GWB visits Vienna, Austria

The Aardvark Speaks:

“Sealing off the entire Stephansplatz area for five hours tomorrow just so that Mrs. Bush can go visit St. Stephen’s Cathedral says a lot about the perceived self-importance of the American president and his wife. Since not even the Pope demanded that the inner city be emptied of people during his visit and the Pope supposedly ranks directly below God, this must mean that the American president and his wife rank somewhere in the supernatural sphere above God. Or that that at least they think they do. Or, if we all didn’t know that the president of the United States is a fearless pillar of courage, someone might suggest that they are simply very, very, very afraid.”
