Bush's strange sense of humor

Against the backdrop of reports that his administration is preparing for war against Iran (scroll down to earlier post, "Here's some exciting news"), President Bush finds cause to chuckle about the matter.

Consider this incident reported the other day by UPI:

At a farewell reception at Blair House for the retiring chief of protocol, Don Ensenat, who was President Bush's Yale roommate, the president shook hands with Washington Life Magazine's Soroush Shehabi.

A grandson of one of the late Shah's ministers, Soroush said, "Mr. President, I simply want to say one U.S. bomb on Iran and the regime will remain in power for another 20 or 30 years and 70 million Iranians will become radicalized."

"I know," President Bush answered.

"But does Vice President Cheney know?" asked Soroush.

The president chuckled and walked away.
