Very true things that everyone already understood

Bush meets with Lula da Silva, Brazilian president:
At one point, da Silva even exhibited a map of his country, which is larger than the continental United States. "Wow! Brazil is big," [Brazilian foreign minister] Amorim quoted the U.S. president as responding.
I hope there's video of that exchange. My imagination can't do it justice.

(The title follows some sort of theme.)

And in Panama, our President pointed out: "People around here know how to play baseball." Also how to dig canals, but who's counting.
