Beaus have buttonholed their beloveds seemingly forever. The tradition with some variations always seems to involve a doting lover, a trinket of affection and a shy but lascivious paramour. The age old ritual will repeat itself as the Helen and Paris of the Iraqi war play out their romance de guerre in a Washington tryst.
Like a palm sweating prom king, Mr bush will award his British mistress of war ,Tony Blair with the frat pin of all fraternity pointy objects, the US Medal of Freedom. Informed sources said that Bush would praise Blair for his contribution to freedom by liberating British citizens from their hard earned cash and their post colonial pride.
In a particularly personal moment, Bush is expected to give Tony a peck on the cheek or will he get cheeky with Tony's pecker? Either way it's more freedom than W's ever got from Lolly.
