  • “Hello, Moe’s Tavern? Yes, I’m looking for Amanda Hugginkiss… oh, shoot I just screwed it up!”


    “KBBL’s gonna gimme somethin’ stupid!… Oh, sorry, Mr. Putin. I’m trying to win an elephant, long story…”


    “Why, yes, Mr. Rather, I swear to you here and now, live on the air, this is really and truly the President and I am resigning effective tomorrow… um, can you hold on a second? Baba-Boey is on the other line…”


    “I have a call from who? Who the hell is Spoonie Luv???”


    “Why yes, my refrigerator is running, why do you ask?”

  • President Bush thanks Saddam Hussein for the roses he sent, but informs him that there is really nothing he can do about the trial starting next week. Hussein takes the news poorly.

  • Steve Crickmore

    Pardon, me?.. Who’s speaking? Karl, is that you? No, I don’t think I can pardon every Tom, Dick and you, Scary. Sure, I know you’re all my cronies. And you can judge a man by the friends he keeps. But, I’ll have to speak to Harriet about that. Harriet? Damn, where did she go?

  • Lloyd

    “Hi, is this Leslie Stahl? Great, listen. Since my setup with those troops went so well, let me fax you a list of questions to ask me on 60 Minutes. And remember, during the story you want to try real hard to pretend that you’re happy that democracy has come to Iraq…”

  • ..”$50 on SMU and the points, and I’ll take the Cowboys to cover for $50…”

  • shreck

    “Hey Dick, I’ve got some great news, I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance…”

  • retired military

    “Saddam! How’s it going?
    Yeah I know your trial starts soon. Where was the gang of 14 during the Senate vote on the war? Well I see if I can get John McCain to come see you and you can ask him. I mean we know he will do anything for a photo op. No, I cant do any better than that!. Not you too! Look Harriet Mier’s credentials are as plain as the WMD on your face.! Have a nice trial towelhead!!”

  • fooltomery

    “Yeah, uh-huh, that’s right…Harriet! (laughing) Is that a hoot or what? Dang, it’s good to be the President.”

  • stan25

    Karl, now that grand jury thing is over with, could you and Dick Cheney set up that machine to start an earthquake under the office of Ronnie Earle?


    I don’t care how you do it, just do it and blame it on Hillary.

  • “Hello is this the head of Nick at Nite?… Yeah, President Bush here.

    Listen, I know you don’t normally take requests but I would consider it a peronal favor if you could play that episode of Three’s Company where they have that big misunderstanding but everything works out in the end.

    I see. Umm-hmm. I see. Right.

    Gosh I feel silly. Let’s just pretend this call never happened ok?”

    (With apologies to the Big Bopper and “Chantilly Lace”)

    Helllooo baby, yeah, this is the Big W speaking
    Oh you sweet thing
    Do I what?
    Will I what?
    Oh baby, you know what I like

    To choose my lawyer chick as my Supreme pick
    Forget about Janice Rogers Brown
    Though my base may squawk, perhaps some even balk
    They wouldn’t dare to vote you down
    Of you they’ve never heard, so they must trust my word
    Because you are my crony they will call you phony
    I’ll just tell Lott and Frist that you are evangelist
    You’re my girl, oh baby you’re the one I like

    What’s that Harriet?
    You say I’m great, so you I should nominate
    But you ain’t got noooooooo priors, Miers
    (Heh-heh-heh) Oh alright baby, you know what I like

  • My refrigerator is running again? Which way did it go this time?

  • Bush: No I don’t think “Amanda Holdme” is here but I’ll check.

    Hey, is Amanda Holdme here?
    I need Amanda Holdme right now!
    Rove: [off camera] Moron.

  • Nicholas

    “So I said to Jerry that he really should send his daughter to a different school but his wife, Shirley, was so set on that one but it’s such a terrible shame… oh yes, I know… well you know how girls can be these days… sorry Fred but I really have to go, I promised Tom that I’d tell him the shocking news I heard yesterday from Mavis about the Patterson’s son… no I don’t know why they let him get away with it either, say hello to the kids from me. Ta-taa!”

  • Margaret, get me Dan Rather. Oh, and turn on the Mary Mapes voice scrambler. I’m feeling a little mean right now.

  • retired military

    Hello. Karl? Hey I need your help again. I need you to make up with official looking dirt on Harriet Miers, backdate it to oh about 1985 or so, yeah the middle of the Reagan years. Then send a faxed copy of it to Bill Burkett in an plain brown envelope. Yeah the same way you did that national guard stuff. You may want to do the same thing with Tom Delay and Ronnie Earl just to help him out a bit. Yeah yeah send it to that news chick in the canoe. The press wont think anything of it. All they have to see is it is a way to get at me so they wont do any fact checking at all. By then it will be too late and they will have Dan Rather doing a comeback reporting breaking news. Okay Karl you know what to do.

  • “The only way I’ll appear on 60 minutes if Harry Reasner does the interveiw.”

    Scene: A week prior to nominating Harriet Miers for the Supreme Court President Bush receives a strange phone call.

    “Hello. Yes, I have made up mind. It is going to be Janice Rogers Brown. I understand. She is not the one I am looking for. She should go about her business. The one I am looking for is Harriet Miers. Of Course. I understand. After I hang up I will forget that I ever received a phone call from Harriet’s twin brother.”

    Hey Scott. How’s it going? Hey you know we got this new get to know Harriet campaign kicking off this week and I need to know the talking points.

    Lets see. She worked with me for 10 years. Got it.
    She was first woman in charge of the Texas Bar. Got it.
    A lot of Supreme Court justices havent been judges in the past. Got it.
    Hey Scott these are the same things we have been saying and they smell like last month’s BBQ. You got anything different for me.
    Her middle name isnt Day. Hey that is a new one. Good job. Keep up the good work.

  • Your program’ll double my IQ or no money back?
