Hey, Cohen:

Is something like THIS a little more comedic to you:

At a black-tie dinner for journalists, Mr Bush narrated a slide show poking fun at himself and other members of his administration.

One pictured Mr Bush looking under a piece of furniture in the Oval Office, at which the president remarked: "Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be here somewhere."

After another one, showing him scouring the corner of a room, Mr Bush said: "No, no weapons over there," he said.

And as a third picture, this time showing him leaning over, appeared on the screen the president was heard to say: "Maybe under here?"

The audience at Wednesday's 60th annual dinner of the Radio and Television Correspondents' Association obviously thought the quips hilarious - there were laughs all round - but the next morning, in the cold light of day, things looked far less amusing.

Yeah, that's really fucking cute there, just the sort of stuff that positively KILLS in a room full of whores and sycophants like the kind our press has become in the course of covering this rampaging clusterfuck of an administration

Or, dear Richard, is it just that this particular misbegotten spawn of a silver gorilla named Bar deserves some special degree of deference and reverence because he's a republican?

Did you find Don Imus' remarks at the 1996 Correspondents' Dinner to be respectful and appropriate?

To be honest, the text of that speech may be some of the funniest stuff i've ever heard from Imus ...since god knows on TV and on radio Imus comes across as this boring, barely-animate scrap of leather that someone saw fit to prop up in front of a microphone.

I guess there is something to the notion of wearing kid-gloves with Bush as opposed to Clinton as, in spite of his personal shortcomings, Clinton seems to possess a genuine sense of humor and is not an emotionally immature psychopath with a messiah complex like little Dubya.

And by the way, Mr. Cohen, you might want to give Chris Matthews back those custom-made kneepads with the White House logo embossed on them before he misses another chance to service the President

Well-rehearsed indignance

So a good percentage of the various Bush apologist/whores we have come to call our media all have their panties in a bunch over the spanking they got from Stephen Colbert at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday night.

Yeah, well... fuck 'em.

Since the Reagan-era, our media has spent an inordinate amount of time fellating right-wing assholes so as not to seem "biased" and then after decades of that type of professional, for-profit knob-gobbling, they have the nerve to object to being portrayed as low-grade street corner whores.

At least the damage that can be caused by an actual street-corner trollop is comparatively minimal in that at worst she may give a few johns an STD. The grand and unrelenting whoredom we call the media is more than willing to transmit their collective war-gasm into the homes of millions like the biggest, nastiest collective snow-balling ever committed.

I don't remember hearing so much outrage over Don Imus' genuinely tasteless and disrespectful appearance at the same function ten years ago, but then maybe that's because Clinton and his supporters have a sense of humor and he only had one person (as opposed to the whole press corps) sucking him off.

Hey Tweety, giving those kneepeds a workout, eh?
