    When presidents appear appear at the annual Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner, it's traditional for them to tell a few jokes. But when George W. Bush appeared last week (3/24/04), he made a series of "jokes" about the failure to find the weapons of mass destruction that had been the central justification of his invasion of Iraq.

    Part of Bush's routine included slides showing administration officials looking around the White House for something. "Those weapons of mass destruction must be somewhere," Bush explained while showing one of the images, which elicited laughter from the audience of politicians and media figures".

    "The problem is not that *someone* told a joke about WMD. It's that as the chief purveyor of the WMD falsehood, which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Americans and thousands of Iraqis, it is beyond bad taste for *George W. Bush* to joke about WMD. It's the difference between a comedian making a joke about O.J. Simpson looking for Nicole Brown Simpson's "real killer," and *O.J. Simpson* making the same joke".

    The only place the NYT was looking on Friday was the Web there Einstein. Are you saying that the terrorists are gonna Email their next attack?

    We executed the Rosenbergs for what the Bush White House did. Of course the Rosenbergs did it on purpose and the Admin just Bushed things up again, so criminal negligence isn't really gonna apply.
