WASHINGTON – The Post Times Sun Dispatch has learned from a reliable source that sometime after President Bush leaves office in January, he will ask NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to reinstate him in the White House. “If Goodell can reinstate Brett Favre to the Green Bay Packers,” said the source, who is close to the President, “than he can surely send George back to Washington. After all, Favre commanded a few guys on steroids, while George Bush commanded a whole damn army.”

Apparently Bush is having second thoughts about retiring to his ranch in Crawford, Texas. “There is only so much brush around here to mission accomplish,” Bush said, “so I’ll have to get the commish to Favricate me back to the oval office.”

Speculation is that Washington might not welcome Bush’s return. “We think he might be traded to another country,” said Bill Cook, a political insider, “Saudi Arabia would be a good fit as that country has a repressive government that runs on oil and believes in the death penalty.”

John McCain was asked what he would do if he is the President when Bush wants to come back. McCain said he would let Cheney decide. “I’m not about to be on the wrong side of a face off with Dick,” McCain told reporters. However, Barack Obama said changing the rules to allow a reinstatement is not the kind of change he’s been talking about.
