The world’s tyrants learned a lesson; George, well, not so much


In the Netherlands, we finally get an answer to the question how dead does an American soldier have to be before Bush visits his grave: 60 years.



Naturally, he tried once again to equate the struggle with fascism with the fight against Al Qaeda, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc. Evidently, they’re both about freedom: “The world’s tyrants learned a lesson: There is no power like the power of freedom and no soldier as strong as a soldier who fights for that freedom.” Then, to celebrate the power of freedom properly, he went to Russia, whose Red Army killed 3/4 of the Germans killed during World War II, under the leadership of Josef Stalin.

In Russia, Putin let Chimpy drive his, uh, vintage 1956 Volga. “I’m having so much fun. We’re going for another lap,” Bush said, adding, “I’m an excellent driver, excellent driver. Pootie Poot lets me drive slow on the driveway. But not on Monday, definitely not on Monday.”
