Bush Uses ‘the Google’

Click here to see the video of Bush describing how he uses “the Google” on the internets.

HOST: I’m curious, have you ever googled anybody? Do you use Google?

BUSH: Occasionally. One of the things I’ve used on the Google is to pull up maps. It’s very interesting to see — I’ve forgot the name of the program — but you get the satellite, and you can — like, I kinda like to look at the ranch. It remind me of where I wanna be sometimes.

America May Penalise Iraq If It Fails To Stop the Violence

From the Telegraph:

President George W Bush met his top generals to discuss the deteriorating situation in Iraq as it was reported that America is considering punishing Baghdad if it fails to meet deadlines to stop the violence.

The new policy would mark a dramatic shift from the previous position that progress could only be determined by the “situation on the ground”.

Instead benchmarks would be set covering progress in the Iraqi military, police and economy that if missed would result in the imposition of “penalties” by Washington.

These would include “changes in military strategy”, which could mean troop cuts or redeployment within Iraq, or the removal of ministers deemed incompetent or corrupt.

Winning a Marathon on Your Ass

Robert Cheruiyot held off fellow Kenyan Daniel Njenga to win the Chicago Marathon on Sunday, taken from the course in a wheelchair after slipping and banging his head near the finish line.

Cheruiyot, winner of this year’s Boston Marathon, stayed down for several minutes after hitting his head. He was placed in a golf cart and headed to a hospital for a precautionary exam. Race officials said he was not seriously injured.
