The punditry has been enjoying vicariously Bush's "rock star" visit to Albania.
But something about this video has bugged me from the beginning:
Why aren't the Secret Service protecting the President? Why are they allowing the Albanians to get so close and actually ruffle the man's hair?
And then a commenter (forgive me, your screenname is a little difficult to recreate in a post) pointed out why the Secret Service really wasn't protecting the President. If you look at the :50 second mark, there's a watch with a black wristband...at the 1:00 minute mark...it's no longer there. That's right, those adoring Albanians--who have actually issued postage with Bush's face--were mugging the President. Pretty ballsy, if you ask me. After all, look at what he did to a country that actually posed no threat.
