"I'm not looking. All old houses moan and creak in the dark"... 3 November, 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000403

The scene takes place in the bedroom of George Bush, President of the United States. The president is starting up in bed with his eyes firmly closed refusing to look at the looming faceless figure of Death dressed in a black hooded-cloak and carrying a scythe in one hand and an egg-timer in the other. The word 'Iraq' is printed on the front of the figure's cloak. Beside the president is a teddy bear wearing a cowboy hat. The reference is to President Bush's increasingly unpopular presence in Iraq.
