Presidential Antics

George Bush visits a primary school classroom. The students are in the middle of a discussion about words are their related meanings. The teacher asks President Bush if he would like to lead the discussion on the word tragedy. So the illustrious Member asks the class for an example of a tragedy. One little boy stands up and offers: "If my best friend who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and the tractor runs over him, that would be a tragedy".
"No," says Bush , "that would be an accident".
A little girl raises her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy".
"I'm afraid not," explains President Bush . "That's what we would call a great loss".
The room goes silent. No other children volunteered. Bush searches the room..."isn't there someone who can give an example of a tragedy"?
Finally, at the back of the room a small boy raises his hand. In a quiet voice, he says: "If your campaign plane, carrying you, Mr. Bush were struck by a 'friendly fire' missile and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy".
"Fantastic!" "That's right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?"
"Well," says the boy "because it certainly wouldn't be a 'great loss ' and it sure as hell wouldn't be an accident!!!
