Someone must get hurt and it won't be me. Dear readers, I am flummoxed. For the first time in six years, I think our shit-for-brains President might not only have a realistic understanding of a situation but, Lord help me, he might actually be on my side of a debate! Check out another infamous oops-the-mic-was-still-on snafu, this time from the G-8 summit:

Apparently not expecting an open mike to pick up his remarks, Bush told Blair: "See the irony is what they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this s___ and it's over."

Okay, so points off for misunderstanding the meaning of the word irony, but the sentiment is there. Don't blame Israel for defending itself, blame the Syrian- and Iranian-backed terrorist organization!

"What about Kofi Annan?" Bush asked Blair. "I don't like the sequence of it. His attitude is basically cease-fire and everything else happens."

Not being a big fan of many UN policies myself, any jab at the UN's anti-semitic and ineffectual policies are okay with me.

I don't believe I am about to say this--I really don't--and I'm sure my father would answer me with a hearty dose of skeptisim in the veign of "These are bad guys, don't be fooled," but...okay, this is going to hurt...

Thank you, Mr. President.

it's at least as ironic as rain on your wedding day. but less ironic than writing an entire song about irony that has no examples of actual irony within it. meta, dude.
