True believers may argue that our President knew exactly what he was doing when he tough-talked about Syria to Tony Blair during the G8 Summit over an open microphone. But then couldn't he have, um, you know, tried to sound smart and stuff? Here's the direct translation:

Bush: See, the irony is, what they need to do is to get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this shit.

He also seems to later bash Kofi Annan and the United Nations.We also bet you'll enjoy the delightfully baffled BBC coverage here, which isn't nearly as bleep-happy as NBC.
