Wherein is revealed a type of war George Bush actually doesn’t want


Pope Benny says the issue of rampant sexual abuse of children by Catholic clergy was “very badly handled.” You know what else was badly handled? Children’s genitals.

Silvio Berlusconi – and I can’t tell you how disgusted I am with the Italian electorate right now – made fun of Spain’s new prime minister Zapatero for appointing a cabinet with a female majority. He says he couldn’t do that because there just aren’t enough qualified women in Italian politics (although he’s considering giving a cabinet position to a former Miss Italy contestant and lingerie model, so I guess there are qualifications and then there are qualifications), and said, “Now he’s asked for it. He will have problems leading them.”

By the way, the new Spanish defense minister, Carme Chacón, is seven months’ pregnant. That’s oddly cool.

Remember last year when Iran seized 15 British sailors & marines supposedly inside Iraqi territorial waters? Well, according to the London Times, “The Britons were seized because the US-led coalition designated a sea boundary for Iran’s territorial waters” ...wait for it.... “without telling the Iranians where it was”.

Bush gave a speech in the Rose Garden today about global warming, in which one would be hard put to find any proposal to actually do something about global warming, or any sense of urgency. Evidently, “there is a wrong way and a right way to approach reducing greenhouse gas emissions.”


The right way is with, like, technology, nuclear power plants, technology, “clean” coal, and technology. He’s against a “carbon-based global trade war.” Just in case you were wondering. Then the Rose Garden came to life and swallowed him whole, the end.
