I have been thinking of President George W. Bush’s approval ratings and what I might suggest to him in order to improve them if I was called upon to act as a consultant.
Well, first we must work with image. As the old saying goes, clothes make the man. However, desperate times require desperate actions. So, lets skip right past clothes and go directly to Halloween costumes
I know what you are thinking… No, I do not think a Captain Jack costume would be helpful. It plays right into the current stereotype.
However, if we could get his twins into these scandalous pirate costumes we might be able to divert attention away from him. In fact, I think that we would almost certainly be able to do so. It just might save his presidency.
But, back to the POTUS. What clothes would make this man? Star Wars themed costumes? No, I don’t think Chewbaca or Darth Maul would be of help to us here. And Superman just might be too much. Batman? No, his political enemies would work that in ways unbecoming.
This is more difficult than I first thought it would be. Well, there are more than 8,000 different costumes available at the Costume Cauldron so we should be able to find something that works. And, since George will be unemployed come January I know how he can save some money.
There is a secret HAUNTED HOUSE backdoor on the Costume Cauldron website that gets people a great discount. To get the discount, go to the homepage and halfway down on the right you will find a line that reads “Our Store now has over 8,000 masquerade items for you to choose from!” Click on the brown comma in that line and it will give you the discount code.
I’ve got it! The perfect way to send the message that President bush is committed to stopping global warming — he and the First Lady can begin a Mr. and Mrs. Snowman tour. President Roosevelt is remembered for saving the free world, President Lincoln saved the Union, and President Bush will be known as the President who save the Snowman. COOL! (literally)
