Insensitive Asinine Gobshite

Spent most of the weekend offline and haven't checked in on the blogvines since the middle of last week, so I missed the reports of Dubya's disgusting behaviour at the Correspondent's Dinner in Washington last Wednesday.

(Thanks to my cousin, Adam Maguire, for filling in the gap in my outrage, btw).

The BBC report does a good job of capturing his antics:

At a black-tie dinner for journalists, Mr Bush narrated a slide show poking fun at himself and other members of his administration.

One pictured Mr Bush looking under a piece of furniture in the Oval Office, at which the president remarked: "Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be here somewhere."

After another one, showing him scouring the corner of a room, Mr Bush said: "No, no weapons over there," he said.

And as a third picture, this time showing him leaning over, appeared on the screen the president was heard to say: "Maybe under here?"

I've wailed and ranted about the Resident before, but he continues to amaze me with just how incredibly crass he can be (and his advisers, hangers-on, and assorted catamites for that matter). 

Making light of something like this is practically criminal. 

Doing it in front of the Correspondent's dinner is absolutely certifiable.

And doing so in the week that marks the anniversary of the invasion of Iraq is clear evidence that the man is way past the point of no return and a howling mad, premier league asshat without an ounce of moral sense or sensitivity.

Please God let the American people some how manage to have an unprecedented outbreak of coordinated common sense on November 2nd.
