Two days after the fact, Senior Middle East Analyst Charles Johnson finally got around to mentioning Dubya's Sword Dance with his BFFs in Saudi Arabia.
A sampling of the lizards' reactions:
traitor ... Stop it, George. Just stop it. ... It's idiocy such as this that gave Ron Paul room to run. ... what did he say he wanted his legacy to be? Totally selling out Israel for his Saudi buds? ... Today I am embarrassed to be an American. ... Primitive tribal dance. This is a disgrace. ... Just keep on yukking it up, you filthy excuse for a President of the United States. ... God DAMN! What the fuck is WRONG WITH HIM? ... Does our President have NO shame? ... I just threw up a little in my mouth. ... what an ass, i personally cant think of anythingbad [sic] enough to call him or the ass who sells us hte [sic] oil ... Insanity all around. Laura Bush is numb too, with her hijab disgrace... What the hell was she thinking? And now her husband does even worse. ... He's sickening. I think every move Bush has made has been at the behest of his Saudi masters, including invading Iraq and getting rid of that troublemaking Saddam. ... I think Bush must be saying "Allahu Akbar" in between yuks. ... he looks drugged. so awkward and goofy. another propaganda coup for the enemy ...
and so on.
And the winner is:
You know I was a big I mean big supporter of Bush. I worked at a TV station and God knows I took my share of crap defending him. But now I think he is just a spoiled rich kid. he reminds me of the son of the guy that ran and owned a good portion of the place. Daddy gave him everything. He was a total dumbshit who thought he knew it all and daddy of course backed his every stupid move. God if Democrats where not such total wastes of breathable air they could have beat him in the last election lesser of to evils is getting old in the elections for sure
To us, the only surprise is that any lizard could possibly have been surprised by any of this.
