Dubya's Democracy Occupation; and Friday Hometown Blogging

I often wonder how Bush says most of what he says with a straight face. For instance, here's Bush doing his stern act regarding Syria's occupation of Lebanon:

Dubya's Democracy Occupation

Part of New York City too.
On Long Island, yet not of it.
I'm confused as hell. Are you? ...
The rest of my Baysider's Ode To Queens is here.
