It seems to be official: the Chimp is as thick as a brick
It's hard to believe it was only one year ago that George W Bush was re-elected President. Since then he seems to have lost almost every single friend. Even his own family.
One Popbitch reader was at a Texas dinner party recently and sat next to a friend of Barbara Bush, Dubya's mother. Over the meal she confided that the Bush family only ever called the President by his rather patronising family nickname, "Junior". And that on a recent hunting trip she'd asked Barbara what George was like.
"Junior? Hmmmm..." Barbara apparently sighed. "He's not like the rest of us."
Mrs Bush's friend leant towards our source to explain. "Here in Texas... that means he's stupid."
Is this tale true or not? Who cares, spread it around.
