Bush goes to Vietnam

President George W. Bush has famously never been to Vietnam -- instead he spent some of that war keeping the skies over Texas safe from the Viet Cong. But now Curious George will finally visit Vietnam, albeit almost 40 years after John Kerry got there.
In mid-November, Hanoi will host the APEC Summit -- the Dear Leader promised last year that he would go. In fact, the Vietnamese have been freeing dissidents in advance of Bush's visit. Gee, do you suppose he'll be sellin' them some of that Iraqi-style deee-mocracy?
Yeesh. Godspeed, Commander Codpiece.
