Lost In the White House

Someone reminded me of my favorite joke of the year, which I've updated a bit...

So there's this big post-election party at the White House. All the big contributors are there, hootin-and-a-hollerin'.

One guy has a few drinks, and wanders off to find the men's room. He gets lost, walks around a while, and finally opens a door to what he hopes is the men's room.

Instead, he finds Bush and Cheney in a conference room, standing by a big table that's full of maps and charts.

He apologizes profusely, and turns to go. "That's alright, citizen," says Bush. "No apology needed."

"Thank you, Mister President," says the guy. "And may I say, what an honor it is to meet you and the Vice President, and thank you for all you've done to the country."

Bush and Cheney nod and smile, and continue looking at their maps and charts.

The guy summons up his courage and says, "May I ask you, sirs, what you have planned next?"

Bush replies, "Well, citizen, there's going to be a big offensive. It's going to kill another hundred thousand Iraqis and Oprah Winfrey."

"Oprah?" the guy asks. "Why Oprah?"

Cheney laughs and slaps Bush on the back. "See, I told you -- no one cares about a hundred thousand Iraqis!"
