A little more than two weeks before Iraq’s provincial elections, there is widening anger that the published version of the election law has only a weak provision to set aside seats for women.
Well, all across the country — this is kind of sad — unemployment offices are swamped with people waiting to file for unemployment insurance. It’s gotten so bad that the offices are overwhelmed and can’t function. I got an idea. Why don’t you hire more people? They’re right there in line. - Jay Leno

Subject; Goodbye Mr. Bush
Hi Lisa, My birthday is January 23rd but I get an early present this year!!!
GOODBYE MR. BUSH
The Nation’s nightmare is almost over
I’m sure that the above heading gives you a hint that I’m not one of 25% of Americans who believe you have done a good job as president. I’m also sure that the 25% number is viewed differently by both of us. You are probably saying "wow, only 25%", while I’m saying "wow, how the hell can it be that high?"
I’m also not a Democrat or a Republican. It seems that being one or the other exclusively, has given America one extremely inefficient and nonproductive government.
When I started a business many years ago, I would write on a white board the pros and cons of issues that presented themselves. Doing the same thing with the pros and cons of your presidency would leave one side glaringly bare.
I guess your environmental policies could be placed in the pro column. You have left a little of the planet intact and savable!
That your finest moment might have been after the 911 attacks leaves a whole lot of not so fine moments in its wake. You were quite a sight with bullhorn in hand calming a nation. Sad that after that moment, all America received was the bull part!
Your ‘No Child Left Behind’ plan seemed like a good idea at the time. Then I guess it dawned on you that having a population of young people smarter than their president might not be in your best interest.
The people you have placed in important governmental positions have been brilliant. Brownie would have been a great choice to help the people of New Orleans if only, using a word that he was better suited to understand, he would have been a ‘mudder’.
Condi has been such a bright star for our country with her gift of diplomacy...that is if diplomacy is defined as the art of continually kissing her president’s rear end.
We could not have had a more decent and fair vice president than Mr. Cheney. Always looking out for our best interests. I feel so much better knowing that he is willing to torture others to keep me safe. Willing to strip away my privacy rights and redefine the constitution just to protect me. He is what anyone in a position of power should strive to be like! Just don’t get between him and his target, what ever that target might be!!
A possibility for the pro column of your presidency would be your outstanding ability to manipulate the news media. You were a master of feeding the press and broadcast whores what you wanted said and they lapped it up without a second thought. Like an organ grinder’s monkey, they danced to every tune you put out. Only when your actions were so incompetent that they couldn’t be ignored would media monkeys like Brian Williams, reluctantly call you on them.
Now as your final term comes to an end, you leave with the economy in shambles and a deficit that my grandchildren will still be paying for when they are my age. Your bailout program for lenders is a perfect "swan song" for your tenure. Save the people who’s bad policies and greed put our country in this position and turn your back on the millions of victims of that greed who have or will lose their homes. Who could expect more from your great presidency?
As plans are being made for your Presidential Library, an idea comes to mind. I cannot think of a better use for those FEMA trailers. I know the formaldehyde has proven to be a little pesky, but remember we are only talking about 25% of the population that might actually visit your library (that popularity problem again). By the way, that 25% probably has never visited any type of library!
I’ll close this letter the way I opened it by saying "goodbye". It has been my dream over the past eight years that you would no longer be a part of our country’s landscape. We are so close to being able to say "Mission Accomplished".

George W. Bush: defiant, dishonest and delusional to the end. It was our fault after all. Sir, may you live to an incredibly ripe old age so that you are forced to confront how horribly history will judge you. It's a slam dunk. - Grant Gerver, www.seriouskidding.com

Give you an idea how bad the economy is. You know the Small Business Administration? It’s now the Teensy-Weensy Business Administration.- Jay Leno
"Health experts are now concerned that this bad economy may be causing Americans to gain weight. They call it recession pounds. You heard about this? You put on recession pounds during economic hardship. So guys, if your wife or your girlfriend says, 'Do these pants make me look like we're in a recession?,' be careful what you say." --Jay Leno
