    WASHINGTON - President Bush (news - web sites) poked fun at his staff, his Democratic challenger and himself Wednesday night at a black-tie dinner where he hobnobbed with the news media.

    Bush put on a slide show, calling it the "White House Election-Year Album" at the Radio and Television Correspondents' Association 60th annual dinner, showing himself and his staff in some decidedly unflattering poses.

    There was Bush looking under furniture in a fruitless, frustrating search. "Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be somewhere," he said.

    (I doubt the families of those who lost loved ones in the war in Iraq would think Bush's antics were funny).

    There was Vice President Dick Cheney (news - web sites), a frequent butt of gentle Bush ribbing, holding his fingers a few inches apart. Bush said, "Whenever you ask him a question, he replies, 'Let's see what my little friend says.'"

    And there was Bush again, in an odd contortion in front of his national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice (news - web sites). He said he was trying to explain to her the foreign policy of Democratic challenger John Kerry (news - web sites).

    Bush showed himself playing cards on Air Force One and cracked that he was on his way to an international summit and using a special deck to help him bone up on the names of the leaders he was about to meet.

    His slide show segued into a somber ending, showing a group of special forces troops in Afghanistan (news - web sites) at the site where they buried a piece of the fallen World Trade Center in commemoration of the dead from Sept. 11.

    The late NBC News reporter David Bloom, who died in April from an apparent blood clot while covering the Iraq (news - web sites) war, was remembered. His wife, Melanie, talked of her husband's passion for journalism.

    About 1,500 guests attended the dinner.

    Reminds me of the 10 minute video that Clinton's hollywood friends did for him as he ended his second term.

    It was the last few lame duck weeks and it showed him around the White House with nothing whatsoever to do. He was watching the clothes dryer go round and round, answering the White House switchboard, trimming the hedges, riding bikes through the halls and at one point was demonstrating to a young intern how to steal candy bars from the vending machine in the basement.

    Like Bush and the WMD shot, I was surprised Clinton allowed that last one in.

    I know I would especially find the WMD shot offensive if I had family killed in Iraq.

  3. ...still won't change the minds of the dumbfounded dipshits who'll vote for him again... brittany spears!!!
  4. That's got to be a joke ...

    In light of the Madrid bombing and bomb findings, France has raised their terror alert level from "run" to "hide". The only two higher levels in France are "surrender" and "collaboration".
  7. ART,

    Lighten up. It's not a bad thing to have a President who doesn't take himself so seriously that he can't joke about his missteps. Or would you prefer a guy who has to blame falling on a ski slope on his secret service detail?

  9. thousands of people didn't die because of a misstep on a ski slope.
