Washington (f-A-ke. P.) -
As President Bush embarks on his Latin American tour, the White House has announced that it is no longer cost effective to produce the adoring crowds that accompany the Mr. Bush to all of his speeches.
Americans are too expensive and, quite frankly, no longer as enthusiastic as we need them to be. You can't count on the Latin Americans either. Might shout pro-Chavez slogans at any moment. So we've decided to go with Bollywood extras. They're cheap. You can't beat 'em for enthusiasm. They look great, and man can they dance!...explained Press Secretary Snow.
When asked if this might be referred to as "image out-sourcing" Mr. Snow declined to comment.
Ah yes...divine retribution.
Peacechick... We're doomed. They'll outsource liberal outrage soon enough.
TPM... It's the newest trend.
CitizenBoo... No thanks. If it's like all Bollywood flicks, then the singing is dubbed in. They'll use John Ashcroft.
but I'd pay cash to see W dance with any Latin American.....
TFWY... You'd really wish Bush on someone else? Heartless. Chavez is enough of a freak show.
Callooh... I'd pay good money to see Bush dance the Macarena.
PT... Do ya think "Bush groupie" pays better than a high-tech job?
PoP... How about Gwen Stefani's Harajuki Girls?
Praguetwin... Hard to say really. This one popped into my head when I was thinking about where Bush was going to get those adoring crowds that show up for all his speeches. Then it occured to me...who looks happier than Bollywood extras? After that it was merely getting the right photos. The background is 'Bride and Prejudice'. The foreground is Bush at the Chinese state function where he couldn't open the door. :-)
Fred... Couldn't say about the "clone stamp" I don't know what it is, but I think that most of the tools for doing image manipulation are there.
