all the way to the bank

"The President of the U.S. is a very popular guy and he simply slayed the VIPs at the Alfalfa Dinner the other night, hosted by the famous Washington, D.C., club. These worthies included the cream of U.S. commerce, industry, politics and anyone else you can think of who counts.

The prez said he had good news and bad news from Saddam Hussein. "The good news is he is willing to let us inspect his biological and chemical warfare installations. The bad news is that he insists Arthur Andersen do the inspection!" . . . Speaking of Congressman John Dingell of Michigan, who was stopped by security at Reagan Airport and made to remove most of his clothes, the prez noted Dingell hadn't taken everything off. "Thank God," said George W. "that it wasn't Bob Dole!"

At one point someone said during the program: "Ladies and Gentlemen, I'd like to introduce President Bush, former President Bush and former President Dick Cheney." This got a big laugh."
