The President's Business Partner Slices Up Iraq

By Greg Palast

...And who will net the big bucks under Jim Baker's plan? Answer: his client, Saudi Arabia, which claims $30.7 billion due from Iraq (plus $12 billion in "reparations" from the First Gulf war)

Mr. Bush has no authority to seize control of that nation's assets nor its debts.

But our President isn't going to let something as meaningless as international law stand in the way of a quick buck for Mr. Baker. To get around the wee issue that Bush has no legal authority to mess with Iraq's debt, the White House has crafted a neat little subterfuge. The President, says the official press release, has not appointed Baker, rather Mr. Bush is, "responding to a request from the Iraqi Governing Council." That is, Bush is acting on the authority of the puppet government he imposed on Iraqis at gunpoint....

GeeDubya was out jogging along the parkway one morning (okay, you have to imagine that he's actually able to venture out in public safely.) when he tripped, fell over a bridge railing, and landed in the creek below. Before the Secret Service agents could get to him, three kids who were fishing there pulled him out from the water. He was so grateful to them, he offered the kids whatever they wanted.

The first kid said, "I want to go to Disneyland."

Dubya said, "No problem. I'll send you there on Air Force One."

The second kid said, "I want a new pair of Nike Air Jordan's."

Chimpy McWarhardon said, "I can get those for you, and I'll even have Michael sign them for you!"

The third kid said, "I'd like a motorized wheelchair, with a built-in TV and stereo headset."

Seeing the kid was apparently very healthy, even DimBulb was bright enough to be a little perplexed by this and said, "But you don't appear to be handicapped."

The kid responded, "I will be... after my dad finds out I saved you from drowning."

"He was the only candidate that made the right judgment about the war. Well, guess what, he was right!" -Al Gore endorsing Dr. Dean
