Expletivity

Breaking news! George W. Bush says bad word at the G8 summit in St. Petersburg, Russia.

The usually inarticulate W is reported to have linked the following 22 words while speaking to Tony Blair whilst dining today (apparently unaware that a microphone was picking up his comment): "See, the irony is what they really need to do is to get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this (bad word)."

Now this is news. If you didn't already read it on CNN, you saw it here first. (NOTE: Huffington Post provides greater detail of this monumental booboo. Even so, remember that Clotheslineblog is the place to come for news that matters most.) Now for our thoughtful analysis.

See, George is a God-fearing man. More than that, he is a Barbara Bush-fearing man. And one must believe that Barbara will not put up with that kind of (bad word) coming out of her boy-child's mouth. So when he gets back from his trip, there is going to be (bad word) to pay. The First Mother wields a very large bar of soap.

The fecal reference was uttered in response to Tony Blair's impassioned pressure for putting together an international peacekeeping force in the Middle East. Well (bad word)! Yes, of course. Bush is, after all, a war president. And one must conclude that the more wars he drags us into, the greater his war president legacy.

You want some really bad words? Try WWIII (yeah, I know, that's Newt's bad word). Try global instability. Try no more oil. Try military draft. Try religious right screaming "Armageddon." Try "Cheney's back in the bunker." Oh, wait, that's a good thing. Try military draft. Try peacekeeping force. Think about that oxymoron.

The war president must be (bad word) delighted with unfolding events. Try "Nero."

Holy s- Did Pres. George really say that?
Will his expletive go down in history? If so, will the Florida Legislature* accept this as fact for school textbooks and/or will Gov. Jeb make an acception and allow students the choice of interpretation with the hope the students won't believe that brother George ever said that.

Still not as bad as fondling the Chancelor of Germany or being made to look like a moron by Vlad Putin in front of the press corps.

But please quit picking on Jeb....he is, after all, the only Governor whose offspring was busted for crack....while she was in re-hab.
