Tidbit (Classic Debate Maneuvering)

LOWERING EXPECTATIONS FOR DEBATE, WHITE HOUSE SAYS BUSH HAS I.Q. OF 67

Spokesman Shows Footage of President Tumbling from Bike

In what some political insiders were calling an attempt to lower expectations in the days leading up to the first presidential debate, the White House today announced that President Bush has an I.Q. of 67.

""The president is far, far less intelligent than is commonly thought,"" White House spokesman Scott McClellan told reporters. ""Even the simplest tasks remain well beyond his reach.""

Reinforcing the impression that the president will be overmatched in Thursday's debate with Sen. John Kerry, Mr. McClellan showed reporters never-before-seen footage of Mr. Bush oafishly tumbling from his mountain bike.

""What a moron,"" Mr. McClellan said.

The White House spokesman said that Mr. Bush cannot possibly be expected to do well in a debate with Sen. Kerry, who Mr. McClellan said ""has an I.Q. of 193"" and ""is widely considered the best debater on the planet.""

But within minutes of the White House press conference, Kerry spokesman Joe Lockhart fired back, telling reporters, ""John Kerry is much stupider than he looks.""

As evidence of Mr. Kerry's idiocy, Mr. Lockhart referred to the floral-patterned windsurfing pants the senator wears while enjoying his favorite water sport.

""His ass looks enormous in those pants,"" Mr. Lockhart said. ""What kind of a moron would leave the house with his ass looking like that?""
