Bush Given Idiot Label
The Daily Mirror
Apr 24 2004
By Anthony Harwood

A BAG firm's sales have soared since a presidential insult started appearing on the washing instructions in America.

Translated from French, it says: "We are sorry that our president is an idiot. We didn't vote for him."

4. Here's the company's site
http://www.tombihn.com /

They look like really good computer bags. I think I'm gonna order one... Not just because of the tag, but because I've been looking for good computer bags for all the stuff I haul around with me.

7. Don't buy one!
It won't be good any more in a few months. In November we will have a president who is neither an idiot nor unelected.

3. The Repug spin is that it was meant for the French Prez.
Being written in French and all.

9. What a country eh? The designer is trying to avoid getting in trouble...
Bihn, 43, said: "I'm going with the idea that it's a joke about me.

"But when you use the words 'idiot' and 'president' in the same sentence, people jump to other conclusions."


Now, obviously he doesn't believe that, he is only trying to avoid trouble in the land of the free. Why do I say this?

Tell me, does he often hold elections where his employees can vote for him?

Translated from French, it says: "We are sorry that our president is an idiot. We didn't vote for him."

12. I have a T-shirt that says that in half a dozen different languages.
My brother bought it for me ahead of my trip to Madrid.

15. I have one, too!
They're at http://www.cafeshops.com/americanapology.6234437

You can get one with or without English on it. Mine has no English, and it's hilarious to watch my little brother's super-Repug girlfriend try to figure out what is says using her high-school level Spanish. :) :)

Shrub was not given the idiot label, he EARNED it.
