Dude, that's what Blackberries are for.

No big deal, it's not like it's high-priority or anything:

All eyes are on Amman as President Bush meets with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Kamel al-Maliki looking for solutions to the political and military morass in Iraq.

Prospects for the already-delayed meeting were put into further doubt when al-Maliki canceled a presummit dinner with Bush. But White House Spokesperson Dan Bartlett denied there was a snub, saying it was nothing more then a schedule change.

"We have increasing violence in Anbar province, a growing insurgency and now, people being dragged from mosques and burned alive in the street so this summit meeting can't possibly come soon enough for ... damn! Did I say Wednesday? Sorry, my mistake, can't make Wednesday. How about Friday? Does Friday work for you?"

Well, you know, Iraq hasn't been as big a part of the bush II [p]residency as has Latvia.

Priorities, priorities.

Plus, he really didn't want to sit around and listen to those Ay-Rabs telling him what to do in, uh, their neck of the woods.

I think it probably has to do with the fact that the White House chef was making all of Bush's favourites for the dinner...Iceberg lettuce salad with Thousand Island (tm) dressing, Sloppy Joes (tm) with a side of Cheetohs (tm) and for dessert...M&M (tm) pie.

...I think Al-Maliki came down with indigestion just thinking about it.
