Discussion in 'Europe' started by onedomino, Jan 30, 2005.
Appearing in a newspaper that is further to the left than Pravda, we have this item:
"Mr. Bush is due to have dinner with Mr. Chirac in Brussels on the eve of his visit."
What many politicians would give to have a plate at that dinner! The conversation between Bush and Chirac will probably be civil, but their private thoughts would be priceless to listen to!
What is this "unifying agenda" that would work to keep the French in line?
Does anyone have any thoughts on the progress (or lack of) of the Oil-for-Food investigation? Because, if it's done thoroughly and honestly, I've got a feeling that Chirac's "heroic" anti-war stance is going to take on a decidedly unappetizing stench.
Is this investigation going to do a Sandy Berger, or what?
It will be up to Fox News, talk radio and the bloggers to keep the heat turned up and not let "Oil for Food" fall through the cracks. I doubt that the NYT, Washington Post, CNN, CBS, etc., will spend any more journalistic energy on "Oil for Food" than is absolutely necessary, although it's one of the biggest stories to fall in their laps in years. If the culprit in the "Oil for Food" story was the Bush Administration, you can bet we would be barraged with articles daily.
Bush and Chirac at dinner as the first course is brought out:
Chirac: 'Mon duei, non, we did not order zis!'
Bush: 'Oh looksie, here, Frenchie. That there is a heapin' pile of crow, special order from Iraq.'
Chirac: 'Oooh La La!'
Bush: 'Eat up, froggie'
Annan rolled a few expendable heads, and started talking about Sudan instead of Iraq. No word from the UN on the recent elections.
And NYC still lists members of the UN as having outstanding balance on parking tickets.
'And that's the way it is...'
Last I heard, the FBI is still looking for a volunteer to hunt around Bergers pants in search of the now rancid documents. :teeth:
According to Ann Coulter, the least important news story of 2004 (if mainstream media coverage is the determining factor) was the curious case of a Clintonite trying to get into his OWN pants!
