He'll Bush For a Conviction

From Netscape News:

It was revealed last week that President Bush was summoned for jury duty in his home state of Texas, but has asked that he be allowed to postpone the duty to a later date.

Apparently, the summons was sent to Bush's ranch in mid-November, but nobody thought to check the mail down there.

"When we learned about it, I think through media reports, we did reach out to the court to find out about this jury summons," said Scott McClellan, the White House press secretary. "Also," he added, "The homeless guy who's always out on Constitution Avenue was talking to one of the interns on his way into work this morning, and he said something like, I don't know, there's a war, I guess, going on in the Middle East somewhere. We're looking into it."

McClellan emphasised that, despite having asked to reschedule, the President does very much want to be on a jury, explaining: "He really enjoyed that movie with John Cusack."

That W guy would make the ideal juror: unaffected by any external stimuli.
