Bubble-boy Bush Pleads With Poodle Blair ...
Almost indecently soon after abandoning Britons to the tender mercies of the chaos & carnage which was Katrina - along with Australians, Canadians and hundreds of thousands of his fellow Americans - the philanderer-in-chief suddenly, can't cozy up quickly nor close enough to the British Premier.
But as per usual, there's method in this man's madness - though it's difficult to determine where the shrub comes by such shameless cheek.
Bare faced bloody gaul?
Read this remarkable report re; the beleaguered bubble-boy.

Bush begs Blair for support over Katrina
By Vincent Moss
EMBATTLED George Bush is begging Tony Blair to "pull him out of a hole" by backing his handling of the New Orleans crisis.
Well, they do say every dog has it's day.
But a president ... pleading with his poodle ?
Nonetheless, pathetically pitiful though it appears, it certainly sums up GWB's current self inflicted, sad-sac situation.
Oh, the irony of it all. A turd asks a turd for assistance -- with, of all things, an excrement extraction exercise.
Priceless, eh ?
But back to Vincent Moss, in the Mirror.
The Prime Minister flies to New York on Tuesday for a United Nations summit where he will meet the US President.But what about the best bit ?
Mr Blair's allies are desperately urging him to avoid publicly supporting Mr Bush who has faced an avalanche of criticism over the bungled relief operation after Hurricane Katrina.
But the White House is determined to use the huge respect Mr Blair commands in the States to bolster Mr Bush by supporting his stewardship of the disaster.
Officials at Number Ten were this weekend trying to find a solution to the diplomatic minefield.
One senior Government source admitted: "There is pressure from America to pull Bush out of a hole over New Orleans."
"But is very difficult to pour praise on a relief operation which was so clearly flawed. It would make us look ridiculous."Sadly but probably not surprisingly, This Old Brit hasn't yet been asked [officially] how he sees it -- neither by Blair personally nor indeed by any of his New Labour, band of brothers.
What a pity they don't realise Richard has a ready made, reply-on-a-plate for the pratt.
And while it's by no means original - as Bush's callous and criminal co-conspirator, Cheney can quite confidently confirm, it is a fast becoming, famously fashionable phrase.
For if This Old Brit were Blair, here's what he would say.
Go fuck yourself, George.
