Sometimes, You Just Gotta Laugh - To Stay Sane

These are some excerpts from Bush's latest meeting with Putin:

"I live in a transparent country," Bush said at one point. "I live in a country where decisions made by government are wide open." 1

Umm... since when has the Bush administration been open? This is the most secretive administration I have ever seen.

"For most of the rest of the world it must have seemed like the theater of the absurd to have Putin and Bush up there (debating) democracy," said Clifford Gaddy, a Russia expert at the Brookings Institution. 1

Absurd is an understatement.

"I'm perfectly comfortable in telling you, our country is one that safeguards human rights and human dignity, and we resolve our disputes in a peaceful way," Bush said with obvious irritation. 1

Seriously... Am I living on another planet, or perhaps an alternate universe? What has he resolved yet in a peaceful way?

But my favorite for the week is still:

"This notion that the United States is getting ready to attack Iran is simply ridiculous," Bush said at the press conference jointly held with EU leaders.
"And having said that," he quickly added, "all options are on the table." 2
