"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities" --Voltaire

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
