    I thought that was hilarious, so I looked it up and apparently it was made up by a journalist; he never actually said it. Shame, actually, 'cause I really liked that one! Haha.

    I liked it when Bush hinted that he and Tony Blair are like two peas in a pod--because they both use Colgate toothpaste!

    The next time these crooks leave the country, someone needs to hijack them and take them to the Hague to try them on war crimes. I'd love to see Bush stutter and slur his way outta that.
