Bush, Without (Those) Clothes (Provided by the US Media)

Reported by Melanie - June 25, 2004 -

Jon Stewart (the host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show") was on Larry King Live tonight. Early in the show, CNN aired video of Bush being interviewed by Radio & Television Ireland reporter Carol Coleman. The video showed an irritated George Bush, being, in my opinion, mildly rude to Ms. Coleman.

According to a UPI report, Bush said,

"Let me finish. Let me finish. May I finish?" Bush said early in his interview with Radio and Television Ireland, according to a transcript released Friday. "Let me finish. Let me finish, please. Please. You ask the questions and I'll answer them, if you don't mind," he said.

In a second segment, Bush plead twice more; all this in an 11 minute exchange.

COMMENT: Ending the video and going live, Larry King said (protecting Bush, as is de rigeur for an American "journalist"): "What do you make of that, the Irish being feisty?" (Emphasis added.)

Bill Clinton got irritated with a BBC reporter in an interview taped and aired earlier this week. Many news outlets carried it as a way to bash Clinton (and thus Democrats). Now, will they air this tape of Bush, just days later? Let's see.
