Once you start mocking, you just can't stop

From the Tribune: Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama mocked President Bush during an appearance on ABC News' "This Week with George Stephanopoulos":

"It's not just talking tough, because the truth is nobody's talked tougher than George Bush over the last six years. Being tough means, first of all, not having to talk about it all the time," Obama said.
Of course Bush wasn't in the room when Obama mocked him. If he had been, what might it have looked like? Perhaps like this ...
"Oooh ... mission accomplished, huh, W.?"

With the favorable news coverage, Obama could then go on to mock other opponents:
"Oooh ... you've got Secret Service protection, huh? Well, so do I."

And he could hit other Democratic hopefuls, like John Edwards:
"You and Kerry couldn't even beat the Worst President Ever!"

Then, on to Joe Biden:
"I'll give you 'articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.'"

Why stop? It's the primaries, but might as well hit those Republicans:
"Oooh ... why don't you and Bush get a room, McCain?"

And let's not forget Rudy:
"What's a-matter? Your ex-wives giving you a headache?"
