Blank Expression

Who says stand-up comedy is dying? Not President Bush; he tried it out yesterday at the press conference in answer to a question about the upbeat tone he’s taking regarding the election in Iraq.

He said that if he had told the reporters in the room a few years before that the Iraqi people would be voting, “you would look at me like some of you still look at me, with a kind of blank expression.”

Actually, the blank expression is a result of all the reporters, after hearing about over thirty Marines being killed in a helicopter crash, wondering “Why the _____ is he so happy?”
