Relentless optimism

Otherwise known as staying the course because he never bothered to learn where the brake was, Bush plows ahead. He's going on a trip to them ferrin countries over there.

"In an awkward bit of timing, Bush will be globe-trotting when Congress returns to town next week to open its lame-duck session, taking up business the White House deems vital."

Ah, gee.

On your trip, remember what you've learned, Georgie:
"Bush had started the exchange by noting, absurdly, that, "This is your neighborhood, doesn't take you long to get home." Uh, yeah, incurious George, sure thing. Never mind that St. Petersburg is in Europe, on Russia's northwestern corner, due north of Turkey, and Beijing is on the eastern edge of mainland Asia.

"You, eight hours? Me too. Russia's a big country and you're a big country," he said when corrected, sounding for all the world like an earnest kindergartner, processing new information. "Russia's big and so is China.""


Rising Hegemon puts the finger right ... in it.
