George W. Bush and Bill Clinton in Surrey: satire
11:30 The Vancouver Observer has managed to get past security at the entrance to the Surrey Regional Economic Summit 2011 and is sitting in the front row of the George W. Bush-Bill Clinton speeches.
Bush is getting misty-eyed. Bush is giving Clinton a "Best Friends Forever" necklace made out of gold. He tells the audience of BC business representatives that it was made from melted down artifacts taken the National Museum of Iraq raid that followed the Shock And Awe campaign.
More coming. (Please don't tell security we're in here.)
11:45 Bush grimmaces, recounting how, while Shock and Awe, was going on, he was golfing to let some steam off, nearly made a Birdie but missed it. People around me us are getting very agitated as he recounts how close the ball got to the hole. Clearly, they relate to the former President's sense of loss.
