Bush to Syria to Hezbollah: "Stop Doing This Shit."
A teeny-tiny secret microphone--in Russia, no less!--caught President George W. Bush swearin' like the Vice President at the Group of Eight summit meeting in St. Petersburg. Reuters reports that in a lunch conversation with Brit PM Tony Blair, Bush said Syria should lean on Hezbollah to "stop doing this shit." Bush also said Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would likely go to the Middle East soon (seeing as U.S. secretarys of state always do so well there).
Reuters also reports that when the longtime Mister Microphone buff realized his conversation was being broadcast, Bush seized the mike and pronounced to a surprised Junichiro Koizumi "Hey good-lookin', we'll be back to pick you up later."--Nick Gillespie
