Good Cop, Bad Cop
So as Bush's poll numbers dive like one of Cheney's hunting partners, the President is trying a new tactic, being nice. Senators are being asked into the Oval Office to discuss what's on their minds. Intimate cocktail parties for lawmakers and their spouses are being held on the Truman Balcony, complete with tours of the Lincoln Bedroom.
However, despite this Republican glastnost, it's hard for Bu$hCo to leave old habits behind. While the President plays kissy-face with Dennis Hastert (there's a visual I bet you didn't need over your morning coffee), the Veep has been unleashed to do Bush's dirty work, pressuring the Senate Armed Services Committee to bend the law to the administration's will--going behind Arlen Specter's back to keep the Judiciary Committee from investigating Bu$hCo's illegal domestic surveillance program.
Not that it will matter come December. Can you imagine Laura Bush inviting Nancy Pelosi on a tour of the Lincoln Bedroom:
Mrs. Bush: So Nancy...what do you think?
Rep. Pelosi: I think your husband's an idiot! Get me another G&T.
Fear her, America!
I do like Harry Reid though.
Oh yeah, think for yourself and stop listening to Savage.
It fits this government’s MO of simply renaming whatever doesn’t work.
But if Bush proclaims himself a god and starts having intimate relations with his horse, I’m out of here!
If Bush is serious about getting in touch with congress, he'll need to serve something stronger than lemonade and iced tea.
Betty, so true! Long Island Iced Tea and Lemon Drops (the vodka kind)?
Cartledge, if Bush prostitues Bill Frist's wife, I don't even want to know.
Rex, "Gore and Teddy" or "Teddygore" Eeeewwww!
WS, now there was an overshare. Is Pelosi married? I can't remember...just checked it out...Paul Pelosi. Hmmm, gonna have to share that bedroom.
Pelosi is a bitch..as are most women in power.I don't mean this as a knock to ol Nance..just saying.
The Shrub is kissin ass all over the place lately..gasp..but it is election season..more holy than hunting season.
Hey LC what's the conventional wisdom on November...which house? Both? Neither?
