Polls Up as Bush Starts 23rd Leg of Vacation
DISNEYLAND, Calif. -- George W. Bush pushed forward with
his so-called "leisure-time agenda" today for a record-setting
fourth month, his 23rd stop finding him in Disneyland again.
Bush -- already the record-holder among
U.S. presidents for the most vacation hours logged -- is attempting
to boost his sagging ratings in the polls, betting that the "Average
American" will embrace Bush's unwillingness to actually
The tactic worked before, when
his inability to run a business, together with his experience
as a part-time governor, captured the hearts and minds of 49
percent of the voting public during the presidential election
And now, Bush's bet has apparently
paid off as it becomes clear that he is nothing more than a figurehead,
to the relief of the American public.
"I like that he ain't too
proud to take a day off once in awhile and go to Disneyland,
or Magic Mountain, or Yellowstone Park, or Cheyenne," said
Tomas Guitierez of Albuquerque, NM.
"Plus it's nice to know
his thumb ain't on the button, know what I mean?" Guitierez
"Them's some fun family
rides that any uh-Murican can enjoy," Bush said after his
ride on Space Mountain. "Well worth the wait in line."
While Bush didn't actually wait
in line -- the park was closed to the general public during the
visit -- his statement was met with wild applause.
Bush's visit to Disneyland follows
his appearance last week at the Jimi Hendrix Museum in Seattle,
where he was heard yelling "Am I experienced?" to a
crowd of onlookers.
"HELL NO!" the crowd
yelled back at the only person with a criminal record to occupy
the Oval Office.
"Sure as shootin' up!"
Bush responded, rubbing his nose. "Now let's make sure that
there Supreme -- SNIFF -- Court gimme four more years! SNIFF
SNIFF! Anyone got any coke?"
