I listened to the press conference live on CNNj. I hadn't caught the background news yet, so I kept wondering why Dubya was going to such lengths to thank Musharraf's daughter at the beginning of his statement; thought maybe he might be confusing himself with Clinton and letting "Little George" downstairs do the talking.

Later I found out he was trying to rub M's nose in it for the snub of sending his daughter and not coming to the airport to meet Bush himself.

Petty and small, a president we can be proud of.

It's a good thing he's on our side, isn't it? I'd hate to think of facing an enemy leader with his level of intelligence. We wouldn't stand a chance.


I had thought there was no further comedy to be derived from this administration.

I am glad/sorry to see I was wrong.

You have a great blog, by the way.

Having looked at a few articles in the Asia Times lately, it isn't much of a stretch to see that Musharrif is barely hanging on to power. Bush is sucking up to India in case he "needs" them if/when Pakistan blows up. Of course since Pakistan is a nuclear power, it could blow up in all sorts of nasty ways and in oh so many places. Bush's petty behavior in Pakistan didn't do much to help Musaharrif in the eyes of his countrymen; it was more like publicly disciplining his least favorite dog, an act that plays really, really poorly in that culture.

Really, can these guys become any more inept at international diplomacy? Every time I think they can't make a bigger blunder than the last one, they manage to suprise me yet again.

I think Stupid Answer Monkey has a grudge on him, lol!
