Potty Time for the Pres

OMG. I thought this was a joke, some kind of Photoshopped thing, at first, but it’s not. It’s a real photo. I’ve included Reuters’ caption that accompanied the photo.

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.

Is it just me, or does this seem wildly weird? First of all, "exploring ways to revitalize the United Nations" seems like kind of an important topic that warrants his full attention, especially considering that he justified sending Mr. Moustache over there sans confirmation hearing because he and his big crazy temper were going to sort out the UN. Secondly, did he need to write Mommy a note about it, or could he have just waited until a break or excused himself, if needed? Hell, I’ve spent whole days in management meetings or conferences where there wasn’t always a convenient time to “go,” but no one was scribbling notes about it to each other; if you were so desperate that you couldn’t pay attention, you just went and did your business. Jeezy Creezy. Grow up.
