Dave Broder: "How would you accurately describeI know that these are supposed to be humorous fake questions, but that one from Helen Thomas sounds legitimate. Can't you picture her asking that?
your role in this administration? Be honest."
I would say that I am a dark, insidious force pushing Bush toward war and confrontation. . . .
Helen Thomas wants to know, "How do you justify attacking innocent dictators?"
Helen, let me get back to you on that. I need to talk to Richard Perle.
Terry Hunt of AP wants to know, "Has Senator Kerry had Botox treatments?"
Terry, I have some guidance on that from Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz:
"The Administration takes this development seriously. Botox, of course, is related to the botulism toxin, which can be processed into high-grade biological weapons. We have dispatched Dr. David Kay . . . to search for the bio-warfare agents we believe hidden in Senator Kerry's forehead. If Senator Kerry has used botox as part of a wrinkle enrichment program, he is in violation of U.N. Resolution 752. Upon receiving Dr. Kay's report, the weapons of mass destruction that Senator Kerry so adamantly insists do not exist . . . may well be above his very nose." End of statement.
Susan Page of USA Today asks, "What do you think of Senator John Edwards?"
I think he's cute as a button. . . .
Anyway, ladies and gentlemen, it's getting late . . . and Nino [Scalia] and I have to get up early to go duck hunting . . .
