quote:
President Bush, evidently growing impatient with the pace of the Iraqi liberation and the attitude of the Iraqi citizens, has issued a new ultimatum, only this time it's to the Iraqi people themselves.

"I'm a patient man" said the President at a hastily called news conference, "but there are limits to my patience. We've been bombing the daylights out of these people for a more than week and I haven't seen a single one of them dancing in the streets to celebrate their liberation."

I almost thought that was real until I looked at the date on the article.

It's humorous in a kind of bizarre way.

Michelle, never do that to moi again.

I have such a hair-trigger response to condescending idiots in bad suits, so this article was just too damned believable.

Behave yourself, Michelle. From now on. Promise?

Ha! Oh come on - surely the "bombing the daylights" phrase was your first clue! They never use terminology like that. Hee hee.
