Meanderer-in-Chief

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The collapse of a White House-backed overhaul of U.S. immigration laws was the starkest sign yet of President George W. Bush’s dwindling influence during a second term undone by chaos in Iraq and last year’s congressional election losses, analysts said.
…snip…
“This was a clear demonstration of how little influence the White House now has in Congress,” said Cal Jillson, a political analyst at Southern Methodist University in Texas.

Peter Pace Presents a Peck of Pressing Problems…..

From Think Progress:

Gen. Peter Pace is the first Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff not to be renominated for a second term since the military was centralized under the joint chiefs position 21 years ago.

Today, Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced that the reason he made this unusual decision was because the administration wants to avoid a “contentious” nomination hearing with hard questions about the war in Iraq

But was that the real reason, or is it better to slightly skew the facts about General Pace?

The Beverly Hil-libbys?

Here’s my pitch to the Hollywood bigwigs for a new TV show: Scooter Libby and Paris Hilton are working on a prison chain gang. They don’t like each other, but when an opportunity to escape arises, they take it, despite being shackled together. They wind up in Beverly Hills, where they try to avoid the authorities, but their freedom is constantly at risk when they are visited by other prison escapees who have gotten wind of their whereabouts. Hilarity ensues when a host of guest stars appear on their doorstep–Tom Delay, Duke Cuningham, Jack Abramoff, and (at a later date) William Jefferson!

Of course, I am hoping for a second season in which the guest cast will include Chimpy George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Al Fredo Alberto Gonzales, Karl Rove, and a slew of others.

Dems, Interrupted

Did ya watch the Democratic “debate” on CNN? Did ya want to smack Wolf Blitzer in the mouth and tell him that it is rude to constantly interrupt people? Maybe we can call Jack Cafferty and ask him to explain to Wolfie…..
