      It's obvious that this is code. Look at the caps. "I MAY NEED A BATH". This is secret presidential code that means President Bush wants a bath.

      How can we prove that he was passing it Rice? Maybe she passed it to him, and he is replying "F**K NO!"

      Reminds me of one of the great cocaine songs of all time, by Klymaxx:

      Got a meeting in the ladies room
      Be back real soon!

      Hope Bushie finds what he needs...

      The question's handwriting looks much different than the answer Bush appears to be writing. The capital "I" in "I think I" are serif caps, whereas the "I" in "Is their" (which is what it looks like to me, which is REALLY improper usage) is a cursive loop.

      It's gotta be the same handwriting:

      Look at the th in "think", compared with the th in "this" .... the swash looks pretty similar to me!

      The part I think is funny is that he appears uncertain... "I THINK I MAY need a bathroom break?"

      Be Still - the "I think" part is normal for us guys. :-)

      At least he uses basic punctuation marks correctly, like periods at the end of statements and question marks at the end of questions. Oh wait, no he doesn't.

      I guess grammar nazis hate our freedom.

      Classic Bushism. Who knows what other notes may have read which we never saw?

      But what I can't find out is: did he actually get up and go to the loo?

      One would think the leader of the free world doesn't need permission to pee! Isn't that one of the perks of the job?
