Cheney says he’s sorry.

He shot his friend in the face.

(So what?  He shot America in the ass!)

Let’s send him to Wuziristan!


After he lodged a BB in his friend’s unmechanical heart,

he and some other friends sat down to a dinner of lacerated quail.

“I’m choked up about Whittington,” he said,

reaching for a fourth glass of Liebfraumilch.


Bush says he’s sorry

for what Katrina did.

As soon as he heard about it, he said,

“By George, we gotta do something!”


He got up in his helicopter and looked around.

Wearing a blue shirt, in front of a blue statue of Andrew Jackson

(who sent the Cherokee on the Trail of Tears), he said, heartfully,

“By George, we gotta do something!”


180,000 Iraqi dead. ...

20,000 American casualties. …

We can’t help it!

We’ve got an oil addiction!


Look!  People are eating bugs on TV!

Look! People will kill for a new Camaro!

“Hail, Caesar, we who are about to die, salute you!”

If you don’t like the channel, switch it, switch it, switch it, switch it, switch it ...
