Temper of the Times

I don't normally pass on internet humor. But this one knicolini forwarded me has the virtue of compactness:
George Bush goes to a primary school to talk about the war.

After his talk he offers question time. One little boy puts up his hand and George asks him what his name is. "Billy."

"And what is your question, Billy?"

"I have 3 questions. First, why did the USA invade Iraq without the support of the UN? Second, why are you President when Al Gore got more votes? And third, whatever happened to Osama Bin Laden?"

Just then the bell rings for recess. George Bush informs the kiddies that they will continue after recess.

When they resume George says, "OK, where were we? Oh that's right---question time. Who has a question?" Another little boy puts up his hand.

George points him out and asks him what his name is. "Steve."

"And what is your question, Steve?"

"I have 5 questions. First, why did the USA invade Iraq without the support of the UN? Second, why are you President when Al Gore got more votes? Third, whatever happened to Osama Bin Laden? Fourth, why did the recess bell go off 20 minutes early? And fifth, what the f--k happened to Billy?"
This is the sort of joke that would get passed around surreptitiously in East Germany. I suppose we'd better get used to the format, because four more years of Bush will have many people feeling like they live in a totalitarian regime. Samizdat, anyone?

On a slightly less overcast note, you should check out Will Ferrell's impression, if you haven't already, of W making a television spot on his ranch. He sure nails the accent and halting delivery. And the understatement is welcome.
