I'm soooo glad the "adults" are back in charge.

WARSAW (Reuters) - Donald Rumsfeld walked out of a NATO meeting in Warsaw on Tuesday night, minutes before his German counterpart was due to speak.

"No, I did not intentionally snub anybody. That's not my way," Rumsfeld told a news conference. But he couldn't resist a swipe when asked what steps Berlin could take to mend relations between the NATO allies.

"It's not for me to give advice to other countries," Rumsfeld said.

He left a long pause and then added: "We do have a saying in America: if you're in a hole, stop digging."

Another pause.

"Erm, I'm not sure I should have said that," he said, almost giggling. "Let's pretend I never said that."

How very professional of you.

Even the Unelected Arsehole behaved like a 2-year-old having a tantrum and did not make the usual congratulatory phone call to Schroeder following his victory.

"But I don't think anybody should be surprised or find anything unexpected that words and actions have consequences. They don't go away after the election," Ari Fleischer said.

You better believe it, buttwipe.
