OK, this was obviously somebody's idea of edgy humor to put together a thing called "Culture of Peace" and then... ha, ha... invite George Bush to speak. Isn't that hilarious? No? Whoops, I forgot irony died. From the looks of things, I'd say Condi 'n' Khali totally didn't get it, either. She used to look so fascinated when he spoke!
So anyway, this was one of those UN things where they invite Catholics and Arabs and then pretend that it's totally amazing. Everybody took their turn to trot up to the podium and use those buzz-words "tolerance" and "interfaith" which are so hot right now.
And then they all banned gay marriage together, hugged, and went home. The end.
