Awards from the POTUS not what they used to be…

BBC NEWS | UK | UK Politics | Blair awarded top medal by Bush

I was listening to the podcast from The Economist and they mentioned that Bush had awarded Blair and some others the highest medal available for civilians.  The interesting comment was that perhaps it was a bad thing to receive such an award from Bush, especially when it was because of the recipient’s support of the efforts in Iraq. 

Then again, Blair’s image has been pretty badly tarnished already.  Perhaps this doesn’t make as much of a difference.

    If I won an award from GWB, I’d die of shame – and give it back!
