193 days...

It just wouldn't be a G8 summit without Bush forgetting that he's not at some frat retreat and humiliating himself.

We all remember him deciding it would be a good idea to massage Angela Merkel last year and his embarrassing open mic conversation with Tony Blair. Well, he really went all out this year. First, his weird thing with Merkel continued as he caressed her hair this year. The look of contempt on her face is priceless which makes it a little strange that apparently she is publicly coming out against Obama making a speech in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, supposedly at Bush's request.

Then there was this from the Canadians.
A televised feed of the event showed Bush casually wrapping an arm around Nigerian President Umaru Yar'Adua and calling for Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper's attention.

"Yo, Harper. The president of Nigeria."

"Heh heh heh, can ya believe it? Yo, Harper! Check it out. Preznit of Nigeria right here."

But, the most embarrassing moment probably came as he was leaving the conference.
The American leader, who has been condemned throughout his presidency for failing to tackle climate change, ended a private meeting with the words: "Goodbye from the world's biggest polluter."

He then punched the air while grinning widely, as the rest of those present including Gordon Brown and Nicolas Sarkozy looked on in shock.

Oh my. It's like it could only be a parody of something he would do except he actually did it. I mean, I can just picture him "yeah, bra! World's largest polluter!" while punching the air with a big smirk on his face. I'm somewhat shocked he didn't make some sort of emissions control/fart joke just to really leave on a high note. "Heh heh heh...yo, Silvio! Pull my finger. Now I'm the world's biggest polluter. Heh heh heh."

I'm also curious about the punching of the fist in the air. Was this like the end of the Breakfast Club? His big triumphant moment where he gets to walk off into the sunset after finally showing them damn furriners what's what?

I honestly think being around all of these smart, capable leaders intimidates him and he responds by acting like the spoiled jackass he is. It's just so humiliating that this guy is our president and I'm embarrassed that the other leaders have to kiss his ass or even treat him as an equal.

Of course this is the same group who had an 18-course banquet to discuss the world food crisis so maybe they don't notice so much.

So, 193 days of this shit left. I'm convinced that it's only going to get worse. He's only got a few more months of being the most powerful asshole in the world and he's going to take full advantage to stick it in the eye of everyone he possibly can. I can only hope he keeps it to embarrassing exchanges like this and not, say, bombing Iran.
