Business is the backbone of our economy

Bush visited a box factory in Arkansas today. Only 462 days to moving day, you know. He had another reason: “One of the reasons I’ve stopped by this facility here in Arkansas is to remind people that business is the backbone of our economy.” See, you wouldn’t have known that if he hadn’t gone to a box factory in Arkansas.

Boxes, so many boxes

Say, George, could you tell us some more about the economy? “When people are buying this man’s boxes, it also means they’re buying product at the retail level.”

Condi “Call Me Frank” Rice is in the Middle East, because, she says, “Frankly, it’s time for the establishment of a Palestinian state.” Is that what the problem has been the last 60 years? It just wasn’t “time.” However, she isn’t sure if next month is the time for the conference she accidently let slip she had hoped to hold: “We frankly have better things to do than invite people to Annapolis for a photo op.” Condi has better things to do? Condi has things to do? Buying shoes? Visiting Russian skaters?

In an interview with ABC, Condi was asked about the Armenian Genocide resolution: “We have encouraged and worked with the Turks to try to get them to overcome these historical -- these terrible historical circumstances and to work directly with the Armenians.” What does that even mean? How does one “overcome” genocide, especially if one doesn’t admit there was a genocide? And, um, Turks “working directly with the Armenians”... well, you know where I’m going.

For no particular reason, Bush and an umbrella:
