When Bush joked about missing WMD

Last night, the president received a fond farewell at the annual Gridiron Dinner in Washington, D.C. No, this is not a football fan club but a longtime, quasi-secret, gathering of journos and politicians, who perform skits. Bush surprised the guests by taking his turn, to the the tune of "Green Green Grass of Home," about his permanent return to Texas, changing the lyrics to "Brown Brown Grass of Home" -- though some might say he could have chosen, "If I Only Had A Brain." Anyway, at least he avoided making another tasteless joke about those dang missing WMDs, as he did at a similar 2004 dinner, a true low point in his presidency and for the U.S. media (since nearly everyone there laughed along). Here's the video in case you missed it:

This video gets sadder with every passing year.

I cannot watch this video one more time, although I'm glad you posted it to remind people of how low & despicable this presidency has been.

My son, my only child, was still alive the night of the 2004 dinner, and 2 months later he was killed in Iraq. I was truly shocked and horrified that the President of the United States and the suck-up media were laughing their a**es off at the same time 135,000 members of the US military were in harms way, looking for those WMD's that we now know were non-existent, on orders of that same president.

I am counting the days until Bush goes back to his brown, brown grass of Crawford, TX. He will not be missed.
