OK, by now everyone’s seen the Reuters photo of Bush writing a note to Condoleezza about a bathroom break during a Security Council meeting at the 2005 World Summit and 60th General Assembly of the United Nations in New York. It’s kinda cute and definitely funny, but, hey, everyone’s gotta go once in awhile and there’s no reason to think Bush should be any different in that regard. What really amuses me about the note, however, is the fact that Bush isn’t even certain if he needs a bathroom break or not. Take a good look at the end of the sentence in the photo:
See that question mark at the end? Bush isn’t sure if he might need a bathroom break and is looking to Condoleeza for advice. I never knew that one of the functions of the Secretary of State was ensuring that the President knew when he needed to go to the potty, but I guess you learn something new every day. We won’t even go into the fact that the next sentence appears to be asking if it’s even possible to get a bathroom break.
