George W. Bush today announced a number of policy changes that
he hopes to present to Congress by next week Thursday. Meeting with the
press on Wednesday, President Bush along with his new advisor,
"Dangerous" Donny Moore, presented a number of radical changes he would
like to see Congress pass during the next round of meetings.
Bush began by announcing a drastic change in his drug policy saying
marijuana should be legalized. "What's the worst crime a pothead's
commit? Bush asked rhetorically, "Break into a convenience store and
steal all the Twinkees." "Besides," added Moore, "a pothead would
break into a convenience store and probably forget why he was there in

section in Moore's act wherein he announces a series of policies
he would introduce
if he were indeed president.
The president was so inspired by Moore's "bold initiatives" he
invited him to Camp David for the weekend to flesh out these ideas in more detail.
Vice President Dick Cheney said, "George came to me with the policy changes on
Monday and I told him I felt these policy changes were not in our best interest.
Bush said he didn't care and then Moore asked me where I bought my shirt.
Before I could reply he said, 'Walmart'."
policy changes include the death penalty for elderly drivers who
forget to turn off their blinkers, an amendment calling for women
"hogging" all the blankets, and a tax on stupid people. Following
conference Moore sold his "Clinton Sucks Monica Blows" bumper stickers
dollars a piece.
