Here's something weird - George W cracking jokes about himself. Curiouser and curiouser. And this man is the President of the Free World? How Bizarre! The mind boggles! The story speaks for itself.

Bush under Fire for 'Tasteless' Weapons Jokes

By Mark Sage, PA News, in New York

US president George Bush came under fire from his election challenger John Kerry today for joking about the fruitless search for Iraq’s alleged weapons of mass destruction.

At a black-tie dinner for journalists, Mr Bush showed what he called a “White House Election-Year Album” slide show, poking fun at himself and other members of his administration.

One photograph in the slide show pictured Mr Bush leaning over to look under a piece of furniture in the Oval Office.

“Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be here somewhere,” he told the gathering of 1,500 members of the media in Washington.

He showed another picture, of him peering into a corner of a room: “No – no weapons over there,” he said.

And as another picture of him leaning over appeared, he said: “Maybe under here?”

The audience – guests at the 60th annual dinner of the Radio and Television Correspondents’ Association – broke into laughter and applause at the well-delivered jokes.
