A man died and went to heaven. When he was met by the Angel Gabriel he noticed behind him a wall of unimaginable proportions that was completely covered with clocks.
"What are they?" he asked the heavenly angel in complete surprise.
"They are lie clocks. Each time you lie, the hand moves a little bit to the right. See that one?" the angel pointed to one that hadn't moved at all, "that's Mother Theresa's, who has never told a lie. And that one," he points to another, "That was Abraham Lincoln's. He only ever told two lies."
The man looked around with some interest, then wandered back over to the angel again. "Excuse me," he asked, "but where is George W. Bush's clock?"
The angel gestured far off into the distance.
"The Lord Jesus is using it in his office for a celing fan."
A situation that had veered out of control
Republicans close to the White House said the speech was an attempt to seize the initiative in a situation that had veered out of control during the president's August working vacation at his Texas ranch.
Tonight a White House official said that Mr. Bush would use the speech to talk about the need for more international troops in Iraq, but that he would not specifically address the cost of the war or when American troops would come home.
Mr. McClellan said Mr. Bush had first raised the possibility of a national address with his staff during his trip last week to St. Louis, where he delivered a speech in which he called the continuing fighting in Iraq a critical moment in the campaign against terrorism.
"During August the president spent a considerable amount of time talking to his national security team and military leaders about our ongoing efforts on the war on terrorism and making assessments about our needs," Mr. McClellan said. "So the president has been assessing our needs and looking at what's needed going forward."http://www.nytimes.com/2003/09/06/politics/06PREX.html?ex=1063425600&en=1dca77199c3a26eb&ei=5062&partner=GOOGLE
