Washington, D.C. - Surprising new poll numbers show George Bush has a 95% approval rating, up some seventy points from previous polls. These numbers fly in the face of numerous nationally recognized polls that have placed Mr. Bush at historically low ratings among presidents.
Asked about this astonishing leap, a White House spokesman explained the numbers this way. "This poll was taken of a cross section of American people who just happen to work in the White House. Women, men, whites….and others, the vast majority agree that President Bush is doing a bang up job."
A question was raised about the validity of polling members of the White House staff. The spokesman dismissed the concerns as "typical liberal bias." He assured the assembled reporters that this was a voluntary, totally random poll.
The redacted survey was circulated among reporters at the news conference. Question number seven was: "President Bush has never made a mistake while in office. Do you believe George Bush has ever made a mistake?" Question eleven: "Jesus Christ walked on water. George Bush cleared brush. This means Jesus Christ and George Bush are spiritual coequals. True or False."
The tabulated results of the survey have been classified as top secret, but Department of Justice lawyers have certified the results as accurate and true.
