Some Levity ........

President George W. Bush was scheduled to visit a United Methodist Church
in Oregon as part of his campaign. Bush's campaign manager made a visit to
the pastor, and said to her, "We've been getting a lot of bad publicity
among Methodists because of Bush's position on the war and stem cell
research and other issues. We'd gladly make a contribution to the church of
$100,000 if during your sermon you'd say the President is a saint."

The pastor thinks it over for a few moments and finally says, "The Church is
in desperate need of funds and I will agree to do it."

Bush shows up and, as the service progresses, the pastor begins her homily:
"George W. Bush is petty, a self-absorbed hypocrite and a nitwit. He is a
liar, a cheat, and a low-intelligence weasel. He has lied about his military
record and had the gall to put himself in a jet plane landing on a carrier
posing before a banner stating "Mission Accomplished."
He invaded a country for oil and money, and is using it to lie to the
American people. He is the worst example of a United Methodist I've ever
personally known......

But compared to Dick Cheney and the rest of his cabinet, George Bush is a
saint !"
