Commander Tact Strikes Again

Dubya dazzles the Palestinians with his compassion and wit:

Ayman Moyheldin reports for Al Jazeera: “He came with a message of hope, but to many Palestinians, it may be for his side comments and his jokes that George Bush will be remembered for. . . .

“Palestinian officials say the fact that you had a U.S. president on Palestinian Authority territory, talking about a Palestinian state, well they say that in itself is an achievement. But you could just feel the moment melt when George Bush was asked about the hardships that Israeli checkpoints cause Palestinians and he responded by joking about how he didn’t have to stop at any.”

Here’s what Bush said at his joint press conference in Ramallah yesterday: “You’ll be happy to hear that my motorcade of a mere 45 cars was able to make it through without being stopped, but I’m not so exactly sure that’s what happens to the average person.”

Al Jazeera correspondent Rob Reynolds said Bush’s remarks showed a lack of “understanding of how bitterly Palestinians resent those barriers, which strangle the local economy and often subject Palestinians to petty humiliations.”

Smoooooth.

    And the “Biggest Asshole In The Entire World, Ever” award goes to… George W. Bush!

    And in other news, Franco is still dead.

    Along with the Dim Son’s hilarious search for WMDs in the Oval Office, this is a contender for the Most Deserving of a Punch in the Presidential Face Award. Really, I’m a pacific girl, but the way this man’s mouth inspires me to fantasies of violence…
