Investigators today revealed that the President George W. Bush is nothing more than a puppet leader. Suspicions grew when strings became visible during a presidential broadcast, and they were confirmed when, during a public speech, a hand was visible in Bush's throat.
"There is no truth in these puppet allegations," Bush claimed in a rushed rebuttal today. At that point, however, his lower lip fell away to reveal the arm of Dick Cheney, which was wedged in Bush's jaw and was controlling his mouth.
Rapid investigations uncovered the political story of the century. It appears that 'Bush' was in fact a cloth creation, that could be manipulated with the use of wires or hands. The 'puppeteers' are all familiar faces, such as Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove and Rice. Rove has admitted to having left the group recently.
"It felt too immature," He claims.
Reports that 'Bush' was just one of a long line of puppet presidents - including a waxwork Nixon - are unfounded, but it has been exclusively revealed to The Spoof that the creator of the president was none other than the father of Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, Jim Henson.
"We always knew that Bush was a muppet," A spokesperson commented wryly.
