All paths lead to Rome [May. 2nd, 2006|02:12 pm]
[Current Mood |dorky]
[Current Music |Jesus Christ]

This morning I had a good chuckle - courtesy of Stephen Colbert...

Wow. Wow, what an honor. The White House correspondents' dinner. To actually sit here, at the same table with my hero, George W. Bush, to be this close to the man. I feel like I'm dreaming. Somebody pinch me. You know what? I'm a pretty sound sleeper -- that may not be enough. Somebody shoot me in the face.

I think the line that really had me laughing was this -
And though I am a committed Christian, I believe that everyone has the right to their own religion, be you Hindu, Jewish or Muslim. I believe there are infinite paths to accepting Jesus Christ as your personal savior.
You can find the transcript & links to the video here

How many members of the Bush administration does it take to change a light bulb?

1. One to call Fox News so they can broadcast a story denying that the light bulb needed to be changed in the first place

2. One to attack the patriotism of anyone who says the light bulb needs to be changed

3. One to blame Bill and Hillary for burning out the light bulb

4. One to arrange the invasion of a country rumored to have caused the light bulb to burn out and to find the stockpile of light bulbs

5. One to give a billion dollar no-bid contract to Halliburton for the new light bulb

6. One to arrange a photograph of Bush, dressed as a janitor, standing on a step ladder under the banner: Light Bulb Change Accomplished

7. One administration insider to resign and write a book documenting in detail how Bush was literally in the dark

8. One to viciously smear 7

9. One surrogate to campaign on TV and at rallies on how George Bush has had a strong light-bulb-changing policy all along

10. One to arrange a Press Conference where Bush will tell everyone that he is the "Decider" and he decided all alone that the light bulb needed changing
