Via Daily Kos and the Washington Post, we learn that today world leaders from all across the globe are meeting in Auschwitz to celebrate the 60th anniversary of its liberation. Solemn figures stood in the death camp for the solemn ceremony, dressed in respectful black.

Er, except for our guy, who showed up in a olive drab parka with a fur-trimmed hood embroidered with his name; a ski cap with "Staff 2001" on it; and thick, brown, lace-up hiking boots.

And, no, it wasn't the cold weather.

I ... just don't know what to say. Even after all they've done so far, I still honestly didn't think anyone in the Bush Administration could do something as scuzzy as disrespecting the deaths of six million Jews in this fashion.

Thankfully, the mainstream media's appears to have caught on to this story for a few news cycles — hopefully it'll make at least a minor impact.
