Sideshow Bush

The quote 'Border relations between Canada and Mexico have never been better' set the tone for George Bush's grasp of geography. Everything else that followed set the tone for him being a muppet.
In what must rank as the most gaffe prone press conference ever, Bush did everything but poke his own eye out with the microphone.
"Thank you for being such a fine host for the Opec summit," Mr Bush said to the Australian prime minister, John Howard, confusing two completely different groupings of nations. "Apec summit," he quickly corrected himself.
Not one to make one cock-up when he can quite easily make two, he then thanked the "Austrian troops" for their work in Iraq.
Then, speech done, Mr Bush confidently headed out - the wrong way. He strode away from the lectern on a path that would have sent him over a steep drop. Mr Howard and others redirected the president to where there were steps leading down to the floor of the theatre.
If only a few rakes had been left laying around on the floor, we could of had a spectacular Sideshow Bob moment.

What a maroon. I hope he's headed for doddering old fooldom to top off his title of WPE.

This is why the predictions of his lucrative speaking career after 2008 just leave me stunned.

George Bush having a speaking career is as funny a thought as Britney Spears becoming a hair stylist.

George's best job after his Presidency ends (assuming there's any world left) could be becoming a ventriloquist's dummy!

Cheers!
