Bush Awaits

During one of his several dozen vacations, George Bush was apparently reading Camus' The Stranger. That was funny, not just because it meant Bush and Nilu shared the honour of being the last 2 guys in the free world to discover Camus, but also because the book is about a white guy killing an Arab without any reason.

So as much as I await the release of the movie 300, based on Frank Miller's graphic novel about the Battle of Thermopylae, I know that my eagerness can not be a patch on that of George Bush's. A movie about 300 white guys slaughtering Persian hordes led by a delusional megalomaniac? A movie in which the Persian King's "immortal" personal guards (much like the Iranian Quds revolutionary guard) get their asses handed to them?

Get the popcorn, Condi.
