Our president is a fucking retard, vol. 45676523

comment
I really, really don't know how to add to the compendium of dipshittery that is GW Bush. Even my parents, who have never voted for a non-Republican in their lives, have come to realize that this guy is dumb as a brick, and probably should have a home in the Hague rather than the White House.

Anyway. So you know how the Bush administration has done absolutely nothing productive related to climate change these last eight years? Yeah. (I just wrote a lengthy grad school paper about Kyoto, so it's fresh on the mind.) Well, he finished off the G8 summit with a "joke" about how shitty a job he's actually done. And no, it wasn't funny. It was just sad.



From the London Telegraph:

The American leader, who has been condemned throughout his presidency for failing to tackle climate change, ended a private meeting with the words: "Goodbye from the world's biggest polluter."

He then punched the air while grinning widely, as the rest of those present including Gordon Brown and Nicolas Sarkozy looked on in shock.

I wish I was making that up.
