just … weird

The whole thing about the President giving an impromtu neck/shoulder massage to the German Chancellor at the G-8 summit is just so very strange as to defy belief. The Daily Show had a bit on it last night – Emma asked firstly whether Bush would have done this to a male head of state, and secondly whether there’s a White House or kind of World Leader HR rep Chancellor Merkel could have called.

Merkel’s reaction is quite a sight too, and I just saw a photo which likens Bush’s action and her reaction to another famous neck maneouver. Also I wonder if Bush was tempted to say “Whoa, this kitten’s got claws!”
