The pRedzident Of The Seventh Dimension
Sometimes, when one looks at the news, one has to wonder just which planet - or dimension - King George really belongs to, for it is increasingly clear he doesn't belong in ours. While:
* An Iraqi minister's brother was kidnapped, which would place a great deal of pressure on that entity's operation (even if it really were a government!)
* The most-powerful army the world has ever seen can't seem to rout a few irregular locals
King George seems to think that everything is going swimmingly!

If it ever gets off the drawing board.
Meanwhile, back in the reality-based world, ...
