Today's quote of the day comes from president Bush illustrating to us all that we must never forget serious problems between Israel and Palestine always have a lighter side. Here, joking about Israeli checkpoints, Bush quipped:
“You’ll be happy to know, my whole motorcade of a mere 45 cars was able to make it through without being stopped but I am not sure if that happens to the average person.”
(Source: Democracy Now! via president Bush, of course.)
About the voice that supposedly originated from those Iranian speedboats acting provocatively towards Bush's navy recently in the Strait of Hormuz that said ominously to our fleet, "I am coming to you," and moments later, "You will explode after a few minutes:"
As we have now learned (well, I don't know for sure if CNN or MSNBC covered this - they were busy covering the murder of a pregnant Marine) the Pentagon is now denying those speedboats as the source of those threats we all heard.
Well, I was just wondering, is it just me, or did those threats sound a lot like vice-president Cheney speaking with a bad accent through a hollow tube with wax paper over one end?
