Great Joke -- Smile!

Tom's Journal.

Great  Joke !   Smile !

In Washington, D.C., an old priest lay dying in the hospital.  For
years he had faithfully served the people of the nation's capital and
was well known among the elected officials.  He motioned for his nurse
to come near.

"Yes, Father?" said the nurse.
"I would really like to see President Obama and Senator Reid before I
die," whispered the priest.
"I'll see what I can do, Father," replied the nurse.
The nurse sent the request to the President and Congress and waited
for a response.
Soon the word arrived; President Obama and Harry Reid would be
delighted to visit the priest.
As they went to the hospital, Obama commented to Reid, "I don't know
why the old priest wants to see us, but it will certainly help our
images.” Reid agreed that it was a good thing.
When they arrived at the priest's room, the priest took Obama's hand
in his right hand and Reid's hand in his left hand.  There was silence
and a look of serenity on the old priest's face.
Finally President Obama spoke. "Father, of all the people you could
have chosen, why did you choose us to be with you as you near the
The old priest slowly replied, "I have always tried to pattern my life
after our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ."
"Amen", said Obama. "Amen", said Reid.
The old priest continued, "Jesus died between two lying thieves; I
would like to do the same."
