Musings from George


Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?

I borrowed this one from an online post that I found by accidental Googling (serendipigle)?

One night, George W. Bush is tossing restlessly in his White House bed. He awakens to see George Washington standing by him. Bush asks him, “George, what’s the best thing I can do to help the country?” “Set an honest and honorable example, just as I did,” Washington advises, and then fades away. The next night, Bush is astir again, and sees the ghost of Thomas Jefferson moving through the darkened bedroom. Bush calls out, “Tom, please! What is the best thing I can do to help the country?” “Respect the Constitution, as I did.” Jefferson advises, and dims from sight. The third night sleep is still not in the cards for Bush. He awakens to see the ghost of FDR hovering over his bed. Bush whispers, “Franklin, what is the best thing I can do to help the country?” “Help the less fortunate, just as I did,” FDR replies and fades into the mist. Bush isn’t sleeping well the fourth night when he sees another figure moving in the shadows. It is the ghost of Abraham Lincoln. Bush pleads, “Abe, what is the best thing I can do right now to help the country?” Lincoln replies, “Go see a play.”
