If you detest the Busheviks as much as I do, you're gonna wanna bookmark this page

"This page" being


from the folks who bring you The Onion...

What makes the audio address consistently funny is the writing -- the flights of incoherence, the tangential mind swings, the verbal linguistics, and the tortured (one of Bush's favorite hobbies) logic that we've -- sadly -- gotten used to from a President not gifted with eloquence, class, or grace (or, really, much else beyond a giftedly wealthy family). Scott Dikkers, the voice behind the WRA, knows Bush. He also knows comedy. As the editor-in-chief of The Onion, he is immersed in the flotsam and jetsam of daily news. Like its forefather in satire, National Lampoon, the Onion's writers have no sacred cows; everything is ripe for comment; irreverence is king. Sometimes, as they did on January 17, 2001, with this headline: "Bush: 'Our Long National Nightmare Of Peace And Prosperity Is Finally Over'," they even predict the future.
