"Are you gonna bark all day little doggie, or are you gonna bite?"

George W and his 2nd favourite dog Tony Blair held a press conference this morning to talk about their meeting on the middle east. And the new ideas that emerged from their brainstorming session? "The terrorists are trying to stop the march of freedom", and "they hate our freedom". B&B did at least call for a ceasefire, but offered no plans on how to make that happen. I can't believe, that with a situation of this magnitude looming on the horizon, Bush would resort to the same old "democracy is on the march" crap.

Bush's bullshit platitudes are so old and worn out that I was expecting to hear him say "yadda yadda" at some point... "a new middle east, yadda yadda." (Shit, he even said "nucyaler" 3 times. Would it kill the guy to speak proper English instead of Hillbilly-ese?) Maybe I'm an overly-critical, grouchy old bag. But it seems to me that the world is on the doorstep of a major disaster, in no small part because of this man's actions, and he holds a press conference and basically just phones it in? Anyone who's doubted that Bush is dangerously incompetent only had to watch him delivering these canned talking points today, like a fucking ventriloquist's dummy, and be terrified. The child-president, making messes everywhere, whining about the big bully that's shaking him down for his lunch money. This is the man who's responsible for keeping us from careening towards a world war. You wanna talk about terror? That's terrifying.
