Chimpy Hears a Hu

During a press conference after his meeting with Chinese President Hu Jintao, a reporter noted that Bush seemed a little "off his game."

"Sir, in your statement this morning with President Hu, you seemed a
little off your game; you seemed to hurry through it. There was a lack
of enthusiasm. Was something bothering you?" he asked.

To which he so rudely snapped back:

"Have you ever heard of jetlag?" Bush responded. "Well, good. That
answers your question."

What do you think has gotten Chimpy's goat? Could it be those sagging approval ratings? Is he irritated that China virtually own us? Or maybe that the press and Congressman Murtha can't stop talking about how invading liberating Iraq was a bad idea and we need to bring the troops home, when he wants all the attention during his Asian soiree?

Or maybe he just drunk and is disoriented.

When the reporter asked for "a very quick follow-up", Bush cut him off
and strode towards the locked doors.

"I was trying to escape. Obviously, it didn't work," Bush quipped, facing
reporters again until an aide rescued him by pointing him towards the
correct door.

That's our boy. A colossal embarrassment.

UPDATE: And here's the video of the colossal emabarrassement. Thanks to Ricky for pointing it out.
