The Ugliest American

I know they’re just stupid foreigners but the contrast is stark and nearly universal outside our borders.  Think George Bush is unpopular here (he is); go overseas and see what his popularity is like there.  To a man (or woman) everyone I have talked to who has been out of the country in the last few years reports the same thing:  Bush is really, really hated.  And world opinion, while not something that should guide this country’s every move, does have an impact and is important.

Thanks for the link Dave.

The thing is the people who support Bush couldn't give a rat's ass about public oppinion in either this nation, or any other nation.

The commies have been vanquished so there's no longer any need to pretend.

We are but peasants to them. Something to be controlled between coups - to be more civilized might we use the term stolen elections instead?

The next one is already ready for 2008.

And those dumbasses which still support Bush are probably just chomping at the bit - wishing in some way that our military could be used to go teach em' a lesson too - just like we taught the terrorist in Iraq a lesson - yee ha!
