Bush’s Big Gay Spanish Wedding

Posted by on July 1 at 11:36 AM

I hope Bush realizes he deserves some of the credit for the great news today in Spain.

After all, Bush started the Iraq War, and roped in Spain’s former PM, Jose Maria Aznar, who obediently sent troops to Iraq.

But that pissed off the majority of Spaniards, who were against the Iraq war. They were even more incensed when al-Queda members killed 201 people in last year’s Madrid train bombingsending troops to Iraq certainly hadn’t made Spain any safer from terrorists.

So those smart Spaniards turned around and elected Zapatero. Who just led the charge to legalize same-sex marriage.

I should send GWB a thank you card.
