Seriously- you've got to be fucking kidding me:
U.S. President George W. Bush writes a note to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during a Security Council meeting at the 2005 World Summit and 60th General Assembly of the United Nations in New York September 14, 2005. World leaders are exploring ways to revitalize the United Nations at a summit on Wednesday but their blueprint falls short of Secretary-General Kofi Annan's vision of freedom from want, persecution and war.

At first when I saw this I thought- big deal... of course a CEO might turn to an assistant and slip a "I gotta take a leak note"... but then I re-read the note the President of the United States of America passed the Secretary of State of the United States of America, at The United Nations...
"I think I may need a bathroom break.
Is this possible?"
(then something I can't make out, but it looks like a "W"- like he signed this fucking masterpiece for the George W. Bush Presidential Library)
"I think-" (he's not sure, tentative...) "I may-" (still not quite the decisive 'problem solver' he's recently claimed to be) "need a bathroom break" (hey, who doesn't from time to time? Usually I'm pretty sure, though). "Is this possible?" (This is the Leader of the Free World here , folks. I grew up believing that the President didn't need to ASK to do any-friggin'-thing they wanted to! Jumpin' Jeebus, have you heard the stories of LBJ and the can? Yikes!
What do you think was going on in the meeting? Maybe some ferner was yakkin' and Bush didn't have his earpiece in? Maybe he really is a complete puppet of these people... maybe he is Forrest Gump...
Wouldn't it be great if there was a picture of Condi's note back to him?
"Hold it in. And keep smiling, moron"
