|To the editor:
We have the honor of raising $5,000,000 for a monument to George W. Bush. I am contacting you in hopes your readers will be willing to contribute to this noble cause. But first, a little about what the committee has been doing to date.
We originally wanted to put him on Mount Rushmore until we discovered that there was not enough room for two more faces.
We then decided to erect a statue of George in the Washington, DC Hall of Fame. We were in a quandary as to where the statue should be placed. It was not proper to place it beside the statue of George Washington, who never told a lie--or beside Richard Nixon, who never told the truth--because W could never tell the difference.
We finally decided to place it beside the statue of Christopher Columbus. He left not knowing where he was going; and, when he got there, he did not know where he was. He returned not knowing where he had been, decimated the well-being of the majority of the population while he was there, and did it all on someone else's money. As you can see, these two men have a great deal in common.

P.S. The Committee has raised $1.35 so far. So please be generous!
