    I love Trahant's smile when posing the question. Being "given" sovereignty was surely a nice gesture on the part of the US government. I mean, Indians didn't have it before did they?

    This reminds me of the joke of what Indians called America before white people showed up.

    Either way, typical non-response from a non-president.

    He has to be the Jerk of the Century, winning hands down.

    But, at the same time, that complete lack of ability is what made him successful coming up in politics.

    He would repeat the same 5 talking points over and over. He wasn't tempted, as a smart person might be, to go off script and actually speak.

    It was repeat, repeat, repeat, and in an American campaign, that's successful.

    OK, Bush is a moron. We have a moron running our country. We have a moron in charge of nuk-ul-ear weapons. We have a moron in charge of our economy. He's an embarassment. I cringe when I see those clips. But be afraid. Because he is a malevalent moron.

    But there's some hope for optimism. Because at the same time he is an incompetent moron. Meaning, he's a moron who may not be able to accomplish all the malevolence he would like, because he's incompetent.

    OK, I spelled malevolent wrong. Sue me.

    The inaugural 'Arse of the month' award goes to our very own Scottish First Minister Jack (Joke) McConnell. He seems to spend a lot of his time sucking up to english politicians and yet it appears they don't even know his name. Follow the link to see..
