Remember when they said the grownups were now in charge?

Not so much:

US President George W. Bush had a shoot-out with the "bad guys" in Iraq on Thursday, playing a computer game with war veterans that simulates a firefight in Baghdad, the White House said.

Bush tried his hand at the game with two soldiers during a visit to a rehabilitation center in Texas that treats veterans wounded in Iraq.

White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said Bush helped "shoot the bad guys" in a Baghdad neighborhood, albeit virtually.

The fuckwad visits a rehabilitation center and plays an Iraq video game? I wonder what the recovering soldiers who lost limbs in the real war thought about a commander-in-chief who was too busy snorting coke from a stripper's ass to even finish his cushy National Guard gig doing pretend soldier stuff. Ten bucks says he was too fucking drunk to realize it was just a video game.

You know, this hole in my forehead from sticking an icepick in it is getting kinda nasty.
