What Bush said...

See, the irony is what they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this shit and it's over.

It was a private conversation between US President George Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

See - transcript courtesy of Washington Post

All the Australian media outlets (TV, radio and press) reported the conversation as is, with no fuss about the word "shit".

The US media on the other paw, emphasised Bush's 'cursing', 'expletive' etc and whether to censor it or not.

See for example - USA TODAY of 17 July 2006

Hello? There is something seriously wrong when the media think the issue is whether they should include or not include the word "shit".

The greater issue is the private opinions of two world leaders about the Hezbollah/Israel conflict and what it means.

And what about all the innocent civilians who are being killed? Imagine what they would be saying as the bombs hit - "oh shit, here comes a fucking bomb again". Yeah!

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


My human finished work half an hour earlier today and Malgosia gave him a car ride home so my human surprised me when he got home. It was great though as he gave me lots of hugs and cuddles before my dinner.

He had a steak for dinner tonight so I begged and begged until he relented and gave me three small bite sized pieces.
