On April 2, 2008, President Bush backed Ukraine’s and Georgia’s bid to join NATO over the staunch opposition of Russia. Alabama Governor, Bob Riley, secretly sent President Bush a note that whined, “How the H E double hockey sticks is Georgia getting an invitation to NATO. If Georgia’s getting an invitation, then by damned, Alabama should get one too. They’re already getting our water and they’re allowed to be an hour ahead of us. Shit, George, excuse my French, we vote Republican too, so let us also join NATO.” Vice President Dick Cheney was reported to send Governor Riley back a message that read, “Shut up you gol-damned idjit. It’s Georgia the country, NOT Georgia the state. Don’t you ever send me another idiot message, excuse me, don’t you send the President another idiot message like this, unless you want me to take you hunting. Know what I mean?” And that was how Alabama’s secret inquiry into joining NATO was squashed.
