So it's been raining has it George?

The following was forwarded on to me. It's funny, so I'm repeating it.


Here's the official story line from Crawford:

President Bush took a spill during a Saturday afternoon bike ride on his ranch, suffering bruises and cuts that were visible later on his face just two days before he was to deliver a major prime-time speech on his Iraq policy.

The president was nearing the end of a 17-mile ride on his mountain bike, accompanied by a Secret Service agent, a military aide and his personal physician, Richard Tubb, who treated him at the scene, said White House spokesman Trent Duffy.

"It's been raining a lot and the topsoil is loose," Duffy said. "You know this president. He likes to go all-out. Suffice it to say he wasn't whistling show tunes."

So it's been raining a lot in Crawford, we are told. So here's the recent precipitation levels from Crawford:

May 22: 0"

May 21: 0"

May 20: 0"

May 19: 0"

May 18: 0"

May 17: 0"

May 16: 0"

May 15: 0"

May 14: 0.03"

May 13: 2.79"

May 12: 0"

May 11: 0.15"

May 10: 0"

May 9: 0"

May 13th saw some serious rain, but other than some sprinkles on the 14th, Crawford saw nothing but sun. In the last week alone, the temperature was in the high 80s the entire time.

So rain on the 13th and (barely) 14th was blamed for a Bush fall on the 22nd. As everything else, it wasn't Bush's fault. Nothing is Bush's fault.

    That's OK though, we needed a new member for the axis of evil and what with Iraq no longer eligible the timing couldn't have been better. Topsoil is an evildoer. America will prevail in the War Against the Topsoil which is bred on an ideology of hate for our values of freedom and our rampant use of fertilizers- Lord willing and the crick don't rise, especially with all this rain we been havin.

    Seriously though, I bet this is just a cover for some wild fournikashun. I heard that Laura likes it a little bit rough and when you have a little three way horizontal hokey pokey going with Ann Coulter, Mrs. Laura and the Bush himself then there's bound to be a bucking bronco or two that just might clip you with her Lee Press-On-Nails right in the noggin as we like to say down in Texas.
