In a surprise move today, White House Spokesmen announced that President George Bush had decided to relocate the White House and its staff to Albania.
Citing the general decline in support at home and the surliness of the American people in general, Bush insiders believe the change in scenery will do the embattled President good. Communication with Albanians should pose no problem for the President as "they don't speak english well either".
Nancy Pelosi, speaking for the democrats on the Hill, stated firmly that, while everyone supported the President's decision, the President might find it difficult to reenter the United States once updated immigration Laws are passed. The House, Pelosi continued, is now considering requiring Americans who live abroad to take a standarized intelligence tests upon their return. Failure to pass such a test, Pelosi concluded, could lead to confiscation of their passports.
With cheering Albanian crowds and a hero's welcome under his belt, President Bush presented the folks of Albania with a heart "thumbs up".
In a related story, White House staffers were quick to deny allegations that Dick Cheney had the Justice Department combing through Albanian election protocols.
