GEORGE BUSH IS NOT STUPID CONVENTION
the light of all the criticism that George Bush is an idiot,
the Republicans decide to hold a "George Bush Is Not
Stupid" convention. Eighty thousand Republicans meet
in the Kansas City Chiefs Stadium.
Trent Lott says, "We are all here today to prove to
the world that George Bush is not stupid. So ladies and
gentlemen, let me introduce President George Bush."
After the cheers die down. Lott says "Mr. President,
we're going to prove to the world once and for all that
you are not stupid. So tell us, what is 15 plus 15?"
Bush, after scrunching up his face and concentrating real
hard for a moment, declares, "Eighteen!"
Obviously everyone is a little disappointed. Then the 80,000
Republicans start cheering, "Give Bush another chance!
Give Bush another chance!"
Trent Lott says, "Well since we've gone to the trouble
of getting 80,000 of you in one place, I guess we can do
that." So he asks, "What is 5 plus 5?"
After nearly 30 seconds of chin-rubbing and grimacing, Bush
meekly asks "Ninety?"
Trent Lott is quite perplexed, looks down and just lets
out a dejected sigh -- everyone is disheartened.
But then Bush starts pouting, and suddenly the 80,000 Republicans
begin to yell and wave their hands, shouting again "Give
Bush another chance! Give Bush another chance!"
Lott, unsure whether he's doing more harm than good, eventually
says, "Ok! Ok! Just one more chance -- What is 2 plus
Bush looks down, counts on his fingers, and after a whole
minute, proudly announces "Four."
A moment of total silence, then an electric charge surges
through the stadium as pandemonium breaks out.
All 80,000 Republicans jump to their feet.
These GOP partisans start to wave their arms, stomp their
feet and create a deafening roar:
"GIVE BUSH ANOTHER CHANCE! GIVE BUSH ANOTHER CHANCE!"
