HumoR: Reality Bites Bush in Backside

Andy Sez

Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf, who became famous ...snip...when he served as Information Minister to Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein, was {today} named the chief spokesman for the Pentagon in Washington.

“Baghdad Bob” came to prominence three years ago by repeatedly proclaiming that the Iraqi army was demolishing invading U.S. forces, appeared at a press briefing at the Pentagon this afternoon with a beaming Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who called the former Iraqi Information Minister “the right man for the right job at the right time.”

Explaining his decision, Secretary Rumsfeld said, “I realized that our spokesmen have been trying to do the same thing that Muhammed did three years ago, only they aren’t as credible as he was.”

Stepping up to the microphone, an ebullient “Baghdad Bob” said that conditions on the ground in Iraq “have never been better” and that the insurgency was “all but vanquished.”

“Democracy is flowering in Iraq so fast you wouldn’t believe it!” Mr. al-Sahaf added. “People think the new constitution is awesome!”

When asked by a reporter about the burned-out cars that litter the streets of Baghdad and other cities, Mr. al-Sahaf was unfazed, explaining, “Their engines overheated.”

President Bush, meanwhile was not censured by congress, nor was he impeached yesterday.
