Let's eat!


I hope you didn’t share my experience, stumbling upon this carcass after viewing troubling images from Iraq, Gaza, Lebanon and northern Israel.

Digby had a great take on this pre-G-8 summit scene.  With crises cooking in North Korea, Iran and the Middle East, reporters were just looking for a few words of intelligence and reassurance from the Carver-In-Chief.  With no rehearsed answers available, however, Bush resorted to one of his uglier deflection strategies — being obnoxious.

The reaction from the man hiding behind the German Chancellor?  ‘So the world is burning.  Let’s eat!’
