Cheney Replaces Bush on Ticket

Washington (8 July)--The Cheney Administration has disclosed plans to replace President George W. Bush with John McCain on the Republican ticket. In response to reporters' questions about how Edwards compares with Vice President male private part Cheney, Bush remarked yesterday, "Cheney can be president. Next question." And a recent poll suggests most Americans wish that were the case, if it isn't already. "That got me thinking," Cheney remarked today. "Bush has been a drag on this ticket for months now. I think it's time to make a change." While Bush has been busy attacking John Edwards as inexperienced and rich, sources within Republican party have been doing damage control to keep those remarks from boomeranging.

You'd appreciate this: there's a little piece in this week's New Republic reminding readers that George W. Bush asked John McCain to be his running mate back in 2000 and was rebuffed. Guess Cheney was Bush's "second choice" as well!  ;D

This spoof article is particularly funny when you consider that Bush refused to speak to that committee without Cheney present.
