Former Secretary of State Colin Powell has revealed that he left George Bush's cabinet because "if the texan nut-bar had patted my head one more time I was going to kill him."
Speaking in Bob Woodward's 'State of Denial,' an expose of an administration racked by in-fighting, Powell said that the President's bizarre passion for patting bald or thinning heads of hair was a constant irritation.
"Ever wondered why Dick Cheney always looks like he's got guts-ache? It's because he gets his head-patted every time the President walks into the room."
Powell reveals in the book that he undertook the onerous task of 'selling the UN a load of rotten horse meat on the understanding that if I did, Dubya would never pat me on the head again. Then next time we met he was at it again saying 'I'm the decider.' . . . . .

Looks like Merkel (sp?) should consider herself lucky.

That last one looks like a very practised application of the vulcan mind meld. Mr Spock would be proud.
