A President that knows funny
In contrast to Howard Dean, check out President Bush's conversation with the Press Pool the other day. It's all incredibly funny, Chatterbox's confusion and Eugene Volokh's overanalysis notwithstanding, and therefore hard to find a good excerpt. Here's a piece, but you really must read all of it to get the full effect.
Q Sir, on homeland security, critics would say you simply haven't spent enough to keep the country secure.

THE PRESIDENT: My job is to secure the homeland and that's exactly what we're going to do. But I'm here to take somebody's order. That would be you, Stretch -- what would you like? Put some of your high-priced money right here to try to help the local economy. You get paid a lot of money, you ought to be buying some food here. It's part of how the economy grows. You've got plenty of money in your pocket, and when you spend it, it drives the economy forward. So what would you like to eat?
