycle into the train (one wishes).

But I'm just picking nits.

Well, if you got in a wreck like that while riding a horse, you'd be pretty afraid of horses too!
