Timeline Shows McCain and Bush Terrific Tag Team

with 3 comments

A time line of the events of the recent clash between Russia and Georgia reveals that Bush and McCain work as a well oiled tag team and as a country we can look forward to a smooth transition between the two Presidents.

August 4th: Bush goes to China to watch the Olympics.  He charms Chinese by joking “How do they fit all the horses in the pool for the water polo match?”  They laugh and with timing like Carson Bush follows up with, “What’s so funny?”

August 8th – Georgia sends troops into two breakaway province of South Ossetia and begins shelling capital hours after a cease fire with separatists is announced.

August 8th – Bush averts controversy by being totally mesmerized by the fireworks at the opening ceremony and failing to notice that the 9 year old singer was actually lip syncing because the actual 7 year old singer had to be replaced when a party official noticed she wasn’t a particularly cute child.  “It was for the national interest,” said Chen Qigang the musical director. “The child on camera should be flawless in image, internal feelings and expression.”

August 8th – Russia sends troops into South Ossetia to defend Russian citizens.  They carry this defense further by attempting to bomb the oil pipeline through Georgia.

August 9th – McCain researches Georgia on the internets.  Despite people putting down McCain’s technical acumen, he gets a fairly thorough synopsis of history and relevant issues from Wikipedia.

August 10th – Bush Cheers on Michael Phelps and inspires him to a gold medal and new world record in the 400 meter medley.  Phelps later calls seeing the President cheering him on a “very emotional moment.”

August 11th – Using the research he had done on Wikipedia, John McCain gives a riveting and forceful book report/ speech on the Georgia conflict threatening Russia and calling for a ceasefire.

August 12th – Cowed by McCain’s speech the Russians back down and declare a ceasefire with Georgia.

  1. You know, right, that McCain’s foreign policy advisor is a lobbyist for Geogia. As McCain said, “ich bin ein Georgian.”

  2. The correct German term would be “ich bin ein Georgier”, but never mind. I’m a new time reader and first time commenter, and from Switzerland, so please excuse my bad English.

  3. Now Nate sure has gone international! I’m sure Nate prefers Swiss people to Brazilians, since the former are whiter and richer (though less of a franchise possibility for republicans).
    You know, Nate, in my blog, when I travel, I always leave pre-written posts programmed to be published on certain days. So my readers won’t miss me so much.
