They adore Bush in Albania!

More accurately, they are gaga about him in Fusche Kruje, as you can see from the picture.
But you know why? Because he is the only visitor they've ever had over there.
Maybe they love him too in Turkmenistan. Perhaps Borat may want to interview him in Kazakhstan, where he may also be extremely popular. You see, he is a very beloved leader in the boondocks, where the sun don't shine. In the rest of the civilized world, ah, it's a different story.


  1. I read this article of yours about the visit of President Bush in Albania. I am albanian, and I thought that it was an awful comment. Anyway, I read also abut this comment about Albania "they must surely drive donkeys to work, throw rocks at each others' heads as the national pastime". It is your right to write anything about this Country. But I think it is not fair to describe a Country when even know it. It is sure that we dont drive donkeys to go to work, but we drive the most beautiful cars of europe(it is known in europe too that we have the most beautiful cars). We dont throw rocks at each other, but we share our food with each other. We are a country with an old tradition, history and culture in Europe, unlike USA country,and we are proud for our hospitality that exist since Before Christ. I think that USA people should ask the american force that were here how was our country. And to finish this comment, if the american people doesnt like their presindent, but a "lost country" likes him, what the hell of country is USA??!!

    All I can say is, Enver Hoxha must be rolling over in his grave.

  4. Fushe Kruje, not Fusch Kruje!!!

    I am an Albanian living in America and the comment on the photo where it says "where the sun don't shine" (which by the way is grammatically incorrect for such a prestigious magazine), and secondly "compared to the civilized world" assmuning that Albania is not civilized, offended me personally. I have lived in both worlds, mine and the American one and you have to know both nations to understand who is civilized and who's not, not just by looking at a picture or knowing some general facts. Albanians love Americans, and Bush as well, not because he is American, but because we are Albanians and it is our tradition to respect guests. When Kosovo was at war, all Albanian people opened their doors, put them in their beds and gave them their food. They are our people and we love them the same as we love, a foreigner, George Bush. The problem today is that people take high values like respect and hospitality as weaknesses, not as strengths. Just because you don't know much of this "uncivilized" nation, the fault is not on the nation, is on the you who don't enlarge your horizon and know more about us. I am sorry, I don't have anything personal. I just want to attack the weakness of him who wrote the comment, not the person himself.
