Bush presidency plutoed

A recent Andy Borowitz humor column (which I caught in the January 2007 Funny Times) reports that the Bush presidency has been plutoed:

An international group of scientists who demoted the planet Pluto to dwarf status three months ago met in Oslo, Norway today and reclassified the Bush White House as a dwarf Presidency.

... with the President's approval rating in a free fall, it became clear even before the scientists convened that some sort of reclassification along the lines of the Pluto demotion was in order.

I hear rumors that the President plans to surge supporters to improve his approval rating.
