Well, last week we were getting ready for the state of the union address. Just earlier that day, Jon Stewart’s Daily Show had fun with at the president’s expense.
As a former Texan, I have had the chance to see his speaking ability for even longer the most Americans. Let me say, words are not George W. Bush’s best friends.
Well, I was re-telling the joke that Jon Stewart started off with, that being the State of the Union “matches up two bitter rivals, the President of the United State, and words.”
As I was leading into the joke, our (almost) 13 year old stops, looks at me, and asks “is this a joke about the president?” I said yes, and she quickly perked up and said “oh, I want to hear it.” A tear almost came to my eye.
