The widening crisis in the Middle East took on graver proportions today when President George W. Bush indicated that if the hostilities continue, they could threaten his traditional August vacation at his Crawford, Texas, ranch.
At a press briefing at the White House, the president said that if Hezbollah continued its rocket attacks on Israel, he would see those attacks as "an assault on my vacation itself."
"Throughout the civilized world, my summer vacation has been considered sacrosanct," Mr. Bush told reporters. "The time has come for Hezbollah to recognize my vacation's right to exist."
I wish he would go clear brush until there ain't no more brush anywhere, and leave runnin' the world to adults. If there are any adults in government. Anybody but him would be an improvement, leaving Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al and other criminal conspirators out, of course.
