Bush targets himself and those elusive weapons of mass destruction at dinner

President Bush poked fun at his staff, his Democratic challenger and himself Wednesday night at a black-tie dinner where he hobnobbed with the news media.

Bush put on a slide show, calling it the “White House Election-Year Album” at the Radio and Television Correspondents’ Association 60th annual dinner, showing himself and his staff in some decidedly unflattering poses.

There was Bush looking under furniture in a fruitless, frustrating search. “Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be somewhere,” he said.

Self-deprecating humor is welcome in a President, but this is decidedly not funny from a so-called “War President.” Nearly 600 Americans have been killed in Iraq.
