Yo, Bush!

It's been a pretty grim week all round, as the Middle East slides further towards the all-out chaos we always said it would. I don't know about you, but every time George W. Bush says that Syria and Iran should not get involved in the Lebanon-Israel conflict, it sounds to me more like he's daring them to bring it on. Not a good thing.

What a week it's been for Bush - first the open mic jive talking with Tony Blair, then the whole getting to second base with Angela Merkel thing. I'm starting to wonder - is his regular puppetmaster simply on holidays? Is it Cheyney? Is it Karl Rove? It all reminds me of the story I once heard that towards the end of his presidency, Ronald Reagan's minders would delicately steer him towards a helicopter whenever his comments started to get a little weird so that his voice would be drowned out by the sound of the blades.

Such people leading the free world? Sometimes, ya just gotta have a sardonic, subversive laugh.

Indeed, though I question whether he's ever been particularly lucid or logical.

True, but they tend to have someone there to at least keep him back from the grosser excesses ("Hey Kofi! Look! I'm an airplane! Wheeeee!")
