Bush Insider Tells All! elvis-what-happened.jpg

Scott McClellan has revealed shocking details of the Bush White House: apparently they function in “permanent political campaign” mode.

Favorite Fun Fact Presented In Sentence of Unrelated Parts:

“McClellan describes Bush as able to convince himself of his own spin and relates a phone call he overheard Bush having during the 2000 campaign, in which he said he could not remember whether he had used cocaine. “I remember thinking to myself, ‘How can that be?’ ” he writes.”

Nixon: Justice At Last

The last member of one of the first bank robbery gangs to use Nixon masks has finally been caught.

Eighty-Four year old Carmine Jannece and colleagues robbed a Michigan bank 17 years ago, shortly after release of the film “Pointbreak” . The movie featured a gang wearing presidential masks, and spawned a wave of copycat First Robbers which has yet to stop.

I Regret Nothing!

It’s always great to hear from beloved old war criminal Henry Kissinger, and he does not disappoint in the latest “Lunch With the FT.”

A glancing effort comparing his perspective on Iraq:

“If we withdraw from Iraq, the radical elements in all the neighbouring Arab countries will be greatly encouraged.”

…leads to the triumphant return of the Domino Theory:

“the collapse in Vietnam was partly compensated for by the almost simultaneous and fortuitous disintegration of the Soviet Union.”

The 15 years he thus whisks away may seem but the twinkling of an eye to an elder statesman like Kissinger, but it also has the additional benefit of wiping out his post-Vietnam adventures supporting South Africa’s invasion of Angola and Indonesia’s of East Timor.

Kissinger clearly has something going on with the period, lying about it in his memoirs and as recently as

“He sparked the initiative to bring majority rule to southern Africa, a policy that was a major factor in ending colonialism there.”

Kissinger was so desperately blocking dominoes back then that he even pitched Frank Sinatra for help in Africa.



Fronting In Phoenix

The Gold Dust Twins bush-mccain-cake.jpg

The Bush Administration goes out as they ruled, flailing madly about and unable to keep their stories straight on items large and small.

Today’s sign of their decline: the partial collapse of a Bush fundraiser for the McCain campaign. In McCain’s hometown.

Ticket sales were bad, protesters loomed, so the thing shrank from the Phoenix Convention Center to a private home.

The White House made clear there was nothing to see here:

“A White House official said the event was being moved because the McCain campaign prefers private fundraisers and it is Bush administration policy to have events in public venues open to the media.”

A brisk dip into the past quickly found multiple Bush private, closed events.

Bush Opponents Look To The Future!

Only Interactivity Can Save Them! computers-that-saved-metrolpolis.jpg

Southern Methodist University Bush Library opponents have two months to block the future home of freedom in exile.

There’s no time to waste.

They don’t seem to have solved their wobbly supporter problem, but faith in the power to cloud men’s minds sustains them.

“The campaign will entail an intensive public relations effort incorporating print, internet, fax, radio, TV and advertising.”

The real trick up their collective sleeve will be the power of the nets, as they pledge themselves to:

” designing and uploading a high-quality website with blog and interactive capability.”

These mighty tasks have been entrusted to the dynamos at P&S Associates of Maine LLC, run by yet another Methodist clergyman. This is the team responsible for the “Impeach Bush for Peace” website, which incorporates all the bells and whistles planned for the blog that will block Bush.

I think that thing in the corner is a peach. Gaze upon the future!
