PRESIDENT BUSH PICKS HIS FATHER TO REPLACE GEORGE TENET
President Bush wasted no time today announcing a replacement for the outgoing CIA Director, George Tenet. His father, George H.W. Bush, will again fill the position he held from January 30, 1976 to January 20, 1977.
"My Daddy was the bestest CIA boss ever!" said the President, "So why should anyone but him replace that guy Clinton appointed. Putting him in charge was almost as dumb as when the idiot Jimmy Carter fired my daddy." Bush the younger went on to say that Tenet, who he continually referred to as "that guy", had never figured out where Saddam had hidden the WMDs and always took too many of the White House's donuts.
"That guy would come over here talking about El Kabong and something about airplanes, but never about Saddam or Iraq unless Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld or I asked. Not only that, but by the time that guy was gone, the only donuts left were the yucky cake ones with no icing or sprinkles! Why one time there was even a pretzel in my box of donuts. I hate those things! My daddy would never take all the good donuts. Mom has him on that one diet where all you eat is bacon and eggs."
When he previously held the job of CIA director under President Gerald Ford, Bush the elder was not well received. After all, he had been involved in Watergate. Several senators including Gary Hart opposed his nomination. Columnist George Will called him "The wrong kind of guy at the wrong place at the worst possible time". How he will be received this time remains to be seen.
