Albanians swipe Bush's wristwatch
Goddamn thieving former Commies
The White House has denied reports that enthusiastic Albanians greeted President Bush to their sun-kissed land by swiping his wristwatch. The alleged incident, captured by Albanian TV on Sunday and now featuring on YouTube, appears to show thieving former godless Commies relieving El Prez of his timepiece:
A White House spokesman simply said: "The President took his watch off." The video evidence, however, suggests otherwise:
Well, the jury's out. If the Albanians have indeed half inched Bush's watch, expect an indignant Condoleeeeza Rice threatening to cancel all of Tirana's McDonald's franchises until the culprit is handed over for rendition. ®
No proof on YouTube
That supposed "Flip Side" view of the watch being pocketed that was listed as being at <http://youtube.com/watch?v=PsTqEO6MHCU> has been yanked as being a copyright violation. Thus not only is there any proof, there is no proof that the URL originally pointed at such an alternate view (as opposed to something totally different with a yanked URL being posted as an unverifiable link to a supposed alternate viewpoint). NOTE: I am not claiming that there wasn't a clip there showing the match being pocketed but only stating that using the supplied URL will not NOW show such a video (and thus the claim that is does/did can not be verified),
Monika Stafa is hot ....
What gets me...
... is how did a crowd get that close to Bush? When he visited our city in Australia, the entire city centre was locked down, with road closures, barricades, special forces, and every cop in the city forming human cordons to keep people away.
Obviously Bush's security crowd don't delude themselves about his popularity in Western countries, but they can safely let him run loose in Balkan states since the citizens there probably don't know or care about his policies - they have enough problems of their own to worry about.
Would-be Bush assassins, take note...
