White House finally discovers The Onion

Took awhile, but there we go: Bush has discovered The Onion, arguably the US's best satyrical news source. Ever. And he doesn't like what he sees.

The Onion, home of such headlines as Bush To Appoint Someone To Be In Charge Of Country and Bush Nominates First-Trimester Fetus To Supreme Court has had a field day with the Bush Administration ever since it came to power.

Looking back on those five years, it's amazing that it took so long. But then again, the current White House occupant freely admitted two years ago in a Fox TV interview that he doesn't read newspapers because he gets "briefed by people who have probably read the news themselves."

So apparently Bush finally got briefed by a White House staffer who probably read The Onion himself. How I would've loved to be a fly on the wall of that briefing room!
