Has Bush completely lost it?

Seriously, there’s no way I can keep up with the President’s ridiculousness over the last few days. Besides telling Putin that Russia should emulate the flourishing democracy in Iraq, there was the bizarre press conference about the pig, and then talking to Blair with the mike on, and now he’s groping the German chancellor.
WTF? Is he drunk? Is this some extension of the madman theory of international relations? Or is it some deep strategy in the War on Terror: if representatives of the U.S. act like total clowns at international summits, the terrorists will decide we aren’t worth attacking?
Even his dad had more dignity when he was vomiting on the Japanese prime minister.

    It sounds like the “sexual predator” variant of the madman theory of international relations. Yuck.
    And I thought one of my labmates was *joking* this morning when he said that W massaged the German chancellor…

    Has W talked to Arnold lately? This could simply be incompetent imitation of the Gropenfuhrer…

    For more oo Bush did you here his first Veto ever will be cast today… on what you might wonder? on the most dangerous and pressing issue to our Union… Stem cell research!

    In some sense, it is a pressing issue because vetoing bills that support such research is a major attack on the fidelity of scientific research in this country—or at least an official statement that scientific research takes a back seat to a government’s agenda. (Not that it doesn’t already, but in some sense an official executive action puts even more of a stamp of approval on such a dangerous attitude.) Next thing you know he’ll decide it’s immoral to do research on quantum chaos and then where will we be?

    Bush is sort of The Boy Who Cried Veto at this point, but if he really does veto that stem cell bill the Democrats had better beat him with it constantly for the rest of his term. It’s popular across party lines.
