Farewell, Tony Blair
Best British Prime Minister ever Tony Blair resigned today, leaving Number 10 Downing Street as the single most beloved Briton the world has known since charming, irascible drunk Arthur.
Except in England where everyone hates him. This, as you might have guessed, is our president's fault.
'Tony's had a great run and history will judge him kindly,'' Bush told Britain's The Sun tabloid in remarks published Wednesday. ''I've heard he's been called Bush's poodle. He's bigger than that.''
That's right, Bush's defense of Blair: he was more like Bush's St. Bernard.
Goodbye Tony Blair
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did
