Getting Him Ready To Go

You are cordially invited to the official, pre-inauguration opening of The George W. Bush Presidential Library

The following rooms will be dedicated:

The Texas Air National Guard Room,
where you don’t actually have to show up.

The Hurricane Katrina Room,
which is still under construction.

The Walter Reed Hospital Room,
where they don’t let you in.

The Guantanamo Bay Room,
where they don’t let you out.

The National Debt Room,
which is huge and has no ceiling.

The Economy Room,
which is in the toilet.

The Environmental Conservation Room,
still empty, but warm…and getting warmer.

The Decider Room,
complete with dartboard, Magic 8-Ball, Ouija board,
dice, coins, and straws.

The Weapons of Mass Destruction Room,
(No one has yet been able to find it.)

The Supreme Court Gift Shop,
where you can purchase an election.

The Dick Cheney Cafeteria,
with catering provided by Halliburton and KBR. Try the club sandwich – a bargain at $1,500 (add $30.00 for a cup of soup and a side salad).

The Mission Accomplished Room
when you turn the door handle a trap door opens and you fall into a bottomless pit.

Note: The George W. Bush Library is equipped with an electron microscope to help locate the President’s accomplishments

    I think this is one trip with my husband (who writes about the presidency) I’ll skip.

    jb says: Me, too, Patti. By the way, I love your blog. Lucina Willams fans always welcome here.

  2. […] John Baker writes some very satirical lines about George Bush, this is very nicely done; the title is Getting Him Ready to Go. […]
