Dark Day for GOP

Ouch, yesterday was a hairy day for the GOP. Condi asked for about 85 million to get Iran to make nice and she had her ass handed to her. The GOP Katrina report came out and kicked everyone's ass who had any responsibility for that canine fornication debacle. Then for good measure the second sorry load of pictures from Abu Ghraib were playing at a computer near you. But oh Nellie, we aren't done yet. Finally, Dick Cheney gave FOX news his version of his lawyer hunting trip.

Quiet a day for the Grand Old Party on all fronts.

The best actor award goes to Dick Cheney. He said he only had one beer at lunch before later firing off some pellets at his hunting, later to be prey, buddy. Let's see, he's on a weekend get away with pals, he doesn't have to drive and he has only one beer with lunch? Come on Dick, show me one guy who has only one beer at lunch under those conditions. Did you also have only one potato chip?

Canine fornication debacle? Great line, PoP. I did catch a bit of Condi's day in the senate, and it was brutal. Something along the lines of "With all the lies you've told us in the past, you want us to believe you now and do what?" But give her credit, she didn't back down for a second. What was that definition of insanity - repeating the same thing over and over and expecting a different result each time? Oh and by the way, Cheney doesn't win the best actor award - he flubbed the line. It's not "I just had one beer a long time ago." Any cop will tell you that the correct line is "I swear officer, I only had a couple of beers." My cop buddies tell me they always say a couple.

LOL, so he can't even tell a lie correctly.

The Senators are on to Condi's week long answers where she says nothing.

Your comment reminds me of the old joke about how indians are named - punchline "Why do you ask Two Dogs Fucking?"
Oh, and the Warner Bros. spin on the Cheney hunting incident - "Duck season. Harry season. Duck season. Harry season..."

Heh..Canine fornication. We might also refer to it as a "cluster fornication"

I just saw your post at Shakespeare's Sister and saw that it had a link, and so I'm checking out the new digs!

I've read the first entry with thread. That's a shame Ms. Liz and you had a difference of opinion, especially over your Christmas posts! Put me down as another one who was highly impressed by the quality of the writing (& I loathe "cute")! I agree with the book editor who was reading them; you should collect those (& assorted) and see about getting them published.

They were quite special!!

Not a martini drinker (gin & tonic with a wedge of lime or a gin gimlet is more my speed), but I'll be checking things out.

oddjob, I'm so happy that you found me. Please drop in as often as you can. I only started this site the 9th of this month so I'm still moving in and making new friends and happily old friends are finding me.

Hey, PoP, thought I'd skootch on over and see what your place is like.

Dick gave me fits yesterday on the Hume Spume but I'll get into that more later in this w/e's Assclowns of the Week. It was hilarious, though, at how he and Ms. Armstrong can't even get on the same page.

Armstrong: They weren't drinking.
Cheney: Yes, I was.

Armstrong: Harry was alert and talking.
Cheney: He was out like a fucking light. By the way, Brit, did you hear how many birds I bagged with that last shot? No?

And so forth and so on...

I see Bush was satisfied with Dick's answer that he was having an affair and needed time to explain things to his wife first.

Let's hope the days get bleaker and bleaker for the GOP and the congress folks grow some balls or soul or whatever it takes to slam bang stop this insanity.

Good Evening, Ms. Pop --

I, too, am happy to find your new spot on the internets. "Oddjob" left your calling card over at the Dark Wraith Forums which was a welcome signpost to follow over here.

I also read all the posts & comments upon arriving. Thanks for providing your version of what led to your departure from BS. I'm human enough to wonder about things like that. I look forward to making a daily visit.

Your Christmas stories are what particularly caught my interest at a time when I was debating whether to keep BS on my "daily" list. As I wrote in the comments there, I copied your stories into email so my non-blog reading friends could enjoy them as well. I've certainly missed your wit.

Be seeing you again.
