Stevie & Georgie

So. Their president and our prime minister are buddies. After former PM Martin refused to bring his toys to Bush's sandbox, W is at last thrilled to have someone his own mental size to play with.

It seems George was referring to Stephen Harper as 'Steve'. Snerk. Steve. That's a hoot. I thought even his own parents referred to him as Mr. Harper. Even when he was two. He's got that stick-up-the-bum look that makes you know he always got his homework done on time.

Anyway, it must be an American thing, renaming people who are already adults. Look at Tom Cruise, renaming his Stepford birthing machine 'Kate'. Because she's a childbearing woman now, doncha know. 'Kate' is just so much more edgy than Katie. And apparently, 'Steve' is somebody's homeboy.

Cruise can blame Scientology for his weird brand of scary zeal. Bush can't spell Scientology, nor it seems, Stephen-with-a-ph. He probably thinks it's once of those odd British affectations like favourite, labour, and leftenant. I would love to be a fly on the wall if W ever has to introduce a 'Geoffery'.

Oh well. I should be glad that little Stevie finally found someone to play with. My kids aren't allowed to play with tanks and guns. They're also not allowed to play further trod on the downtrodden, I don't let them bribe me with my own money, and they have to share with everyone, even if they'd rather just give the good stuff to their friends.

Everything I needed to know I learned in the sandbox.
