Sh*t Storm

Posted by codemorse

There's been a lot of virtual and actual ink spilled over President Bush's recent comments to Tony Blair at the G8 conference. For those of you just returning to the present time in your snazzy DeLoreans, here's what was said:

"I think Condi (Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice) is going to go (to the Middle East) pretty soon," Bush said.

Blair replied: "Right, that's all that matters, it will take some time to get that together." Rice said on Sunday she was thinking of going to the region if it would help.

However, Rice headed back to the United States after the G8 summit closed on Monday, a State Department spokeswoman said.

Blair added: "See, if she (Rice) goes out she's got to succeed as it were, where as I can just go out and talk."

Bush replied: "See, the irony is what they need to do is get Syria to get Hizbollah to stop doing this shit and it's over."

Maybe it's just me (I tend to have potty-mouth, especially when I've been hittin' the Jack D.), but this "story" seems pretty ridiculous to me. Not to mention petty.

Oooooooh! The President said 'shit'! How uncouth of him! Frankly, the President can sling expletives all day long as far as I'm concerned. Hell, give us a President with tourettes if he can handle domestic and foriegn policy effectively.

There are literally hundreds of Bush quotes that are legitimately stupid and/or mean. At this point even a dyed-in-the-wool liberal has to wonder: what's the point?

Shouldn't we be concentrating on the meat of the G8 summit, and not our Leader's lil' 'faux pas'?

But Morse you know that part of being such a public figure is having every word scrutinized, especially the "naughty" ones. This shouldn't surprise you, sadden you a little perhaps.

Surprised? Nah.

Not really saddened, either.

Just sort of bewildered. This man's pulled truly, breathtakingly stupid shit during his term. Can't we focus on the big stuff, pretty please, and forget the private vulgarity?
