I, too, am disappointed by this military coup

President Bush today said he was "disappointed" by the miliary coup in Thailand. Let me take this opportunity to say for the record that I, too, am disappointed by this move to take over that nation. Why, not only am I disappointed, I am...well, I'm chagrined! I'm cornswaggled!

It's like this morning. I went to make a cup of coffee, and there was no low-calorie sweetener left in the bucket. What a disappointing turn of events! Then, on top of that, the maid told me she couldn't get the caviar stain out of my cummerbund. "I am very disappointed in you, Rosmerta," I said. And if all of that wasn't enough, I then find out about this bloodshed in the streets of Bangkok, and that, too, disappointed me. It's just been one of those days. Hey, I know what I'll do to perk myself up...I'll go out for Thai food.

Cheer up... I hear the coup was bloodless.

No, I'm just going to stay disappointed, thanks. Disappointment is one of the deepeset, most sincere emotions in the rainbow of feelings.

Thai food is delicious! Easily as delciious as political unrest!

I can almost taste the unrest in my lemongrass soup.

And yes, it was bloodless. Gary, thank you for that important clarification. Usually, when tanks and coups are involved, it is not bloodless, but this time it was. So kudos to you, coup organizers and coordinators. Kudos.
