Despite the myriad negative aspects that have come to define the presidency of George W. Bush, one bright spot recently emerged. Dubya was notified last week that he will be officially inducted into the Ignoramus Hall of Fame, or IHF, at their annual convention, which will be held this summer in Moscow.
Bush learned of his nomination during a recent question and answer session with reporters in the White House rose garden. He was obviously touched upon receiving the news. Prior to feinting, the president appeared to mutter the words "I'm so happy. What's an ignoramus?"
In a related story, five reporters were killed and another twenty-six were injured, eight of them critically, when Secret Service agents opened fire on the reporters after the president feinted, apparently believing that an assassination attempt was underway.
Ignoramus Hall of Fame inductees of note in recent years include Rev. Al Sharpton, Don Imus, Rosie O'Donnell, Donald Trump, and Al Gore.
