Bush Insults Queen Elizabeth

I can't make this stuff up, lol! In a speech honoring Queen Elizabeth and celebrating the US alliance with Britain, the Chimperor misspoke and insinuated that Her Majesty was about 200 years older than she actually is. Citing the bicentennial celebrations in which the Queen participated, Bush said...

"The American people are proud to welcome your majesty back to the United
States, a nation you've come to know very well. After all you've dined with 10
U.S. presidents. You've helped our nation celebrate its bicentennial in 17 -- in

The Queen shot him a look that was absolutely hilarious, and Bush tried to save face. There was a pause in the speech during which the two exchanged facial expressions, and Bush continued...

"She gave me a look that only a mother could give a child," Bush said as the
crowd burst into laughter."

This is just another in a long list of incidents where Bush has embarrassed himself and, by extension, the United States. Kudos to the Queen for putting him in his place with that look...it speaks volumes, lol. Check out these other incidents...they're worth reading for a laugh or two...
