Gonzo & His Talking Chimp-The Comedy Tour!
This fabulous revue made a stop in Chevy Chase MD this week to talk about school safety! The conclusion? Only God will keep us safe.

The zany duo delighted the audience with their witty repartee.

Democrats and gun-control advocates shut out of the invitation-only event had to do their sniping from a distance. They pointed out the COPS in Schools program, given $160 million in 2000, has been cut to zero. "The Bush administration is in denial," protested the Violence Policy Center.

At the conference, Bush's thoughts leaned in the opposite direction; he mused at one point about whether schools were becoming too locked down.

Gonzales advised Bush that one panelist said metal detectors send "the wrong message about what we think of our kids."

"I happen to agree," Bush said. "But what do I know?"

"Yes, sir," Gonzales replied

"You regulate restrictive law through legislative creed, and yet you failed to understand that God is what we need."

Until that point, Bush had been having trouble finding his voice on school shootings, which one of his own panelists asserted could number as high as 600 over the past six years. He labeled the violence "inexplissible," apparently merging "inexplicable" and "inexpressible." And he had to guide the discussion away from one panelist's remark about "computer predators" -- a dangerous topic during the Mark Foley scandal.

But on hearing Scott's "unbelievably eloquent testimony," Bush brightened considerably.

"That was great, Craig," the president said, after the audience finished its standing ovation. "Could I have that?"
