Reagan Scion Calls for Pissing Out of the Tent

Shape Up, Punks!  reagan-michael-pistol.png

Michael Reagan is taking a break from identyfying New Reagans in order to diss the post-catastropy Republican field.

” We are attaching ourselves to certain individuals, and as a result we have become a party of people and not a party of principles. We are Romney-ites, or Huckabee or Giuliani devotees, or McCain-ites, or supporters of Gov. Sarah Palin – when we need to be just plain Republicans…In the Balkans, warfare between factions was the status quo. As Republicans, if we continue to Balkanize and fail to unite, then fighting one another will be our party’s status quo.”

Stirring words from a man who upon his death compared Gerald Ford with Saddam Hussein.

Bush: The Great Escape

Dare, Double Dare Ya!  bush-chin.jpg

The Bush Administration looks headed for a clean getaway,  with a final bit of brazenness to top off their many scams.

It now appears Bush will deny us even the pleasure of outrage against his much anticipated torture ‘n wiretapping pardons.   He’ll leave town and essentially dare the Democrats to pursue him.

The Wall Street Journal says the Bushies are inclined to brazen it out, and besides

Some former Bush administration officials have argued against a blanket pardon for post-9/11 activities, saying it would be tantamount to an admission that the Bush policies weren’t legal.

We’ve already heard from the President Elect that he’s inclined to let sleeping rocks lie, and his illustrious Democratic predecessor has hosted one of the legal architects of torture at his library in Little Rock, so it looks like a safe bet.

Enjoy Getting Things Done!

Layover of destiny: Kennedy’s Fast Road To Dallas

TCU Killed Kennedy!  tcualert_gray.gif

Now it can be told!  the Fort Worth Star-Telegram is working the hell out of JFK’s pre-assassination overnight in Ft. Worth, and revisits once again Texas Christian University’s role in the road to martyrdom.

Kennedy’s plans originally included receipt of a TCU  honorary degree, but they changed when TCU’s board rejected the Papist President as not the right type of Christian.

In one of history’s great Woulda  Coulda Shouldas, a TCU degree ceremony might have pushed Kennedy’s Dallas motorcade later in the day, spoiling Oswald’s shot.

Stay Classy, Dallas!

Bush: Regrets, I’ve Had A Few

Still Got It!   bush-s-shocking-last-days.jpg

Being on this ship reminds me of when I went to the USS Abraham Lincoln and they had a sign that said “Mission Accomplished.” I regret that sign was there. It was a sign aimed at the sailors on the ship, but it conveyed a broader knowledge. To some it said, well, Bush thinks the war in Iraq is over, when I didn’t think that. But nonetheless, it conveyed the wrong message. So, there are things I’ve regretted.”

An improvement over blaming sailors for a banner created by his staff and lined up perfectly with camera positions, but “had a sign,” and  “that sign was there” ain’t exactly owning up.
