DURST: George "Wussmonster" Bush, Jr.

George W. Bush Jr, and the W apparently stands for Wussmonster, has refused to weigh in on the question 11 of the other 12 candidates for President have answered quicker than you can say "Christian Coalition $1000 a plate fundraiser."The showdown has to do with what he did or did not put up his nose way back when the W stood for Wickedwildboy. The reason he cites for declining to deny ever using the Bolivian Marching Powder is twofold: A. He refuses to get into the politics of personal destruction, and B. It would mean he had less chance of winning the Republican Nomination than Robert Downey Jr.He also said by answering he would send a bad message to impressionable youths. Which means what? He was doing it wrong? Swabbing it onto his underarms with Q-Tips from a galvanized tub perhaps? Dunking his eyebrows in a foot high pile of it? Or using it on his cinnamon raison toast as a sugar substitute?A lot of people think George W Bush has a very good chance to become our next president. Of course a lot of people think George W Bush has already been President and is his father running again. Like a sequel. Bush Versus Prince Al: The Spinoff. When what we really need is these two sorry retreads go on hiatus and for a groundbreaking sensation to premiere as a mid season replacement.Will Durst thinks Bosley from Charlies Angels would be a good role model.
