Moses vs the Bush

[Found over at Read My Lips...]

Recently while going through an airport during one of his many trips, President Bush encountered a man with long hair, wearing a white robe and sandals, and holding a staff.
President Bush went up to the man and said, "Aren't you Moses?"

The man never answered but just kept staring straight ahead. Again the President said, "Moses!" in a loud voice. The man just kept staring ahead, never answering the President. Bush pulled a Secret Service agent aside and pointing to the robed man asked him, "Doesn't that man look like Moses to you?" The Secret Service agent agreed.

"Well," said the President, "every time I say his name he just keeps staring straight ahead and refuses to speak. Watch!" Again the President yelled, "Moses!" and again the man stared ahead and didn't answer.

The Secret Service agent went up to the man in the white robe and whispered, "You look just like Moses. Are you Moses?"

The man leaned over and whispered back ."Yes, I am Moses. However, the last time I talked to a bush, I spent 40 years wandering in the desert and ended up leading my people to the only spot in the entire Middle East where there is no oil."

Here's one for ya:
The Pope, President Bush, and Rev. Al Sharpton are shipwrecked on a deserted island. One day a one-man life raft drifts up on the beach. Immediately The Pope and Sharpton start discussing who should get to leave the island. The Pope says, "I think it should be me who leaves the island. I am the spiritual leader of millions." Sharpton says, "I am the voice of an entire race that has no voice in this world. It should be me who leaves." Bush pipes up and says, "Look, eh, we could eh, keep goin' like this all day, see. Let's settle this, uh, democratically. Let's have a vote." The Pope and Sharpton agree. The ballots are cast, and tallied. "Hard to believe", said Sharpton, looking at the results. Bush won by seven votes, climbed in the raft and paddled out. :)

A twist on a joke about Daley I saw scroll by from fortune in my Phosphor screen saver :)

Okay, here's one for ya. I saw an old joke about Mayor Daley scroll by on my Phosphor screensaver the other day (fed from fortune). I thought it would be very suitable if Bush replaced Daley in the joke. Embellish or polish at will.
So, The Pope, Rev. Al Sharpton, and President Bush are shipwrecked on a deserted island. One day a one-man life raft washes up on shore. Immediately the Pope says, "I believe that I should take the raft for the mainland. I am the spiritual father of the Catholic church, my church needs me." Rev. Sharpton says, "It is true Father, you are a powerful entity. Buy my people, are a people, with NO voice. I believe, I said I believe, that no one will speak for my brothers and sisters if I cannot speak for them." Bush pipes up and says, "Look, eh, fellas, eh, we could go on like this for quite a while. Let's say we settle this, uh, democratically. Let's just, eh, vote on it." The Pope and Rev. Sharpton agree. The ballots are cast, the ballots are tallied. "Hard to believe", says Sharpton. "Bush won by seven votes." President Bush shoved off and paddled out to sea.
