Bush: 'Can I Stop Being President Now?' November 4, 2008 Issue 44•45
WASHINGTON—In a press conference held this morning on the White House lawn, President Bush formally asked the assembled press corps and members of his own administration if, in light of today's election, he could stop being the president now. "So it's over, right? Can I stop being president now?" Bush said after striding to the podium in a Texas Rangers cap and flannel shirt, carrying a fully packed suitcase. "Let's just say I'm done as of now. Presidency over." When informed by Washington Post reporter David Broder that his presidency would continue through early January, Bush stared at him quizzically, sighed, and shuffled silently back into the White House.
"Gotta love how life imitates art! For those not in the know, The Onion is a long-running satire media source in print, broadcast and online, and would be one of my dream writing jobs (one of the few careers where being a constant smart-aleck is an asset!) Sometimes, as this short little article shows, these comedy spoofs may just be more close to the truth than us actual legitimate media sources! Sorry for the rip-off blog, but I'm spent for individual and unique thoughts right now. Enjoy your Thanksgiving!!" - Jenn
