Politics, lightly.

This guy we have in charge of our country really makes me laugh sometimes.

Bush flies to Europe to try to build up his burned bridges again, and starts his trip by dining with French President Jacques Chirac – before anything else – because he wants everyone to know how much France’s opinion means to him.

In fact, according to Bush himself (and CNN.com), this initial dinner is essentially to show…

“how important” his relationship with Chirac is “for me personally … and for my country.”

“Every time I meet with Jacques, he’s got good advice,” Bush said, turning to Chirac. “I’m looking forward to listening to you.”

I’m looking forward to listening to you? Where was this talk two years ago, when France thought maybe a war in Iraq wasn’t such a great idea? Why wasn’t Chirac’s advice so good then? I’m curious to see what Bush has to say when he lands in Germany and Slovakia to meet with the other major powers who worked against the war in Iraq. I can’t wait to hear what wonderful advice they had that was so crucial that Bush openly fought against it, as if reeling off his immortal line “either you’re with us, or you’re against us” was good enough to get everyone in line.

Anyway, enough about politics. I hate talking that stuff – I’m ill equipped to think logically about it, so I don’t bother to enter the field.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not apathetic about what drives our country. I just don’t care much for getting fired up about something that a lot of people get fired up more effectively about.

Or something like that.

On a side note, did you hear that Bush smoked pot and hates gays? Rumors all, but still, interesting to think about. Why this guy would pass up millions of dollars and give all these ‘secret tapes’ to Bush himself is beyond me. He’s on TV, talking talking talking, and then all of a sudden, he’s clamming up and saying “I don’t want this to be a distraction, I’d better just give these to Bush!” I wonder what ideas got into HIS head.

In other news, Paris Hilton was hacked. Thank you, CNN Money.
