President Bush missed a golden opportunity when he chatted with Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni.

The politicians met yesterday in Washington to discuss Uganda’s trade and protracted battle against HIV/AIDS, but Bush neglected to bring up the African nation’s anti-gay policies.

The two emerged from the meeting to appear for a camera opportunity with Bush praising Museveni for his push to lower the AIDS rate in the African nation by emphasizing abstinence until marriage.

“Uganda is the epitome of how one can implement a comprehensive ABC strategy to achieve concrete and specific results for the sake of humanity,” said Bush.

Part of Museveni and Bush’s joint strategy involves working with virulently homophobic religious leaders, like Sheikh Ramathan Shaban Mubajje, who wants to create a doomed gay island.
