An airplane was about to crash; there were 5 passengers on board, but only 4 parachutes.

The first passenger said, "I am President Obama, the chosen one. The world needs me, I can't afford to die." So he took the first parachute and left the plane.

The second passenger, Nancy Pelosi, said, "I am the Speaker of the House. And I am the smartest woman in American history, so America 's people don't want me to die." She took the second parachute and jumped out of the plane.

The third passenger, John Kerry, said, "I'm a Senator, and a decorated war hero from the Army of the United States of America ." So he grabbed the parachute next to him and jumped.

The fourth passenger, ex-President George W. Bush, said to the fifth passenger, a 10-year-old schoolgirl, "I have lived a full life, and served my country the best I could. I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute."

The little girl said, "That's okay, Mr. President. There's a parachute left for you. America 's smartest woman took my schoolbag."

funny how most people that get "offended" by this kind of stuff are the same guys who thought all the Bush jokes were freakin hilarious.

If you can't find humor in a political joke, simply because it is aimed at "your side"...you are a partisan hack.

It was pedestrian at best.

Here is a better one:

Dear Lord, you took my favorite actor, Patrick Swayze. You took my favorite actress, Farah Fawcett. You took my favorite singer, Michael Jackson. I just wanted to let you know that my favorite President is Barack Obama. Amen.

Replace Palin with Pelosi and you would have thought it was hilarious.

I thought it was very funny. :)
I thought it was funny the first time I saw it when it was aimed at Hillary Clinton. IIRC, there was a similar joke going round about Bush a few years ago.

I had to reread that countless times before I got the joke.

Not a similar joke. It was the same joke.
