DUBYA JOKE A friend sent me this, I think it's worth a laugh:

George Bush has a heart attack and dies. He goes to hell
where the devil is waiting for him. "I don't know what to
do here," says the devil. "You're on my list but I have
no room for you, but you definitely have to stay here, so
I'll tell you what I'm going to do. I've got 3 people
here who weren't quite as bad as you. I'll let one of
them go, but you have to take their place. I'll even let YOU
decide who leaves." George thought that sounded pretty good,
so he agreed. The devil opened the first room. In it was
Richard Nixon and a large pool of water. He kept diving in
and surfacing empty handed over and over and over. Such was
his fate in hell."No!" George said. "I don't think so.
I'm not a good swimmer and don't think I could do that all
day long." The devil led him to the next room. In it was
Tony Blair with a sledgehammer and a room full of rocks. All
he did was swing that hammer, time after time after time.
"No!" I've got this problem with my shoulder. I would be in
constant agony if all I could do was break rocks all day!"
commented George. The devil opened a third door. In it,
George saw Bill Clinton lying naked on the floor with his arms
staked over his head and his legs staked in spread eagle pose.
Bent over him was Monica Lewinsky, doing what she does best.
George Bush looked at this in disbelief for a while and
finally said, "Yeah, I can handle this." The devil smiled and
said....Monica, you're free to go!"

Now, this being a political blog I am however not going to allow this to pass without comment entirely. Politically of course, I find the comparison with Nixon rubbish. I can't be bothered to explain and list all the wrong things Nixon did and explain case by case that anything what Bush has done is miles away from it. No, I would in fact go further and say that Clinton was worse by all counts than Bush. Many people, at least in the circles I mix in, yearn for the good old days, when Billie was in charge of the White House. After all, he wasn't as gung-ho, unilateral and all that as Bush was he? What these people tend to forget is, that it was Clinton who piled up all the global problems that the Bushies are now having to deal with. For sure the Bush admin isn't always flawless in this (ahem, post-war Iraq planning anyone?), but a great deal of blame for this lies with the Clinton admin for not having dealt with the problems in the irst place and thus letting them inflate massively. I'll discuss this view in an essay sometime so I'll just leave it at that for now.
I guess I shouldn't really spoil peoples' enjoyment of silly jokes with such analysis anyway.

I've pinched your joke ! With acknowledgements.

Cheers. Template will be fixed sometime tonigth I hope.
Oh dear, I'm not even capable of posting comments on my own site ;(
