Loosening Up the G8?


Now I'm going to need to check with my wife on this... but Angela doesn't look too happy and part of me thinks the problem is really just with Bush's technique.

He's just showing that he can treat her like one of the guys. He's always Giving Cheney and Rummy back rubs, it is Bush's way of saying he approves.

Marc said...

Well there was that time he kissed Condi.

BA said...

I just wish we had footage of him slapping Hariet Myers on the butt.

reason # 1,398 that I hate his evil, lying face!

Marc said...

Hey Hannity, we're not talking about his face here... we're talking about those rough cowboy hands.

tigerfoxbear said...

Marc, now I would never attempt to pretend I know/care/think about politics as much as you do, but I must correct you here...Hannity, likes Bush, he is one of the few. You should know that, he is the guy you secretly get up at 3:00 am to watch on FOX News. Sorry to blow your cover, "I'm studying dude, every night at 3:00 am I get up to study, I promise".

TFB... you pretending you're not Republican is like Tom Cruise pretending he's not gay... COME OUT OF THE CLOSET ALREADY!

Mrs. McDreamy said...

She has textbook "heebie jeebies" if I've ever seen it.

Tom Cruise? Gay? I'm shocked.

Sheldon said...

I hadnt seen the Condi picture. I think you need to post this picture alongside the picture of Putin kissing the belly of that little kid. Some sort of gallery of weirdo G-8 pictures.

Then again, maybe this is some sort of intitiation ritual for G-8 first-timers... it was her first meeting, right???

Marc said...

Dr. McDreamy has diagnosed... textbook "heebie jeebies" it is ladies and gentleman.

Sheldon - So you're saying this was a hazing of sorts?

Well, I typically don't swoop down on my clients like a vulture in heat... and on the same note I've certainly never seen moves like that on a field mouse. But speaking as a trained professional in body language, I'm convinced that for a split second (slides #2 & 3) she almost let him keep going.

I saw this on the Daily Show. I'm embarrassed for him and for the whole of the United States. I cringe every time I see it. I can't think of a more inappropriate gesture (except maybe kissing her belly).

BA said...

I bet Gar can think of more inappropriate gestures...

Marc said...

Sue - I've seen it several times and I, like you, find myself cringing... but I have to say, I think BA is right about Gar.

What a catasrophe. I can't believe that World War III hasn't started already. I mean, what a complete idiot. I wish this man would just go away!

Marc said...

While I certainly disagree with many of his policies, outside of the Iraq war, a lot that's happened over the past few years isn't Bush's fault. September 11th would have still happened on Gore's watch, North Korea and Iran have long been problems, and Bush certainly isn't the cause of tensions between Israel and Lebanon. I'm no Bush fan. I didn't vote for the man), and I find myself shaking my head at a lot of things he says and does, but I'm not sure how helpful it is to demonize him. I think he's sincere in wanting to do what he thinks is best for the country. If the Democrats disagree with him on that vision, they're the ones that need to do a lot better job of fielding some viable candidates.

Marc, when I read your last comment, I swear I heard Sen. Kennedy gain 5 more lbs! What you have said is basically political heresey! I know that you will be reigned back in when Mike Moore gives you a phone call sometime later tonight, but I just wanted to let you know that I won't forget the day your eyes kind of opened for a split second....

Marc said...

Well maybe "secretly getting up at 3:00 a.m. to watch FOX News" is beginning to have an effect on me? Naww... That can't be it. If that were the case then all I'd be talking about is the justifications for Israel's recent offensive, the liberal media, flag-burning, illegal immigrants, gay marriage, and Natalie Holloway.

Speaking of Putin and heebie jeebies (not to mention a possible reference to the tummy smooch), here's a memorable quote from the apparently lovable Ruskie:

"I can't remember exactly when I did it for the first time...but I certainly remember when I did it the last time, to the exact minute."

Ruminate on that one for a moment...

Gargantus said...

I think he should have given her a noogie, that would have been totally bitchin!

Marc said...

Hobby - Quit being so hard on the man... can you REALLY remember the first time you had sex? [I expect every person who reads this other than Pete to say yes to this question]
