From Leader of the Knights who say 'Ni' to Leader of the Free World!
Michael Palin's Secretary of State could well be Roger the Shrubber. Perhaps Michael's campaign might then do a little better than Sarah's on foreign policy, and could provide a more coherent answer to Charlie Gibson's questionning (see the video below for Sarah's response and then decide which is better).
Charlie Gibson: Do you agree with the Bush Doctrine?
Roger the Shrubber: In what respect Charlie?
Charlie Gibson: What do you interpret it to be?
Roger the Shrubber: His horticultural view?
Charlie Gibson: No, no, the Bush Doctrine. He enunciated it in September 2002 before the Iraq War.
Roger the Shrubber: I agree with the principle but not with the name. I think every garden in America needs a 'bush', as you call it, or what I'd call a shrub. I'd like to see the new President, whoever he may be, redefine it as the Shrub Doctrine.
Putting semantics aside for the moment, even those who arrange and design shrubberies are under considerable economic stress at this period in history. Like I said earlier, I think a shrub in every American garden can only be good for those of us who design, arrange and sell shrubberies.
Convincing, huh? Then compare that with this:
