Keep the day job, George. Or not.

From the 3/27/04 L.A. Times story (registration required):

At the annual black-tie radio and television correspondents dinner on Wednesday night, Bush tried to poke fun at himself � the leitmotif of these events. Displaying a big-screen photo album of his administration, he showed himself futilely looking under cabinets and desks in the Oval Office.

"Those weapons of mass destruction have to be here somewhere," Bush joked in his verbal caption. "Nope, no weapons over there. Maybe under here."

The response from one professional:

"As a comedian, I can do satire on weapons of mass destruction," said comedian Al Franken, who recently entertained troops on a USO tour to Iraq. "As the president of the United States who sent men and women in harm's way based on weapons of mass destruction, you're in an iffy position."
