From The Washington Post:
In his first few months after leaving office, former vice president Richard B. Cheney threw himself into public combat against the “far left” agenda of the new commander in chief. More private reflections, as his memoir takes shape in slashing longhand on legal pads, have opened a second front against Cheney’s White House partner of eight years, George W. Bush.
Cheney’s disappointment with the former president surfaced recently in one of the informal conversations he is holding to discuss the book with authors, diplomats, policy experts and past colleagues.
“In the second term, he felt Bush was moving away from him,” said a participant in the recent gathering, describing Cheney’s reply. “He said Bush was shackled by the public reaction and the criticism he took. Bush was more malleable to that. The implication was that Bush had gone soft on him, or rather Bush had hardened against Cheney’s advice. […]”
Oh look! Deadeye Dick has even scared Pickles, Jenna, and not-Jenna!
From The Dallas Morning News:
A group of Republican women supporting Kay Bailey Hutchison is demanding an apology from the Rick Perry campaign for remarks that they say disparage women. In a letter to the Perry camp, the group accuses adviser Dave Carney of likening the Republican senator’s campaign to a “whorehouse.”

Continuing with our celebration of Barbie’s 50th birthday. Yesterday, we looked at someone who wants to make a big splash in Washington, D.C., so today I thought we would look at some Barbies who really did make a splash, whether good or muddy. I thought we would do this chronologically. Therefore, we begin with the
Lady MacBeth wife of George H. W. Bush and Mrs. Iselin mother of the bad seed Chimpy George W. Bush. We all remember how gracious she was when Hurricane Katrina hit.
There is the prospect of a third member of the Bush family perhaps occupying the White House one day. Former President George H.W. Bush said on “Fox News Sunday” he would like to see his second son, Jeb Bush, become President. Jeb has served as the governor of Florida and is considering a run for the Florida U.S. Senate seat to be vacated by Republican Mel Martinez in 2010. The former President admitted right now would probably be a bad time” for another Bush in the White House, given the low public opinion rankings for the current President Bush. The elder Bush said in spite of that, he wants to encourage his son Jeb’s political aspirations to, “serve the greatest country in the world.”
Houston, we have a problem. This is how Poppy and Bar see their little darlings:

However, that’s not what the rest of us see. This is more like reality:
There was much excitement behind the scenes at the Rethuglican Convention! There was a lot of planning going on!
All of Captain Underpants’s
lobbyists friends and advisers were there, including Karl Rove, Phil Gramm (who kept his hands over his ears, lest there be any whining! 😆 ), Randy Scheunemann, Joe McLieberman, Nicolle “the media sucks” Wallace, Lindsey-poo, and Charlie Black. Captain Underpants snoozes in the background until they wake him up to tell him what he honestly and truly thinks.
