snark of the week

From the Guardian suggesting that a George Bush doll would make an ideal Xmas gift for Tony Blair:

Toypresidents has been founded upon the principles of education and discovery of the American political system," the blurb reveals, adding that the Bush doll (of which half the 100,000 made have already been sold) utters "authentic phrases" when you push his stars and stripes lapel badge. This seems a dodgy claim, since the lines we've heard are in something close to English. But we hope to have the Blair Christmas gift modified to include such familiar presidential blandishments as "fetch!" and "how do you reckon I'll get on with Gordon Brown?"
