FOUR GHOSTS OF THE WHITE
HOUSE

One night, George W. Bush is tossing restlessly
in his White
House bed.

He awakens to see George Washington standing by him. 
Bush asks him,

"George, what's the best thing I can do to help the
country?"

"Set an honest and honorable example, just as I did",
Washington
advises, and then fades
away.

The next night, Bush is astir again, and sees the ghost of
Thomas
Jefferson moving through the darkened
bedroom.

Bush calls out, "Tom, please!  What is the best thing I can
do to
help the country?"

"Respect the Constitution, as I did",
Jefferson advises, and dims
from
sight............

The third night sleep still does not come for
Bush.  He awakens to
see the ghost of FDR hovering over his
bed.

Bush whispers, "Franklin, what is the best thing I can do to
help
the country?"

"Help the less fortunate, just as I did", FDR
replies, and fades
into the mist.............

Bush isn't sleeping well
the fourth night when he sees another
figure moving in the shadows.  It
is the ghost of Abraham Lincoln.

Bush pleads, "Abe, what is the best
thing I can do right now to
help the country?"

 
Lincoln
replies, "Go see a play."
