Albania loves Bush

ABC (US) News’ World News Tonight reported that George Bush received “a rock star welcome” when he visited Albania. Apparently, they don’t get many visitors there, because the Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha said through a translator:

Among us, this is the greatest and most distinguished guest we have ever had in all times.

They love Bush and his
Iraq war in Albania. They’ve even put his face on a postage stamp. He’s said to be so popular with ordinary Albanians that they expect a rash of babies named “George”.

So: Any chance we could send George to
Albania permanently? Now? Please? And would he mind terribly taking Joe “Attack Iran” Lieberman with him?

hahahaha! That is hilarious! It reminds me of the people in the Dilbert commercials with the giant beards who are always standing in flood waters....don't know any Albanians, but they can't be bright, can they? Or maybe the translator misunderstood?

Maybe we've been getting the whole "George Bush is an idiot" thing wrong all of these years.

Perhaps he is a native Albanian speaker and it's only the translation of his thoughts into English that make them sound stupid?

Just a thought.

D: One wonders what the education system in Albania is like, I think.

Daniel: That's it! No wonder we couldn't figure out how such a moron got to be president--we just didn't understand the translation!
