Bush takes comedy show on the road

bush1.jpg  George W. Bush may be one of the greatest comedians of this, or indeed any other, age.

In one brief speech to the APEC conference in Sydney, he managed to mount a  routine unparalleled in the history of comedy. Highlights include:

  • Confusing APEC with OPEC;
  • Referring to Australian troops as Austrians; and
  • Walking the wrong way offstage and stumbling around confused until rescued by reliable straightman and Australian (Austrian?) PM John Howard. 

Here's the video of the greatest exit ever:

Man. After all that, what the heck do you do for an encore? Bomb Iran? Hilarious!

Until you realize this man is the President of the United States. Sweet Jesus.
