Washington, D.C.- Bush 43, the 43rd president of the United States, against the better judgement and advice of Bush 41, his father and the 41st president of the United States, has decided (he is the Decider) to make a run for the White House two years from now; making him Bush 43 and Bush 44. Switching parties, he'll run as a Democrat and against his previous eight year Republican record.

Hearing this announcement, Laura Bush grabbed a fire extinguisher to dose out the flames started on her lime green pants suit, piled along with the peach and maize copy and a pair of black power pants, trying to stop the burning flames. "You burkas are back in business," she was overheard to announce; the Manolo Blahniks and designer gowns pushed to the back of her closet.

Bush 43 went on, "I have eight years experience over my stiffest competition," he announced to a group of trusted confidants, the barbershop harmony quartet of Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Gibson and Hannity, "I know the names of all the heads of state now and the location of every single country; who's part of the evil axis and who isn't; who's been naughty and who's been nice. I can be the new Santa Claus of the whole wide world. www. Crash on that one, internets."

"Hummmm," tuned up the quartet. "What about Vice President Cheney? Shouldn't it be his turn to run?" the four inquired.

"That's the beauty of it. He can still run as a Republican and I'll run against him. Call it his record and say he's too old."

The four agreed with a, "Hummmm."

Vice President Cheney walked into the oval office, parted Bush 43's hair with his six shooter, blew the smoke away from the nozzle, tossed the gun into the air, letting it spin and land without hands in his right holster. "There won't be a Bush 44. I'm running for President in '08. Not against you. And I'm not too old. If Lego can hold together, so can I."

"Does that mean I can get the matches out again and set flame to my campaign wardrobe and start wearing fashionable clothes for the first time in my life?" asked Laura Bush.
