As you've no doubt heard by now, George W. Bush said a bad word today.
It wasn't meant to be overheard. Private luncheon conversations among world leaders, picked up by a microphone, provided a rare window into both banter and substance — including President Bush cursing Hezbollah's attacks against

Bush expressed his frustration with the United Nations and his disgust with the militant Islamic group and its backers in Syria as he talked to British Prime Minister Tony Blair during the closing lunch at the Group of Eight summit.

"See the irony is that what they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this (expletive) and it's over," Bush told Blair as he chewed on a buttered roll.

Now you may recall that this has happened before.
The Republican presidential candidate George W Bush has said he regrets the fact that people heard him make an insulting comment about a journalist, but he refused to apologise.

Just before a campaign speech in Illinois, Mr Bush said to his running mate Dick Cheney: "There's Adam Clymer, major league asshole from the New York Times."

Mr Bush later said he did not realise that live microphones were going to pick up the remark, but he stopped short of an actual apology.

Honestly, I don't care that he said "shit," or "asshole." Hell, he could have said "fuck" and it wouldn't make any difference to me. God knows I've said much worse. But the media sure had a field day with this latest gaffe. They were like a bunch of little kids who just heard the teacher slip up - "tee hee, he said shit!"

But as usual, the media has completely missed the boat. Instead of spending their day wetting themselves over the fact that Georgieboy said a naughty word, they could have spent it pointing out what a hypocritical bastard he is. For years we've been hearing about how the Republican party is the party of higher morals. (Yeah, I know, it's bullshit but that doesn't stop them from saying it.) They are supposedly the party of good Christian values. In fact, Bush has even claimed that he appeals to "a higher Father." So I wonder what that higher father has to say about words like "shit" and "asshole." From Ephesians 4:29:
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

And from James 3:9-12:
9With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God's likeness. 10Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be. 11Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

So as I see it, there's no doubt about it. He's going to burn in hell. I'm sure the media will be all over this tomorrow.
