Because it’s Friday and this made me laugh

One night, George W. Bush is tossing restlessly in his White House bed.He awakens to see George Washington standing by him. Bush asks him,”George, what’s the best thing I can do to help the country?”

“Set an honest and honorable example, just as I did,” Washington advises, then fades away.

The next night, Bush is astir again, and sees the ghost of Thomas Jefferson moving through the darkened bedroom. Bush calls out, “Tom, please! What is the best thing I could do to help the country?”

“Respect the Constitution, as I did,” Jefferson advises, and dims from sight.

The third night sleep is still not in the cards for Bush. He awakens to see the ghost of F. D. R. hovering over his bed. Bush whispers,”Franklin, What is the best thing I could do to help the country?”

“Help the less fortunate, just as I did,” FDR replies and fades into the mists.

Bush isn’t sleeping well the fourth night when he sees another figure moving in the shadows.

It is the ghost of Abraham Lincoln. “Abe, what is the best thing I can do right now, to help the country?” Bush pleads.

Abe replies, “My advice is, do something relaxing. Go see a play!”

    I kind of wish this joke had gone on and on, all the way through all the presidents. What kind of boring-ass thing would Hoover have suggested? “Go see my dam.”
