CNN: Cooties News Network

CNN’s Rick Sanchez was orgasmic with schadenfreude as he touted a video of President Bush apparently being ignored by other world leaders at the G20 summit. Sanchez described Bush as “the most unpopular kid in high school… You know the one with the cooties.”

The Huffington Post reported the video below as evidence that Bush is in an even “sorrier state than the polls indicate.”

What wasn’t said was that Bush had already met the people in question and the others coming into the room had not, so there was no need to shake hands again. The “C” in CNN certainly doesn’t stand for “context.”

I believe this is the first time I’ve ever heard a president of the United States and “cooties” used in the same sentence. This video cuts off just before Sanchez shows footage on which he’s claiming that the other world leaders were calling Bush like a “liar, liar pants on fire.”
