Bush Makes Jokes About Lack Of WMDs In IraqIn comedy, what is the most imporTIMING!tant thing?
WASHINGTON -- President George W. Bush poked fun at his staff, his Democratic challenger and himself Wednesday night at a black-tie dinner where he hobnobbed with the news media.
Bush put on a slide show, calling it the "White House Election-Year Album" at the Radio and Television Correspondents' Association 60th annual dinner, showing himself and his staff in some decidedly unflattering poses.
There was Bush looking under furniture in a fruitless, frustrating search. "Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be somewhere," he said.
And there was Bush again, in an odd contortion in front of his national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice. He said he was trying to explain to her the foreign policy of Democratic challenger John Kerry.
His slide show segued into a somber ending, showing a group of special forces troops in Afghanistan at the site where they buried a piece of the fallen World Trade Center in commemoration of the dead from Sept. 11.
KTLA's Morning News here in LA showed the clip, and anchors Carlos Amezcua and Michaela Pereira were just yucking it up, saying, "That guy's got a great sense of humor!" Wonder if these wacky folks' families would agree.
