Daily Show: Bush back on propaganda offensive

As usual Jon Stewart slices through Bush's latest propaganda effort inside Baghdad's Green Zone and his 'Commander in Hilarious' press conference in the White House Rose Garden.

Fresh off the killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi President Bush made a surprise trip to Baghdad and then came back to take questions in the White House Rose Garden. Bush was back to being a cocky funny man cracking jokes with White House stenographers (or reporters, but that's just semantics.) Of course Bush wouldn't be Bush without putting his foot in his mouth.

When 'Los Angeles Times' White House correspondent Peter Wallsten asked a question while wearing sunglasses, I couldn't help but think back to the time when Bush waved to Stevie Wonder.
