Dignity Returned To The White House
Well, I suppose I should be used to this by now, but I am amazed (and aghast!) by this discussion between the Prez'nit of the Newited Skates and the President of the Philippine Islands, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo today:
PRESIDENT BUSH: Madam President, it is a pleasure to welcome you back to the Oval Office. We have just had a very constructive dialogue. First, I want to tell you how proud I am to be the President of a nation that -- in which there's a lot of Philippine-Americans. They love America and they love their heritage. And I reminded the President that I am reminded of the great talent of the -- of our Philippine-Americans when I eat dinner at the White House. (Laughter.)
PRESIDENT ARROYO: Yes.
PRESIDENT BUSH: And the chef is a great person and a really good cook, by the way, Madam President.
PRESIDENT ARROYO: Thank you.
You can read the entire transcript here, if you dare.
I imagine a discussion with President Pervez Musharraf:
PRESIDENT BUSH: Mr. President, I am reminded of the great talent of the -- of our Pakistan-Americans every time I visit the 7-11! (Laughter). And the great talent of our Sikh-Americans when I take a taxi in New York City! (Even more laughter) And the really great talent of our African-Americans when watching sports!! (Choking laughter followed by falling off the couch)
PRESIDENT MUSHARRAF: Thank you, Mr. President; you are such a card!
PRESIDENT BUSH: Hey Pervy; Pull my finger!!!
PRESIDENT MUSHARRAF: No, thank you, Mr. President. May we talk about the problems at the Afghan-Pakistan border now?
PRESIDENT BUSH: Oh, c'mon, Pervy; Pull my finger! PULL MY FINGER!!
