We Are Not Amused...

Queen Elizabeth II grits her teeth and internally calculates the generations of inbreeding that produced our current leader in this Reuters photo by Jason Reed.

Just to show she's not a bad sport, Queen Lizzie II cracked a little joke at a cozy little dinner for 100 in her honor the other evening at British Ambassador David Manning's pad.

She opened her toast to President Bush by wondering whether she should say "when I was last here in 1776," thereby giving a nod to Mr. Bush's accidental (yet, let's face it, hardly surprising) comment on her age Monday, when he said that she helped the U.S. "celebrate its bicentennial in 17--1976."

Nice save, George. It's a good thing everybody knows you're a little light in the noggin. And you're lucky you did it here--on her turf, you might have ended up in a tower with a smashing view.

On the other hand, this could start a whole new trend: state leader roasts! The Friars Club is getting a little stale after all...

If only we could read the Queens mind during her meeting with bushie. I'm sure she thought him a complete fool, she was not amused.
On another note: Some Arabs were arrested trying to blow up shit and stuff. Correct me if I'm wrong, Bushies current reason for being in Iraq is so they won't come here. Now what?

Now what? Now he says that it's the Democrats' fault for not showing a united front in the war on terror, thereby emboldening would-be terrorists. That's what now. Rest assured, it'll all be someone else's fault. (I wonder what's going to happen when they run out of "aides" willing to fall on their swords for them.)

A woman just visited our country who has carried the same handbag, sported the same hairstyle and has refused to shave her legs for the past 80 years.

Standing beside Dubya, QE2 suddenly looked hip, "with it" and radically intelligent.

Then again, a coma patient looks radically intelligent when compared to our President. Go know.

Oh, well...I'll bet Laura doesn't shave her legs for him anymore, either. ;-) (Why bother?)
