Whether Bush is just simply unable to string together an etiquette appropriate speech in front of the Knesset celebrating Israel's 60th Independence celebration or if this was a calculated political stab at the Dems, it doesn't matter. It provided easy fodder for Obama and really further alienates any 'fence-riding' Repubs looking to distance themselves from Bush. McCain did not help matters either with his retorts. This is going to be an interesting run particularly if Obama gets to face Bush at any time, for he would surely humiliate the Prez., quite easily. Georgie is best to keep his mouth shut, ride out his lame-duck term and leave the talking to McCain if the GOP wants to hold onto any chance of winning in Nov.

It was quite amusing to watch syndicated radio personality Kevin James get smacked-down by Chris Matthews on Hardball May15th, 2008. We have been quite tolerant of chattering 'experts' who's academic background leave much to be desired but enough is enough. If you are going to comment on something for public consumption, please do your homework or keep your mouth shut. Unfortunately I am sure that most 'reporters' or commentators put to this test would fail miserably and worse, most consumers will not even notice.
What about bloggers? Shouldn't we too be held to this standard?
