White House Grappling With Increased Shame
Oscar Night Fallout Prompts West Wing Head Hanging

WASHINGTON D.C. (Rhodes Media Services) -- Although it was a typically busy day for employees of the West Wing of the White House, hearts were heavy and heads hung low with shame following Michael Moore's Oscar night comments.

Moore, a college dropout turned independent film director, won an Oscar for his film "Bowling For Columbine." As part of his acceptance speech, he forcefully pointed his finger and called shame down on President George W. Bush.

"We are against this war, Mr. Bush. Shame on you, Mr. Bush. Shame on you," Moore shouted.

There was no comment from the White House as to whether the President felt a darkened cloud of shame enshroud him at the time of Moore's comments, but West Wing workers have taken it upon themselves to feel an appropriate amount of shame so that the administration can focus on more important things, such as the war in Iraq.

"Nothing burns worse than when someone says 'shame on you'" said Nicole Johnson, a morose-looking West Wing intern. "It's tough to deal with shame of this magnitude. Michael Moore is a big fat guy, so when he deals out the shame, there's a lot to go around. We're doing our part to ensure that Moore's shame bombardment doesn't reach the President. And, if it does reach him, it will be a diluted shame, kind of like the shame a dog feels after pooping on the carpet."
