Much has been made of the the note President Bush was caught passing to Condi Rice during a security council meeting at the UN World Summit today, and I'm not going to pile on. Instead, I'm going to take issue with Reuters' caption of the photo. It is below:

US President George W. Bush writes a note to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during a Security Council meeting at the 2005 World Summit and 60th General Assembly of the United Nations in New York September 14, 2005. World leaders are exploring ways to revitalize the United Nations at a summit on Wednesday but their blueprint falls short of Secretary-General Kofi Annan's vision of freedom from want, persecution and war.

The obviously implication here is that perhaps if the President hadn't spent quite so much time peeing, the UN might have actually been able to free the world of want, persecution, and war. Give me a fucking break, Reuters. We're not children. We know the UN isn't going to free us from want, persecution, or war just like we know you can't make one of your wishes for more wishes.

On the other hand, I guess we'll never know for sure what President Pooperson might have done had he not been sitting on the pot. In the end, all I can say is thank God The Spoonbender's photographers were able to catch the first note Bush passed Condi.
