Frat boy redux

politicsOh Jeebus, Bush is such an embarassment. After displaying his stunningly shallow view of the situation in Lebanon yesterday, today he committed the major faux pax of laying his hands on German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who was clearly startled and shocked.bush gropes merkelNo, George, this is not okay. Blogger Majikthise has this take:

Every woman will recognize the guy who sidles up and starts “casually” giving you a backrub without even looking at you, because he wants to preserve deniability in case you freak out. Like any practiced groper, Bush stares right past Merkel as she recoils from his touch.

The play fails, but he just moves on, eyes averted, like it’s her problem. (“Oh my God, there’s a hysterical woman displaying inappropriate behavior! I’ll just pretend I don’t notice her egregious gaffe.”)

What a fucking ass-clown. What else could he possibly do to make the US look bad? What shame he has brought to our country.
