"Apparently Mr. Bush loves doing imitations of Dr. Evil from the 'Austin Powers' movies."

How ingenious.

What lines does he use?

"Why must I be surrounded by frickin' idiots?"

"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my underground lair. I have gathered here before me the world's deadliest assassins."

"When Dr. Evil gets angry, Mr. Bigglesworth gets upset, and when Mr. Bigglesworth gets upset people DIE!"

"My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy."

I'm picturing this, when anyone is bringing him bad news:

He must of read about the art of imitation in one of those 100 or so books he read.

Considering all the hysterical claims of what the president is 'really' like and what he's going to do to everybody and everything, I think this shows the man has a pretty good sense of humor.

Matt Brown said...

I wonder how many people he has accused of being "insolent." Probably a lot...

What Mr. Bush, a.k.a. Mr. Evil, says to his cabinet members:

"Shh! Let me tell you a little story about a man named Shh! Shh! Even before you start. That was a preemptive Shh. Just know I have a whole bag of Shh with your name on it."

Well that is classic. Bush doing a Dr. Evil impersonation must simply send the liberals into fits.

I can picture him bouncing a big rubber ball of the Earth on some hapless minion's head and yelling "The world is mine!"

"Lets invade Iran so Haliburton can get one billion dollars!

Well he notched up a few points in my book.

Yes, indeed, Austin Powers is funny. I just watched the YouTube embed and am practically crying.

jane said...

That clip hurt my bruised ribs.

I like Bush and can see him talking about getting his jomo working. Dryly. Or not.

Well, there was the pre-war intelligence suggesting that Hussein was creating sharks with frickin' laser beams.

Beth said...

I'm capable of perceiving this as a joke, but when I do, I don't see a man serious about being president.

jane said...

Playing sax on Arsenio Hall and telling us on MTV what underwear he wears, OTOH...

I love Austin Powers but still hate Bush.

I always like the line about "excuse me that's Doctor Evil, I didn't spend four years in Evil Medical School so people could go around calling me Mister Evil, thank you."

I am sure that it doesn't quite compare with Bill Clinton's Ron Jeremy imitation.

Although I hear that FDR did a great Raymond Burr

Well, there's one American who misses the Jimmy Carter years...

Trooper York said...

I hear that Hillary does a picture perfect Louise Fletcher

Now that's just plain cold!

Trooper York said...

Did you ever notice that Barack and Urkel are never seen in the same place...I think they have a Latoya/Michael thing going on.

While our President is doing his hilarious imitations...who's running this circus???

Report: Air Force lost track of five nuclear missiles

Mistakes by U.S. Air Force personnel left five nuclear warheads unaccounted for during a three-hour period on Aug. 30, according to Army Times.

Only FIVE??

I don't recall anyone ever saying this idiot didn't have a sense of humor. Only that he was inept.

Why when I heard this did I get a mental image of Dubya as "Mini-Me" or Scott, the Alienated Son - doing the lines to the One With All the Authority, HW Bush.

"Just shoot him! No sharks! This is sooo stupid! Let me get a gun. I'll do it!"

On the other hand, I had this other mental image of him calling Pelosi, Teddy, Reid, Dean, and a Code Pink delegation in for a "bipartisan meeting" on Iraq - only for the purpose of laying "Doctor Evil" lines on them and watching them go batshit crazy in BDS.

Trooper York - I am sure that it doesn't quite compare with Bill Clinton's Ron Jeremy imitation.

Supposedly a pale, crooked little imitation to the real thing.

Isn't Rummy in a flying Big Boy in space somewhere?

Trooper York said...

True Cedarford…but enthusiasm counts for a lot …think a sweaty Sammy Davis Jr. doing Jimmy Cagney…and I think you got it.

blake said...

jane!

Did you fall off your Segway!?

jane said...

Ha- something like that (passenger in a car that sheared a big utility pole in two.) Pretty clumsy, eh :) Funny kills at the moment.

Very nice of you to ask!

rcocean said...

Sorry, but Austin Powers is not funny.

Maybe if Myers had not been so "over the top" in asking us to laugh with an evil scientist engaged in child abuse, sexism, and crime; I'd find it funny.

I don't find evil Belgium scientists, who've just been unfrozen, holding the world hostage for 1 billion dollars, amd wanting to kill people with sharks with frick'n lasers on the tops of their heads funny.

No, I think we're better than that.

blake said...

lol, rcocean

Hey, jane, glad it was only a few bruised ribs in that case. Hope it wasn't filmed and uploaded to YouTube....

According to the Sydney Morning Herald of Australia, the president gave a more-to-the-point assessment to Australia Deputy Prime Minister Mark Vaile.

"We're kicking ass," Bush said to Vaile Tuesday, according the Herald, after the deputy prime minister inquired about his trip to Iraq.
