"Honey, I'm home!" (laughtrack)

Yes, it's time for another episode of earth's least favorite sitcom, "Life With Dubya."

Boy oh boy, was I hoping to come across some video of this presidential moment. Bush's entire Asian excursion was a profound embarrassment for the country, as he apparently went to Japan and China with one thing on his mind: kissing fundamentalist ass.

But the most cringe-inducing moment of the whole cringe-inducing fiasco was this snit-fit at a press conference in China. Showing once again that he can't function without a stacked deck, G-Dub snapped at a reporter like a surly adolescent, then managed to fumble with a (locked) door as he peevishly decided to take his ball and go home.

Must-see video that really brings home the terrifying comedy of this entire administration. You'll laugh-- oh, yes, you'll laugh. But try not to spend too much time thinking about it, because then the tears will come.

(I sure wish I could read the accompanying text, but I don't do Dutch. Het Flegma, are you out there?)
