In case you were wondering about the definition of irony...

Seriously, when I heard this last night, I thought it was made up. But apparently Pres. Bush actually said this to American troops in Afghanistan about two weeks ago:
"I must say, I'm a little envious," Bush said. "If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed."

"It must be exciting for you ... in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You're really making history, and thanks," Bush said.

Funny how he offered to work in Afghanistan instead of Iraq.

Jaw-dropping, really. He couldn't even be bothered to show up consistently for his guard duty. Was that not romantic enough for him? Does he think this is a movie? You know-some set everyone walks off when the cameras stop rolling?
