Adam Felber Muses on World Events (Updated) 4

Looking at the release of the British sailors, at Saudi King Abdullah’s Middle East peace efforts, and Nancy Pelosi’s travels, he asks

Can the entire planet do an end-run around the Bush administration and Al Qaeda and figure out a way to repair the world? And if we can, how will the Bush administration take credit for it?

And do they deserve credit for it?

Anyone who’s ever had a completely incompetent high school teacher or a totally boneheaded and lazy coach for their sports team understands this – eventually, you and your friends realized that in the end you’d be judged by an objective standard – the other team, the standardized test…

(Aside: Regarding Ms. Pelosi’s trip, if Republicans can do it, Democrats can also. After all, visiting world leaders is not the same as firing competent public servants or selling the government to the highest bidder, despite the Bushie spin.)

Addendum, 4/5/07:

    Anyone who can look at these three events and see a pattern leading to peace is certainly… well… a “free thinker,” shall we say.

    Why Pelosi would want to be seen in public with a Jew-hater like Bashir Assad is beyond me but I hope she had quick access to a shower after she met with him.

    And is this King Abdullah from the same Saudi royal family as the Saudi royal family the Bushes are supposed to be unhealthily close to? Someone call Michael Moore and see.

    Nancy Pelosi needs to stay home. After hearing the Israeli PM’s remarks after her “visit”, I don’t think the grandmother from San Francisco needs to be allowed out by herself.

    Make that “the multimillionaire grandmother from San Francisco,” by the way…

    Money doesn’t equate brains, not all the time, anyway.
