Amazing how quickly Bush ensured Annapolis was a net minus

Few of us here doubted it would be at best a small humiliation and at worst something divisive between the US and Israel and a diplomatic plumb for the Palestinians.

He is SUCH an idiot -- yet again he got himself in trouble by saying something he didn't need to.
