OK, so anyhooo, regarding this episode, and with Bush himself joking about it at an improptu press conference, and with inspiration from this comment thread, I thought I'd try my hand at blog humor. [As I have found with writing, and blogging itself, blog humor is probably more difficult than it appears, but I'll try none-the-less.]
I call this effort "Responses I'd Have Liked to Have Seen" [And some of these are stolen from the above comment thread.]
George Bush whips out a .44 Magnum and says: "[T]his is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?"
George Bush: "Who throws a shoe? Honestly. You fight like a woman."
Dick Cheney1: Blam! [Shotgun to the face.] Slide operates.
Dich Cheney2: "Awright, Motherfucker. I'm gonna wrap my dick around your neck and strangle you."
John Edwards: Ouch!
John Kerry: Yessssss! Another Purple Heart!
Al Gore: The Globe has become so warm that this poor man was forced to take off his shoes.
