Stale stand-up

The Bush camp tries pre-emptive humor, yet again, a la Laura Bush's standup routine early last year.

The trouble is, as with Laura, the jokes have already been told, and the "humor" is not that humorous. Also, your audience is LOTS cleverer than you and their Cheney jokes are much more cutting, funny and mean.

Nice try, George. But you're behind the 8-ball. Again. (Here's a hint: if you want to "beat them to it," try doing it FIRST.)
