What a pillock.

I don't now how many of you have seen/heard/read about his presentation at the 60th annual dinner of the Radio and Television Correspondents' Association of America but he was cracking some fine jokes.

You can read the story here (Bush's Iraq WMDs joke backfires - BBC On-line 26 March 2004) but in brief Bush Jnr narrated a slide show poking fun at himself and others in his administration. The following has been lifted from the BBC news article....

---One pictured Mr Bush looking under a piece of furniture in the Oval Office, at which the president remarked: "Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be here somewhere."

After another one, showing him scouring the corner of a room, Mr Bush said: "No, no weapons over there," he said.

And as a third picture, this time showing him leaning over, appeared on the screen the president was heard to say: "Maybe under here?" ---

That's right Jnr make fun of the fact that you completely mislead the world and took not only your own country but a number of others on a war in completely false pretenses and have as a result heightened the hatred against your own people and helped destabilise an already volatile region.


I want to live in a reasonably stable and peaceful world that isn't run by raving, completely unstable, religous lunatics of any denomination. Is that too much to ask?

You can't possibly hate him as much as I do, Angus. My blood pressure rises everytime I see his face or hear his really damn annoying voice.

I wish that by voting against him I would be able to influence the election in any way shape or form in order to get him out of office. But my vote doesn't count. Why? Because of the electoral college. I live in Texas, which is a very republican state. As a result, Bush will win the popular vote in Texas and thus all the electoral votes will go to Bush. It literally makes no difference whether I vote for Bush or not because of the state I live in.

As you can imagine, this really, really, makes me angry. Oh, I'm still going to vote, but I vote with the knowledge that I'm having no outcome on the election whatsoever. I know republicans who live in predominantly democratic states have similar frustrations. The system just plain doesn't work any more. I'm actually neither republican nor democrat, so my vote would be toast wherever I lived, but it is particularly bad living in a strongly republican state.

When I go to other countries, I am always a little self-conscious, because I really don't want to be judged based on the actions of our president. I didn't vote for him last time, I'm voting against him again this time, and I hate what he's doing to our country and the world at large. I wonder if there are shirts one can buy for traveling abroad that say, "Yes, I'm American, but I think Bush is an a*hole."

My political views are mine personally and not my company's.

That's a great idea for a shirt. Someone could make millions out of that idea!

Blair just confuses me. I don't like a lot of his policies and he comes across as being very arrogant and slimey but then he does some very good things (such as recently with Libya).

He still won't be getting my vote at the next election though but I do think he'll get back in.
