Yesterday morning I needed to make a business call to a guy I know who is anti-Bush. And I mean really anti-Bush. Every time I have to call, I get an earful about the latest Bush happenings and how the world is sure to end soon because of the latest thing President Bush has done or said. Usually I don't mind listening to him going on with his ranting, because it's a nice source of free entertainment. But yesterday I wasn't really in the mood for it, and just wanted to get the information I needed to do my job and move on.
Naturally, this proved impossible. When somebody is passionate about President Bush... pro or con... you simply cannot stop them...
Guy: HA HA HAH! DID YOU HEAR BUSH TRIED TO ESCAPE A PRESS CONFERENCE IN CHINA AND WAS FOILED BY A DOOR!!
Dave: Uh... no.
Guy: I'LL SEND YOU THE VIDEO LINK! IT'S HILARIOUS! A DOOR!!
Dave: Uhhh... he forgot how to open a door?
Guy: NO... NO... IT WAS LOCKED! HA HA HAH!!
Dave: And he ran into the door and fell down or something?
Guy: NO! HE JUST WENT TO THE WRONG DOOR AND IT WAS LOCKED!
Dave: Ah. Well that's not so bad is it? I mean, it's not like he accidentally started a war with China or anything.
Guy: NOT YET! BWAH HA HA HAAAAAAH!
Well, whatever. I mean, it is a bit embarrassing... but if Bush didn't have an exit strategy for Iraq, why would he have an exit strategy for a press conference? Shouldn't people be accustomed to this kind of thing by now?
Hey, as long as Bush doesn't declare war on Canada or nuke the moon or something... I say it's all good. Run into doors or make up all the non-existant words you want, just don't get us into any more trouble than we already are, and I'll pretend to be happy.
Embarrassed, but faux-happy.
(Uhhh... there is still a two-term limit on the presidency isn't there?)
BLOGOGRAPHY FLASHBACK ENTRY: Leather Jackets
BLOGDATE: April 7, 2004
In which Dave attempts to find a place to buy a leather jacket via Google and discover that "leather" can mean very different things to different people... and there are plenty of freaky people out there.

My husband is the same way about W. And like W., my husband provides much humorous material to be shared with the world.
“Exit Strategy.” Heh-heh-heh.
It’s because of the 2 term limit that you ended up with bush in the first place. In fact what’s the limit for? So that everyone can take turns being president?
Forget the locked door, if i was him i’d be more worried about the mutant coffee beans he’s trod on.
WONDERFUL Bush cartoon! Is this the first time you’ve done him, or did I just miss it previously?
I am not really a Bush fan, and he certainly has done many things that have freaked me out… but I can’t seem to muster the all-consuming hatred that so many people seem to have (though I can certainly understand it).
I have no idea what term limits are for… but in this case, I’m glad we have them. Perhaps it is to put power restrictions on the office so that one man isn’t allowed to shape the country in the long-term?
Bush was made to be a guest on “Dave’s Bad-Ass Blogography Show” and I think you can see him by going to the “Tooncasting” category archive.
Terrific entry today. You must be a great graphic artist, to spend only 5 minutes a day putting together this great blog.
Term limits are definitely a good thing under our current situation. I think it started because most of the early presidents were pretty old guys when they started…and after Roosevelt died while in office, they decided, well that wasn’t a good thing…
What I don’t get are the lifers in Congress…talk about a “good ‘ol boy” thing…
Funny how similar your Bushie cartoon looks to Bad Monkey. Poor Monkey. I think he’s going to have a self-image crisis.
The similarity between Bad Monkey and Bush, sadly, does not end at apperances. Bad Monkey for President! At least he’d be cooler…
Whatever happened to Dave’s Bad-Ass Blogography Show?
It’s a surprise.
At least, it will be a surprise to me when I actually have time to finish a few episodes!
Since I haven’t had much chance to work on the show, I will probably not release the first episode until it’s time for Blogography’s Third-Year Blogiversary Celebration. By then, I hope to have three shows completed, and will then release a new show every month after that.
What I don’t want to do is release a show… then have to wait three months until the next episode. I would like very much for it to be on a regular monthly schedule so people know when to expect it.
I hope you don’t have to deal with that guy on the phone too damn often. That would be a shame.
I get the feeling that foreign relations would be a natch for President B. Monkey. After all, as Wes Craven says, “everyone loves monkeys.”
And, God knows, I’m sure his Iraq exit plan has to have more merit than Bush’s.
Hmmmm… I dunno about that. Bad Monkey’s idea of “foreign policy” is to throw his poo at foreign dignitaries, so I’m not really sure he would be better at that than Ge…
Ah. I see what you mean.
