Top Gun Bush chose TV-friendly jet landing over simple helicopter ride

May 8 2003

For his dramatic jet landing on an aircraft carrier last week, George Bush wore a flight suit and a helmet and had to take underwater survival training in the White House swimming pool.
But as it turns out, the United States President chose to make the jet landing even after he was told he could easily reach the ship by helicopter, the White House said, changing its explanation for Mr Bush's Top Gun-style event.

President Bush chose to make a jet landing on an aircraft carrier last week even after he was told he could easily reach the ship by helicopter, the White House said yesterday, changing the explanation it gave for Bush's "Top Gun" style event.

Today's cartoon was inspired by Bush breaking the world record for extravagant photo-ops using the military as his backdrop.

"During an address from the aircraft carrier, the USS Lincoln, President Bush declared the war in Iraq a success saying no terrorist network will gain weapons of mass destruction from the Iraqi regime because it turns out they didn't have any." óJimmy Fallon, Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update"

Enjoyed your site -- Bush is a purposeless man, but I have great faith in his cowardice.

That may be his downfall.

Thank you. Remember when Shrub told us he was going to take crime out of the streets. He did.
He took it into Wall Street and into the damn White House!

The nemesis of the Powerpuff Girls is an evil, insane monkey obsessed with world domination. Hmm...

I read in a letter on that Bush's aircraft carrier photo-op stunt cost the taxpayers $5 million!! Do you know if that figure is true? And also, do you know if there is a statute of limitations on deserting your Air National Guard post? Keep up the good work.

Great questions Jim. Senator Robert Byrd (toon today) wants a detailed list of expenditures for the Bush photo-op for Campaign 2004. We'll see what the actual cost was.
I don't know the answer to your second question. Anyone out there know? 

A couple of pictures for your site if you want. They might be funnier run side by side. Thanks a million for your site!

Thank you...check below
