The Ghosts of Presidents Past

George W. Bush was thrilled at finally being able to spend his first night in the White House, but something very strange happened. On the very first night, he was awakened by George Washington's ghost.

Bush asked the ghost, "President Washington, what is the best thing I could do to help the country?"

"Set an honest and honorable example, just as I did," advised Washington.

With all the excitement of the White House, Bush still couldn't sleep well, and then, later on that night, the ghost of Thomas Jefferson moved through the dark bedroom.

"Tom, what is the best thing I could do to help the country?" Bush asked. "Cut taxes and reduce the size of the government," Jefferson answered.

Bush still couldn't sleep well, and much later he saw another ghostly figure moving in the shadows.

It was Abraham Lincoln's ghost. "Abe, what is the best thing I could do to help the country?" Bush asked. Lincoln replied, "Go see a play."

Totally rofl! Thanks for the laugh. Oh that Abe....he was really honest, wasn't he???

Nah, I wish the best for the prez and for his honcho, VP Cheney. But it would be nice if they would consider extremely early retirements... Or what's wrong with going back to owning baseball teams and being oil company executives? Sheesh! You'd think those were unpatriotic occupations or something! And I'm really sure that the pay is better.

I had to copy and email this to many many folks!

Yeah, makes you wonder why it is that with the $34 million that Cheney declared on his income tax this year, why he wants to be VP. You'd think that with his bad heart he'd be enjoying what time he has left....

Could it be....POWER!?!?!

(or do you think the kick backs are that much more money?)

In a train car, there was Bill Clinton, George Bush, a spectacular looking blonde and a frightfully awful looking fat lady. After several minutes of the trip, the train passes through a long dark tunnel, and the unmistakable sound of a slap is heard.

When they leave the tunnel, Clinton had a big red slap mark on his cheek.

(1) The blonde thought - "That rascal Clinton wanted to touch me and by mistake, he must have put his hand on the fat lady, who in turn must have slapped his face"

(2) The fat lady thought - "That dirty old Bill Clinton laid his hands on the blonde and she smacked him".

(3) Bill Clinton thought - "George put his hand on that blonde and by mistake she slapped me".

(4) George Bush thought - "I hope there's another tunnel soon so I can smack Clinton again".
