Daddy Dearest-- or "41 vs. 43"

(or maybe this should be titled (tribute to W. Gains--Spy vs. Spy)

I think I'm in love (again)...I just caught this picture of Maureen Dowd (a columnist for the NY Times).

Besides having this inborn "thing" for redheads (my mom was one, my wife is CURRENTLY one {finally!}), I love her style of writing.

In today's edition, her headline is "A Come-to-Daddy Moment" in which she discusses how "Bush 41" has finally come to (my words) SPANK "Bush 43" for being a (my words again) a JACKASS!

Some (I think) Great quotes from the column: Note that anything with a {} around it are MY comments, NOT Maureen's!.

Poppy Bush and James Baker gave Sonny the presidency to play with and he broke it. So now they’re taking it back.

In a scene that might be called “Murder on the Oval Express,” Rummy turned up dead with so many knives in him that it’s impossible to say who actually finished off the man billed as Washington’s most skilled infighter. {snip}

The president and Karl Rove, underestimating the public’s hunger for change or overestimating the loyalty of a fed-up base, did not ice Rummy in time to save the Senate from teetering Democratic. {snip}

Mr. {Robert} Gates, already on Mr. Baker’s “How Do We Get Sonny Out of Deep Doo Doo in Iraq?” study group, {snip}

“They had to bring in someone from the old gang,” said someone from the old gang. “That has to make Junior uneasy. {snip}

W. had no choice but to make an Oedipal U-turn. He couldn’t let Nancy Pelosi subpoena the cranky Rummy for hearings on Iraq. “He’s not exactly Mr. Charming or Mr. Truthful,

and he’d be on TV saying something stupid,” said a Bush 41 official. “Bob can just go up to the Hill and say: ‘I don’t know. I wasn’t there when that happened.’ ”

{mark sez: UNLESS the CONGRESS suponeas Mr. Rumsfeld HIMSELF of course!}

While Vice went off to a corner to lick his wounds, W. was forced to do his best imitation of his dad yesterday, talking about “bipartisan outreach,” “people have spoken,” blah-blah-blah — after he’d been out on the trail saying that electing Democrats would mean that “the terrorists win and America loses.”

“I share a large part of the responsibility” for the “thumpin’ ” of Republicans, he told reporters.

Actually, he gets full responsibility. {Mark sez: Dah-Dum--Drum trap here}

He {Bush-idiot43} was asked if his surprise at the election results showed he was out of touch with Americans.

“I thought when it was all said and done,” he replied, “the American people would understand the importance of taxes and the importance of security.”

So it was just that the American people were too dumb to understand? {Another drum roll here}

W. also managed to bash Vietnam vets {snip} Is that why W. stayed out of Vietnam? Because he understood it? {snip}

An ashen Rummy was also condescending during his uncomfortable tableau with W. and Bob Gates in the Oval Office, implying that he was dumped because Americans just didn’t “comprehend” what was going on in Iraq.

Actually, Rummy, we get it. You don’t get it.

WoW Maureen. I'm totally flabergasted. I have almost nothing else to say, except...

I love you!
