Pull Up a Chair, Kick Back, Watch the Show

Or as Napoleon Bonaparte said, “Never interrupt your enemy when he’s making a mistake." So MIss Karen Hughes, Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy, how’s your new job going? Karen Hughes used to be a “White House counsellor”. Now she’s in charge of polishing up the US image around the world. I don’t know what’s going to be more fun, watching the White House spin their political suicide as a case of religious martyrdom, or watching Karen Hughes clean the White House stables and selling the horseshit as gold nuggets. There are a number of potential award winners out here in the real world: Karen Hughes for the Augean Stables award Nancy Seaman for the Lizzie Borden award Michael Jackson for the Junkie-in-Denial award Although Whitney Houston is a runner-up for the Junkie award. She’s gone into rehab again and says she tried to cure her addiction with prayer, but alas, it didn’t work. And I think Nancy Seaman topped Lizzie Borden by more than a few whacks. She went to Home Depot and bought a hatchet, whacked her hubbo, tried to shoplift another hatchet so she could return it as though it was the husband-whacking hatchet. And now she’s claiming self-defense. After Whitney and Nancy and Michael get through their current bad patches, maybe they can get a job in the White House.They lie, deceive, break the law and expect to get away with it. What’s not to like? They might even run for Prez on the GOP ticket. In the meantime, it’s hard to decide between watching the Republicans commit hara-kiri and watching Court TV.
