Not Bad for a "Moron"

Blogizdat linked to this Reuters article on Dick Gere's arrogant, self-important attempt to put himself up on a pedestal by claiming to be the world's spokesman. I'm sure his monumental ego was deflated a bit by the fact that the Palestinians have never heard of him. After all, he's a famous actor and world spokesman. How could they not know him?

Not surprisingly, Reuters managed to slip an anti-Bush comment into the article:

"I don't even know who the candidates are other than Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas), let alone this Gere," Gaza soap factory worker Manar an-Najar told Reuters on Wednesday.

"We don't need the Americans' intervention. We know who to elect. Not like them -- they elected a moron."
It sounds like Mr. Manar an-Najar has been reading Reuters.

By the way, that "moron" he referred to has managed to kick the collective butts of:

Ann Richards, John McCain, Al "Internet" Gore, the Taliban, al-Qaeda, Sadam Hussein (and his sons Uday and Ebay, or something like that), Tom Daschel, John "Efenheimer" Kerry, (don't you wish they would), Michael Moore and the combined efforts of the Left-stream Media.

Not bad for a "moron".
