Saint George

I received this Bush joke and just had to share it. I can't help myself:

Subject: Fwd: Bush, the Saint READ BEFORE TONIGHT's SPEECH!


President Bush was scheduled to worship at a small Methodist Church outside
Washington, D.C., as part of his campaign to reverse his deteriorating approval rating. A week before the visit, Karl Rove visited the Methodist Bishop who was scheduled to preach on the chosen
Sunday.

"As you know, Bishop," began Rove, "we've been getting a lot of bad publicity among Methodists because of the president's position on stem cell research and the like. We'd gladly make a contribution of $100,000 to the church if during your sermon you would say that President Bush is a saint."

The Bishop thought about it for a few minutes, and finally said, "This parish is in rather desperate need of funds. I agree to do it.

Rove wrote him a check.

The following Sunday, Bush pompously shows up for the photo op, looking especially smug. After making a few announcements, the Bishop begins his homily:

"George W. Bush is a petty, self-absorbed hypocrite and a nitwit. He is a liar, a cheat, and a low-intelligence weasel. He has lied about his military record and had the gall to put himself in a jet plane landing on a carrier posing before a banner stating "Mission Accomplished."

"He invaded a sovereign country for oil and money, turning it into a training
ground for terrorists who would destroy our country. He continues to confuse the American people by insisting on a nonexistent connection between the horrors of 9/11 and the reason he started his war in Iraq. He is the worst example of a Methodist I have ever personally known.

"But compared to Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and the rest of the Cabinet, George W. Bush is a saint."
