FOX Chief's Joke Paints Bush as Imbecile

FOX News chief Roger Ailes joke comparing Barack Obama to Osama bin Laden came with lots of blowback. For saying:

"And it is true that Barack Obama is on the move. I don't know if it's true that President Bush called [Pakistani President Pervez] Musharraf and said, `Why can't we catch this guy?'"

Besides trying to equate Senator Obama with the world's most notorious terrorist, Roger made President George W. Bush look like a buffoon for not knowing the difference. Reminding the populace that Osama bin Laden remains on the run could be another dig on "Dead or Alive" Bush. From here Bush looks less alive everyday. His ability to lead long gone, his political chest heaves in belabored fashion. Does he have enough good air to laugh at Roger's joke or will it ellicit a four letter word tirade after he ponders "the joke"?
