Political parody writers, take note ---- a golden opportunity for you!

Bush misspeaks, says his administration seeking 'new ways to harm our country'
By Associated Press, 8/5/2004 13:48

WASHINGTON (AP) President Bush offered up a new entry for his catalog of ''Bushisms'' on Thursday, declaring that his administration will ''never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people.''

Bush misspoke as he delivered a speech at the signing ceremony for a $417 billion defense spending bill.

''Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we,'' Bush said. ''They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.''

No one in Bush's audience of military brass or Pentagon chiefs reacted.

The president was working his way toward a larger point. ''We must never stop thinking about how best to defend our country. We must always be forward-thinking,'' he said.

White House spokesman Scott McClellan said Bush's misstatement ''just shows even the most straightforward and plain-spoken people misspeak.''

''But the American people know this president speaks with clarity and conviction, and the terrorists know by his actions he means it,'' McClellan said.

He said "You see, I've got a negative I.Q.
Furthermore my bonehead bleatings make a lobster seem smart too
But I'll repeat myself,
'Cause Dick_Cheney told me to
There must be
Fifty ways to harm our country
Fifty ways to harm our country."

Jus' speak like a jerk, Dirk
Talk like a kid, Sid
Show 'em the void, Lloyd
In your empty brain-case

Piss_off your friends, Clem
Be a snob on the job, Bob
Just threaten the world, Merle
And call women "girls"

He said "It grieves me so to spare my country pain,
I wish that there was some way I could screw our Amber Waves of Grain,
So_Dick, I'd appreciate if, you'd kindly please explain
About the fifty ways...?"

Dick_said, "Why don't you smoke some opium tonight,
And then get up good and stoned in the middle of the night,
And call a press conference, while wearing Laura's leotard and tights?"
That's one of
Fifty ways to harm our country
Fifty ways to harm our country

As much as I hate Bush and agree with the public's opinion of his intellect, I have to say that that particular line makes perfect sense in context. As I stated earlier in the day on another forum,

I have to say, despite its amusingness when taken literally, it really does make perfect sense. He's presumably talking about terrorism, and the best way to cause terror is to do the unexpected. Hence, "they never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people". So how do you stop it? By thinking of it yourself, making it less unexpected. So you have to think like the terrorist organizations would. "To catch a thief..." and all.

True enough, true enough ...... but ...... when have those kinds of details and facts ever deterred the onslaught of the lampooning political parodist?  ;D

I mean, parody itself is all about taking a set of original words and twisting them around into something humorous or profound or just plain different ........ and in this particular case, our Fearless Leader (Boris, Natasha, take notice) has already done all of that preliminary work for us, regardless of what the context of his remarks may or may not indicate!  ;D
