Rub a Dub Dub

At a White House Press Correspondents dinner last night, Laura Bush stages a mock-interruption of the president's speech, and takes a few shots at her husband.

I was impressed by the pointedness of her remarks.
Dubya looked like he was pissed but trying to play it off.

Some highlights:

"George and I are complete opposites.
I'm quiet, he's talkative,
I'm introverted, he's extroverted,
I can pronounce the word nuclear....

"I used to work as a librarian, and spent 10-12 hours a day in the library. Somehow, I met George.

"I'm married to the President of the United States.
Here's a typical evening:
9pm - Mr. Excitement there is sound asleep.
And I'm watching Desperate Housewives. With Lynn Cheney.
I told him 'if you want to wipe out tyranny, you're going to have to stay up later.'

"People ask me what it's like to be up there at Kennebunkport with the whole bush clan. Let me just say this-
First prize: 3 day vacation with the Bush family.
Second prize: 10 days."

I like when John Stewart says it, I like when Laura Bush says it.
I like it being replayed on the news.

Hi, Charlie.
Said the shooting star.
Peering over the fence.
I lost my 's' today.
O'Dell will send a new one.
I watch the Daily Show daily.
Now I think I'll do it with you.
Your character lives on in my fictions.
