This little episode should illustrate nicely just what a fucking jerk Bush is. I have never understood the notion that Americans, even Democrats, find this man "likable". I do not see at all what is "likable" about him. He's a smart-ass, in about the only way being a smart-ass can be bad. He is incurious and provincial in the most off-putting way, as if he really buys into that "I learned everything I need to know in kindergarten" bullshit. He's an over-privileged frat-boy used to getting his way.
And if you saw the excerpt of his extemporaneous "Freedy McFreederton is democratizing the freedorama freedom democracy freedocracy" crap, you got the idea anyway. It's the same autopilot boilerplate he'll give when the UFO proctonauts tractor-beam his stupid ass up for an anal probe.
Of course, the whole idea of visiting the Baltic states was to give Pooty-Poot a nudge anyway, which required maximum face time. But interrupting his host and throwing up his arms, like a petulant third-grader?
Exactly why have we been hearing that "the adults are in charge" all this time? As much as I despised Clinton and his glandular exploits and his tiresome oleaginous inanities, he at least understood quite well how to put the nation's best foot forward. Jesus H. Christ, whatever happened to just being a good fucking guest?
To most Americans, who think we'll be running the world right up till the Rapture starts, it doesn't matter. To the people with their eyes open, who see our already-declining stature picking up speed thanks to our "theoretical" friend Gravity, it's going to matter a lot sooner than they think.
In other if-this-is-Thursday-it-must-be-Liechtenstein news, Bush came across an audience that might not have been quite as hand-picked as he would have liked.
Ah, he certainly does keep that charge, doesn't he? The sweet smell of Freedom™, marching up and down the square!
