Ensmallening the Nation's Soul
After learning the D-10 tractor was NOT a Constructicon,
President Bush flew into a murderous rage.
As is often the case these days, the truth is scarier...
"I would suggest moving back," Bush said as he climbed into the cab of a massive D-10 tractor. "I'm about to crank this sucker up." As the engine roared to life, White House staffers tried to steer the press corps to safety, but when the tractor lurched forward, they too were forced to scramble for safety."Get out of the way!" a news photographer yelled. "I think he might run us over!" said another. White House aides tried to herd the reporters the right way without getting run over themselves. Even the Secret Service got involved, as one agent began yelling at reporters to get clear of the tractor. Watching the chaos below, Bush looked out the tractor's window and laughed, steering the massive machine into the spot where most of the press corps had been positioned.
I didn't know whether to laugh until I wet my pants, or drop to my knees and pray we all get out alive. Either way, you have to give it up for Junior. No other President has so relentlessly pursued metaphor.
The usual scrappy band has all this and more at the weekly Captiononomicon. Go vent your own spleen, before it gets run over.
