Embarrassing - or Funny?

My whole day was a total wash -- did nothing constructive whatsoever. Even the news was boring - well, except for the fiasco our esteemed government put on trying to impress the visiting Chinese President, Hu Jintao.

Of course they put on the red carpet treatment - - well -- they played the freakin' wrong National Anthem -- geez! How embarrassing is that! There's no excuse for that kind of stupidity, not for such an event. Guess they just saw the word "China" and that was close enough.

Then there was poor lady protester/reporter. How could they possibly let a protester in! She's facing arrest and serious charges! Ah-em -- freedom of speech? She spoke out?

Then I even heard that there was a CNN reporter who also got himself removed from a photo op because he dared ask a question.

If all this wasn't enough, Bush grabbed the dude's arm -- check out this photo:
Well, yes, I think there was a little Photoshop going on. Too funny.

Then to add insult to irreparable injury -- get a load of our most esteemed Vice-President and Secretary of State during the meeting with our honored guest!

It's just too funny to be sad! Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall to hear President Hu Jintao when he gets back home!

No wonder Scotty's got such an ear to ear grin on his face!
