Fwd: Wise old Priest

I normally don't care for email forwards, but I liked this one:

=================
A WISE OLD PRIEST

The old priest lay dying in the hospital. For years He had
faithfully served the people of the nation's capital. He
motioned for his nurse to come near.

"Yes, Father?" said the nurse.

"I would really like to see Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi before I
die", whispered the priest.

"I'll see what I can do, Father" replied the nurse.

The nurse sent the request to them and waited for a response.
Soon the word arrived. Harry and Nancy would be delighted to
visit the priest.

As they went to the hospital, Harry commented to Nancy "I don't
know why the old priest wants to see us, but it will certainly
help our images."

Nancy couldn't help but agree.

When they arrived at the priest's room, the priest took Nancy's
hand in his right hand and Harry's hand in his left. There was
silence and a look of serenity on the old priest's face.

Finally Nancy spoke. "Father, of all the people you could have
chosen, why did you choose us to be with you as you near the
end?"

The old priest slowly replied "I have always tried to pattern my
life after our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."


The old priest continued... "He died between two lying thieves.
I would like to do the same."

Dude, that joke was about Bush and Cheney. Just more proof that Republicans can't do comedy.

no doubt it was. heck it might have been older than that, it could be decades old.

I know a lot of stuff I've seen video of Dan Quayle saying was recycled into Bush material.
