NEW YORK – Due to the success of George W. Bush’s cameo appearance on NBC-TV’s popular “Deal or No Deal,” the President will soon appear on other TV shows.” “It was so exciticating to be on the TV,” said President Bush, “and not have reporter folks pesticate me with questions that try and make me look like some kind of dunce who can’t even complete a sentence without, you know.”

The President taped a “good luck video” in the White House library for “Deal or No Deal” contestant Captain Joe Kobes who served in Iraq. The President said, “I am here to supporticate Private or whatever his rank Joe Krebbs or whatever his name is as a real hero for going to Iraq for three times and wishing him luck to have three jobs waiting at home for him whenever he gets back, and of course, having them jobs ready will be the responsibility of the next President.”

“The show’s producers contacted the White House after learning that Captain Kobes wanted to meet the President,” White House spokesman Tony Fratto said. “I just wanted to hear from the guy who had the guts to send me and my buddies back to Iraq for three tours of duty,” Kobes said. “The least the President could do for me was to bring along his friends who won him Florida in 2000 and Ohio in 2004 so they could help fix things for me with NBC in 2008. I really need the million dollar prize to send to my wife back home to help pay for gas so she can drive to her three jobs.”

The President will be careful what he does on TV to preserve the dignity of the highest office,” said Fratto, “so the next show he will appear on will be Bravo’s new reality show “America’s Next Disgraced President,” and then he will be part of an episode of ABC-TV’s “Lost” where he can show just how lost he is when it comes to foreign policy, domestic policy or determining his posterior from a hole in the ground.” Fratto has since left his White House position to spend more time with his family.
