Bush Is Greeted Warmly in Albania

Maybe they only have Fox News in Albania.
Military cannons boomed a 21-gun-salute in his honor. Thousands jammed Scanderbeg Square in downtown Tirana, wearing Uncle Sam top hats in the sweltering sun, hoping to glimpse the presidential motorcade. The superlatives flowed so freely that Mr. Bush looked a tad sheepish when Prime Minister Sali Berisha proclaimed him “the greatest and most distinguished guest we have ever had in all times.”
Obviously they don't get many important visitors if this is the best one they have gotten. They need to remember that it was Clinton that helped the Albanian population of Kosovo. The Republicans could have cared less, after all there was no oil in Kosovo. When I read this I threw up a little in my own mouth.
