Bush's Poodle makes one last-ditch effort to get some kind of payback from Bush for his loyalty, in an effort to avoid being forever known as Bush's Poodle.

Ah yes, poor Tony Blair. Only a few weeks left in office, and desperate to somehow reclaim his "legacy". You just know that his gravestone is going to have a single word on it:


As for the thought of the Petulant One actually granting Blair his boon? Bwahahaha! Look, we're talking about a man who drops his dogs like rocks. Tony Blair is going down like Barney the Presidential Terrier. Except in Tony the Poodle's case, he doesn't even get to look at cute softball chicks on the way down...

But hey, I'm sure Dear Leader will give Tony the Poodle a Presidential Medal of Freedom and a hearty "Heckuva job, Tony!" for his troubles. ARF!

  1. Do those presidential medal of freedom have chocolate inside of them? Better not give one to Tony, or he mighy get sick and die.

  2. Definitely. Anyone, after all, that works together with someone you don't like MUST be weak minded and pitiful. He couldn't possibly be making the decisions on his own. He couldn't possibly have decided through his own processes that in was in the UK's best interests to fight terrorism in the middle-east.

    But the again...Blair why would Blair care at all about terrorism (actually, they have)? It's not like they have been attacked at all, or that they have terrorist cells growin in their country (actually they do)?

    After all, Blair had SO MUCH to gain on this issue (nope): political support from parliament (nope) and from the people of the UK (definintely not). In fact, he even got a pat on the back from the UN (uh, nope). It's amazing to see what he gained from submitting to Bush's requests!

    In fact, now that I have just taken a quick look at what Blair has gained from supporting the President in this war, I have to agree with you...he's just the president's poodle.

    Honestly, BT, that just doesn't make any sense. Blair had to believe that what he was doing is right. He gained NOTHING from this war, and it only hurt his reputation. The few conservatives out there appreciated his stance on the war, but they already dissaproved of him for his liberal policies.

    Blair was resolute in his actions because he did what he thought was right, not to get a pat on the back from Bush.

  3. Hey, Jonathan, don't tell me that stuff. Tell it to the people of Great Britain. Prime Minister Blair can't even appear before Parliament nowdays without half the ministers going "Arf! Arf! Arf!" making fun of his support of Bush. The last time he was called before Parliament, they outright called him Bush's poodle and demanded that he step down. Which is why he is stepping down.

    I'm not the person who nicknamed Blair as "Bush's Poodle". That was pretty much everybody in England, who have seen Blair, time after time, do Bush's bidding... then get kicked in the balls every time Blair asks a favor of Bush. This has nothing to do with Blair's support for the Iraq war, and everything to do with a one-sided relationship where Blair does favors for Bush, but never gets anything back from Bush in return. Thus "Bush's poodle".

  4. The irony is that Bush has made such an utter mess while in office precisely because he rewards people based entirely on their personal loyalty to him. Basic competence to do the job assigned to them never even enters into the equation. (See: Gonzalez, Alberto, Brown, Mike, etc.)

    So now, after Blair has flushed his own career down the toilet as a direct result of his personal loyalty to Bush, he can't even throw the guy a bone?

    Of course, Blair ain't even a 'Murrican nohow, so what difference does it make what he thinks? We all know how neocons feel about the opinions of foreigners.
