Don’t know if he’s sleepy, but his head is hollow!

From The Washington Post:

On Wednesday, Laura Bush told reporters she and the president “might be” buying a place in Dallas. Yesterday, the White House announced that they’ve purchased a home in the city’s upscale Preston Hollow neighborhood.

No other official details, but the Dallas Morning News helpfully identified the likely homestead. Robert McCleskey, the Bushes’ longtime friend and Midland accountant, bought a house at 10141 Daria Pl. on Oct. 3, according to local property records. The 8,501-square-foot house, built in 1959 at the end of a cul-de-sac, has four bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths.

The one-story house is assessed at $2,078,660 but apparently is worth a lot more. According to the deed, McCleskey, listed as a trustee, took out a $3.07 million loan to be paid back in four years, our colleague Dan Eggen reports. McCleskey declined to say for whom he bought the property; the former owner also is keeping mum. Last week, a smaller house next door went under contract for $1.6 million to an unknown buyer — perfect crash pad for the Secret Service detail.

The main property backs up on two enormous estates owned by prominent Republicans. One, a 14-acre spread, belongs to Gene Phillips, a real estate developer and GOP fundraiser, and his wife, Roxanne; the other is owned by Tom and Cindy Hicks, who bought the Texas Rangers from Bush and his partners and have contributed more than $600,000 to the president and other Republican candidates since 2000.

And by the way, kids, I know you expected me to do a poster like this….

Well, ha! I sure fooled you!

    there’s not need to sneak in termites and cockroaches. they will be there on january 21st, right after the moving vans drop off all the stuff they stole from the white house. ๐Ÿ˜€

    One of the things that amazes me about you, nonnie, is how quickly you come up with your ideas and create your mini-masterpieces! I mean, the WaPo article was only published today and you’ve made not one, but two great posters…

    I suppose MM Chimpy can give up all pretense now of ever being “ranchers,” although I did read that they might keep the Crawford place as a “weekend getaway.” Maybe they should turn it into an elite dude ranch, which would be closer to it being a “ranch” than it ever was with Dubya living there! Of course, he could still have fun with his brush-hog there in the off-season. (Do you suppose they planted all that brush there so Bush could have plenty of photo-ops when needed?)

  4. nightowl,
    some of this stuff just writes itself. as soon as i saw preston hollow, i thought of sleepy hollow, and, of course, dallas is dallas.

    i would be willing to bet that the sell the “ranch” in crawford within a couple of years, if that long. it was just a prop. they never really lived there, and pickles wants to be in the big city. i’d be very surprised if they spent another day there.

    I wonder what Deadeye Dick’s plans are? Torturing small animals, kicking the unemployed, trying to figure out more ways to funnel needed funds to those wealthy folks who’ve taken some hits in the market? I would personally vote for him to take a little vacation to The Hague. The Netherlands is really lovely.

  6. didn’t deadeye dick just buy a new house, too? i think i remember reading that he and lynne were shopping for a house. yep, i just googled, and he is building a crypt….i mean a house across the street from cia headquarters in mclean, va. that sounds a little disconcerting, doesn’t it? do the google, and you can see the location and the house under construction.

    It’s a marvel that you got the Jack-O-Lantern to look like Cheney.

    Ooooh, I’m sure a lot of those folks in the CIA feel spooked (if you’ll pardon the pun) at him being there after his infamous trips there several years ago. Like them, I’d feel much better if he were somewhere remote in Wyoming, Alaska or a graybar hotel.

  9. wcp,
    finally!!! someone finally recognized the jack o’lantern as deadeye dick! i was wondering if anyone would ever remark on it. all credit goes to the new yorker magazine. it was on one of their covers. all i did was to change the color of the stem to green.

  10. jeb,
    i think it is very spooky! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ it makes me nervous. does deadeye dick have someone in the cia who is beholden to him and who might do his bidding? i don’t trust that bastard. he’s not the type to let go of power once he has it.

  11. W00t!!! Love love LOVE the Dallas graphic Nonnie. Your talent is incredible chica! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. So that’s what the son-in-law looks like! I’d never seen him before.

  14. thanks, dusty!
    and thank you for the link over at the sirens chronicle. yet another stop i must make each day!

  15. neon vincent,
    yep, that’s what he looks like. i guess the bush girls don’t go for the bad-boy type. i got bored just looking at him.

  16. Another fuยขking masterpiece.
    However, the real “Dallas” had at least a few characters you didn’t want to bitchslap, like Barbara Bel Geddes’s.
    Old Babs, on the other hand, is the breeding bitch who got all this mess started.
    She’s quite possibly my LEAST favorite Bush.

  17. karen,
    i never watched dallas. when it was on, i was working nights. i was one of the few who didn’t care who shot jr.

    back when george I was in office, people would say that old babs was the kindly grandmotherly type. i said back then that she is more like lady macbeth. she is the evil driving force in that family. if she had been a decent person, the entire bush family history would have been completely different. i bet even millie hated her guts.
