Lieboy and Pickles Do 'Nam
Un-Curious George TANGAWOL finally made it to Vietnam. I'm surprised he didn't try out one of his Chickenhawk military costumes so he can misremember being "in uniform" in Vietnam. The PR and speech departments aren't with the 'Nam entourage. "It's just going to take a long period of time for the ideology that is hopeful and that is an ideology of freedom to overcome an ideology of hate." "We'll succeed unless we quit." Einstein travels overseas and takes Snowjob, Condi and Pickles for the ride. Which one of his travel group is #41's man?
He met with President Nguyen Minh Triet at the bright orange presidential palace, with Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung next door, and with the country's most powerful leader, Communist Party chief Nong Duc Manh, at the ruling party headquarters across the street. Each time, he and his hosts sat under a large bronze bust of Ho Chi Minh, the victorious North's revolutionary communist leader.
Pickles was sent to meet and greet youth. She looked as uncomfortable as she can while zoned out on her meds.
"For decades, you had been torn apart by war," Bush said, toasting his hosts. "Today the Vietnamese people are at peace and seeing the benefits of reform."
Whatever. The Bushes were wined and dined but didn't have the trade deal as a gift since the lame ducks didn't pass it. Needless to say throngs of well-wishers didn't turn out to throw candy and flowers at the chickenhawk warmonger. Georgie needs a drink.
Huynh Tuyet, 71, a North Vietnamese veteran who had his hand blown off fighting the Americans, recalled his own lesson. "Even though the Americans were more powerful with all their massive weapons, the main factor in war is the people," he said. "The Vietnamese people were very determined. We would not give up. That's why we won."
While others cut and run....
