Sick and Tired

Well, the news this morning is disturbing.

Our president is ill, feeling a bit weak in the stomach. It's so bad he has to skip one of the G8 sessions.

What could be behind such a tragedy?

It happened while he met with the new French leader, Nicholas Sarkozy. One wonders if even this guy, the most pro-American Frenchman since Lafayette, STILL made the commander in chief ill with his talk of croissants and escargot.

Myriad possibilities exist. Maybe it was bad eggs at breakfast. Maybe it's the stomach flu. Maybe he's disgusted by Bono without sunglasses.

But I suspect another cause.

It was just yesterday that Bush spent hours and hours with Russian President Putin. Sure, they may have resolved the missile defense dilemma, preventing a return to the Cold War ... but there's something about Putin that's just hard to trust.

I've got one word for you, G.W.:

Putin scares me with his rhetoric. Maybe it's the accent and me watching too many Bond movies.

I think there's a conspiracy to attack our greatest assets: first, Paris gets sick and now GW.

Putin is quite an intimidating character, I give Bush a lot of credit for meeting with him in the first place.

Bono's not wearing his shades?

Did he eat any broccoli like his daddy did?

Yikes. That a scary thought now, isn't it?

"Do you expect me to talk, Mr. Putin?"

"No, Mr. Bush, I expect you to die!"

*evil laugh*

BV, Jeff: I've heard rumors that Putin breathes fire and cuts through opponents' very souls with his laser vision.

GN: Not to mention what they're doing to the legacy of Thomas Jefferson.

Layla: Look on for a story yesterday... something about Bono being so angry about G8 leaders not doiing what he--in his political wisdom, naturally--believes shoudl be done that he took off his trademark uber-shades to speak out abotu it.

Bruce: Too much broccoli can, indeed, upset the stomach. Just like polonium, only broccoli gives you more gas.

PQ: I'm full of scary thoughts. It hurts my relationships, but helps my sci fi/fantasy writing.

I thought the one word would've been Vodka.

But yeah, at least he didn't vomit on the guy.

Vomitting on somebody would have at least been interesting and newsworthy.

Perplexio: Putin does look eerily like Auric Goldfinger....

Missy: I've finally done it! Despite my best intentions, I've prodded someone to seek further information and expand their mind. Damn!

OMW: I'm not sure Putin would be able to push a guy who doesn't drink to get vomiting drunk on vodka. But he's tricky, so it's possible.

Linda: I think we've all seen enough replays of the first Bush presidency's unfortunate vomiting incident to last us a lifetime.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I'd feel awful sick to my stomach if I pissed off Russia. Today Russia, tomorrow China?

Wow how diabolical of you!

And here I was thinking it might just be too much Russian vodka..

But I though they has such a good time looking into each other's souls it was time for a wedding shower.

I think he's just too glued to watching E! keeping up with the Paris Hilton news to be bothered with the G8 crap.

Grafs: I fell sick to my stomach just thinking about it.

Lisa: Diabolical? Me? Gosh, that's just silly.

GW: For some reason, as I read your comment my mind flashed back 15 years to the group De La Soul, the band that hit it big with "Me, Myself and I." I know you didn't mean to do that ...

Fuzz: Well, that's understandable. Maybe he's looking for tips to give his daughters on how to let loose a little.

I hope he didn't miss the session where everyone votes on who has to return the kegger and the tap for the deposit.

I missed that once at my fraternity and they all voted for me, ex parte.

That was a bummer, dude.

Just dropping in with a smile and hug to say hello!

Lee Ann: Welcome back--thanks for brightening everyone's day!

You may not be far off with the French food theory--it took me several months to get used to the French diet without feeling constantly sick. It's gotten to the point now where I consider a big steak dinner to be more of a light snack.
