Wednesday ‘BushWhack’ing

  • “President” Bush is scolding the children opponents of the immigration reform legislation and said they “haven’t read the bill” and are offering “empty political rhetoric.” (Hello kettle, this is the pot; you’re black). And rather than have his conservative bretheren come to his aid, they instead seethed at his remarks. (George, you’re losing the support of other conservatives – shouldn’t that be a clue that you’re ineffective?)
  • Just when you think Tom DeLay (R-TX) couldn’t sound any more foolish, he opens his mouth and removes all doubt. In an article in the latest edition of the New Yorker, DeLay says that in the coming years, when he isn’t fighting the indictment in Texas he will build a conservative grass-roots equivalent of Said DeLay;
    “God has spoken to me,” he said. “I listen to God, and what I’ve heard is that I’m supposed to devote myself to rebuilding the conservative base of the Republican Party, and I think we shouldn’t be underestimated.”
    (Well good for you. Hey Tom, next time God talks to you, ask him if he believes that you’re innocent… I doubt that he’s fooled…)
  • “President” Bush is set to name the new head of the World Bank within the next day or two, and it’s someone qualified and not a Bushcrony… I’m kidding, it’s former Bush cabinet member and eternal-crony Robert Zoellick. (What? You were expecting him to name someone that HASN’T been kissing his ass for a millennium?)
  • There’s more intraparty strife happening in the republican party. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA), now thought to be mulling over a presidential run, has taken a shot at Bush strategist Karl “President” Rove.
    “Let me be clear: twenty-eight-per-cent approval of the President, losing every closely contested Senate seat except one…that’s a collapse.”
    Gingrich went on to blame “not only Iraq and Hurricane Katrina but also Karl Rove’s ‘maniacally dumb’ strategy in 2004, which left Bush with no political capital.” (Gotta love it when members of th same party snipe at each other. Though I’m sure Rove will keep his mouth shut and won’t say anything at all… uh-huh… and Lindsay Lohan’s latest trip to rehab will work…)
  • And have we mentioned? That it was 2 years ago today that Vice President Dick “President” Cheney made his infamous statement that the insurgency in Iraq was in it’s “last throes.” ThinkProgress has a nice post up (complete with video satisfaction) about the anniversary, go check it out.
