In one of the several pieces of startling video exhibited for the first time in Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11,” we catch a candid glimpse of President Bush […] minutes before he makes his own prime-time TV address to take the nation to war in Iraq. He is sitting at his desk in the Oval Office. A makeup woman is doing his face. And Mr. Bush is having a high old time. He darts his eyes about and grins, as if he were playing a peek-a-boo game with someone just off-camera. He could be a teenager goofing with his buds to relieve the passing tedium of a haircut.
