The Old Priest, Bush and Cheney

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

"Yes father" said the aide.

"I would really like to see George W. Bush and Dick Cheney before I die", whispered the priest.
"I'll see what I can do, father" replied the aide.
The aide sent the request to the White
House and waited for a response. Soon word arrived. Bush and Cheney would be delighted to visit the priest.

As they went to the hospital, Cheney said to Bush "I don't know why the old priest wants to see us, but it will certainly help our image."
George couldn't help but to agree.

When they arrived at the priest's room, the priest took George W.'s hand in his right hand and Dick's hand in his left. There was
silence and a look of serenity on the old priest's face.
Finally, George W. asked, "Father, of all the people you could have chosen, why did you choose for 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."

"Amen", said George.
"Amen", said Dick.

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

Don't you know who he thinks he is?
