More trees, less Bush (commentary)

While playing online backgammon the other day, someone commented on my username (which combines "realgrouchy" and "canada" in an entirely unimaginitive way).

Their comment was, "What do you have to be grouchy about up there? At least you don't have Bush."

As much as I hate to chat while playing online games (after all, I don't go into other people's chatrooms and start playing backgammon), in this case I couldn't help but give a clever and concise reply à la moi:

"His foreign policy."

Executive decision (announcement)

After a discussion with my style consultant, I have decided to grow my beard out.

Bush diagnosed with Schizophrenia (commentary)

Shaath, now the Palestinian information minister, said: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I'm driven with a mission from God'".

"'God would tell me, 'George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan'.

"'And I did. And then God would tell me, 'George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq... ' And I did.

"'And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, 'Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East'. And by God I'm gonna do it'," said Shaath.

... and then God said, "George, you're putting too much pressure on yourself. Go take five weeks off, and start paying yourself more."

Need I say, 8P.

Ahahahahahaha.... but seriously, drop the tariffs (commentary)

Okay, so Paul Martin is talking to a bunch of Wall Street peeps about the US softwood lumber tariffs, and guess what he says:

"These tariffs make your lumber companies happy - American consumers and workers, not so happy,"

Next, he'll be meeting with the leaders of the Canadian Media Guild to tell them that this whole strike thing is putting pressure on CBC managerial staff!
