REMAINS of the DAYS: The one hastily thrown together.
I'm going to be away from the blog for about a week, headed to the Windy City to get a kiss from Ozzie. While I'm there, I may post a 'thank you' note on special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald's door, that is if he's not 'in the tank'. As I've said all along, I think he's got more up his sleeve, and I'm not the only one. Could it be Karl's week? Or could it be Big Dick's time? No one really knows, but the veep should certainly be in play, at least according to the Starr standards. He's the one who was most obsessed with getting his war on. He's the one who pushed the 'reconsituted nukes' and the al Qaeda link more than anyone. He's the one who supports torture and secret prisons. This is the Cheney adminstration, not the Bush administration. He's the one calling the shots. So let's get Dick. In the meantime, here's some less heavy Remains, thrown together at the last minute, to keep y'all busy while I'm away. Enjoy.
- Don't worry about that bird flu thing, the big guy has it under control.
- G's up, Hoes down: Barney's in the hizouse.
- A few Halloween leftovers: Homestar Runner gets his trick-or-treat on. Also, Bobby Brown and Mike Tyson represent Halloween better than anyone.
- How about that, Carmen Electra and I have something in common. (and no, I was never married to Dennis Rodman)
- Pulp Fiction in 30 seconds as re-enacted by bunnies. (check out all the re-enactments here)
- Don't worry, He's with you always.
- Like cats? Then why don't you go bowling with them? Or maybe play a little Tetris. Whatever you do, don't watch this.
- Mr. Sun does it again, this time he casts the inevitable film version of Plamegate for us.
- From McSweeney's, "Ways in Which the Disinterred Corpse of Silent-Film Actor Lon Chaney Would Be a Better Vice President Than Dick Cheney."
- And back to the heavy: About that leak, don't forget WHAT they were trying to cover up.
- John Dean says Dick Cheney should not be sleeping well.
- They're coming out of the woodwork: If you missed the revelations brought forth in recent weeks, first by Colin Powell's chief of staff Lawrence Wilkerson (The White House Cabal), and second by Bush Sr.'s NSA Brett Scowcroft (Breaking Ranks), about how the Cheney administration has been conducting business, I encourage you to read them now.
- And finally, a few older articles to revisit: Dick Cheney's Song for America and The Lie Factory.
Two days before Fiztball season began, we posted our pre-emptive, albeit derivative poem, (10-26-05), which we think will hold up over time:
On First Looking Into Fitzgerald's Indictment
A Pre-Emptive Poem
From A Keats Ghost To Gothamimage:
Much have I witnessed the Scandal of Bush
And many awful lies and outrages seen;
Round many breaches have I been
Which bards in fealty to Republic hold.
Oft of one great Injury had I been told
That worried the Founders in repose;
Yet did I never see it so clear
Till I heard Fitzgerald speak out loud and bold:
Then I felt like some Justice on High
When a pure Truth comes into his view:
Or like Honest Abe when with wise eyes
He saved the Union - and all his men
Look'd at each other with great relief -
Silent, upon a stillness at Appomattox.
