131. Karl Rove always comes up with something new and original
IMAGINE...our own Lord Bunnypants, basking in the glow of "tens of thousands" of people who L-O-V-E him, and all of a sudden some crazed terrorist tosses a grenade at him.

But being the war hero that he is, President Bush survives the attack unscathed, and goes on to spread democracy throughout the world.

PLEASE tell us another story, Unca Karl...I'm not sleepy yet.
