Bubonic Plague More Popular Than George W. Bush
Washington, D.C. - For the first time in the history of the Gallup organization, a deadly disease has received a higher favorability rating from the American people than the president of the United States. Specifically, the dreaded Bubonic Plague which has brought death and devastation since the Dark Ages is now preferred over President George W. Bush by a margin of more than two to one.
In making this startling announcement, Jonathan Figby, president of Gallup, said "Never, never ever have we seen these kind of poll results. We've been shaking our heads at Gallup all day long, checking and rechecking, and to our astonishment all of the figures are correct. The only interpretation we can offer is that the American people have come to the conclusion that a vicious life threatening bacteria is now considered less threatening and more likable than the man who currently resides in the White House."
Still, President Bush can take some comfort in the fact that he remains more popular than Dick Cheney who the American people view less favorably than dog shit.
