Dubya has some big decisions to make. What's he going to do after his second term is finally over?
Uncle Ben, just before he died, said to Peter Parker, "With great power comes great responsibility." Only time will tell if Dubya takes responsibility for his Presidential deeds.
Like his father, he is in serious need of help to administer some damage control to his image. Every handyman knows that you fix just about anything with duct tape. Bush's problem is that they haven't produced that much duct tape!
He would like to think of himself as a hero, and his administration as team of super heroes.
That's being kind to an almost cartoonish cast of characters!
George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Al Gore find themselves out side the Pearly Gates of Heaven on the same day. They are approached by an angel who says, "Before you can enter through the Gate to meet St. Peter, you must cross this river and we will judge how much you have sinned based upon how far you sink."
...Dubya goes first and the water comes up to his neck, but he makes it across. He looks back and sees Gore walking on the water without sinking.
...He appeals to the angel saying, "He's sinned as much as I have! What gives?"
...The angel replies, "He is standing on Clinton's head."
We could give them a mulligan the first time around, but what do you say to those who voted for Bush the second time? How do you know who they are? It's quite simple, they are all either wearing bags over their heads or they are in a state of denial. Hmm ... Sounds like Dubya, doesn't it?
Well, I guess for now Dubya has the best seat in the house. He's on the top rung. It's always the underlings who get shit upon anyway. Why should his supporting cast be treated any different?
Heh, heh! I am reminded of an appropriate joke right now. What? I said I was reminded of a joke, I didn't say I was going to tell it. Okay. Okay.
When asked about his weekend at a press conference, Dubya said, "Laura and I went to see that unicue play "Lay Misser Rob." The press members were able to figure out he was talking about "Les Miserables" easily enough, but were stumped at the word "unicue."
....A reporter in the front row raised his hand and said, "You must mean unique."
"Oh," said Bush, "That's how you pronounciate that word." ( I know - groan!)
