What me govern?

What, me govern?

President George Dubya Bushtarsky

Undeclares War on Japan

Hey, do you remember "Bluto Blutarsky," the character that John Belushi played in the hilarious satire Animal House? Do you remember one of the great lines that jumped out of the college fraternity moron's mouth: "Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?"

And do you remember the "Where-are-they-now note at the end of the movie that said Bluto Blutarsky wound up elected to the U.S. Senate?

Once again, life imitates art. It seems that President George Dubluto Bushtarsky also doesn't know who bombed Pearl Harbor. According to the speech he delivered to the Japanese Diet on Feb. 18, 2002, the United States and Japan have been "enduring" allies now for "a century and a half."

So that other drunken frat slob, Bluto Blutarsky must have been right after all - it was the Germans who bombed Pearl Harbor.

Here's what the idiot (Bush, not Belushi) said in the 4th paragraph of his speech before the Japanese Diet:

"My trip to Asia begins here in Japan for an important reason. (Applause.) It begins here because for a century and a half now, America and Japan have formed one of the great and enduring alliances of modern times."

See for yourself, President Bushtarsky's flub is here on a U.S. State Department web page* At least the Shrub didn't do what his Daddy did and throw up on the Japanese Prime Minister.

America truly is a great land. It's a country where stupid substance abusing slobs can grow up to become U.S. Senators (in the movies) and President (in real life.)

* In case Bush's Ministers of Truth notice that they forgot to alter the copy of Bush's speech at the State Department's web site, I've archived a copy here. Think I'm kidding? The Ministers of Truth already altered the transcript of the speech at the White House web site! I've preserved the original along with the revisionist version. And of course, there's the actual soundbite that's not so easily altered by the Bush administration's Ministers of Truth:
