One at a time, please

"I spoke to President Musharraf right before I came over here to visit with President Sarkozy. And my message was that we believe strongly in elections and that you ought to have elections soon, and you need to take off your uniform. You can't be the president and the head of the military at the same time."
-- President Bush at a Nov. 7 news conference in Virginia
(Here's the transcript.)

Ironic, coming from a man who never misses an opportunity to refer to himself as the Commander-in-Chief.

Bush has absolutely no leg to stand on in telling other world leaders what to do, even if I agree with the sentiment here.

...unless you're President of the United States of America. Then, it's OK.

Mission Accomplished!

No, wait! Did he really say that? Oh wow, what I miss sometimes not being a news junkie. Well, I guess he ought to know. But if he's not running our military, who the F is?

Tom Lehrer once said that he knew that "Satire was dead when they gave Henry Kissinger the Nobel Peace Prize."

I'm not sure if irony is dead yet, but this President is sure making multiple attempts on its life.
