CLINTON VS BUSH: DUMB AND DUMBER DYNASTY TALK Elders Continue Down Path of Dementia with Plans to Further Screw Nation. The Heretik Joe Ivory Mattingly knows he is damned when he reads competing story plants on the same day about various Bush dynasty fantasies. Apparently all the Republicans think it takes to get elected is to be named Bush. Put your name on the ballot, let people pretend to vote, then take the throne so rightfully Bush. Or so it seems. Maybe somebody along with the Heretik is damned. All of us are damned. Someone save me from the tyranny of the dumb and dumber.
Someone should call Larry King and tell him it is time he pulled his head out of Dick Cheney’s huge ass. I cannot wait to look further at the transcript of this CNN interview he did with Dark Dick, Vader of Vengeance and Master of Premature Victory Ejaculations. Larry, let me know if you know when someone is lying ever.
Cheney is so confident in the Bush mojo he thinks Laura Bush could win in 2008. Laura I’m Telling Cock Jokes Bush would defeat Hillary Health Care Disaster Bill Clinton in 2008. Lynne How Dare You Called My Outed Lesbian Daughter a Lesbian Cheney thinks Laura Bush is a great idea too. Maybe will see a losing Laura Lynney ticket for a bad movie remake in 2008.
REUTERSFirst lady Laura Bush would defeat U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton if the two were to face each other in the 2008 presidential contest, Vice President Dick Cheney said on Monday.
Cheney made the prediction after his wife, Lynne Cheney, suggested the matchup in an interview on CNN's "Larry King Live."
Mrs. Cheney noted the rampant speculation that the former first lady, now a senator from New York, would make a bid in the next presidential go-around. President Bush cannot seek a third term in office. His father, former President Bush, was defeated after one term by former President Bill Clinton.
"You know, people are thinking of Mrs. Clinton running for president. I think Mrs. Bush ought to run for president," Mrs. Cheney said. "If we want to have a Bush dynasty, let's get Laura Bush."
The vice president, who again ruled out making his own run for president when Bush's term ends, agreed.
"It's a great idea," Dick Cheney said. "And I think I know who would win too."
UPDATE ON LARRY KING: Apparently King Was Able to Pull His Head Out of Cheney’s Chunky Butt. Great news for journalism, Larry. But not sure how your voice seems so strong when you promptly climbed up a dark ladder into the attic of Poppy Bush’s ass. After the Laura rules the country and people find out she was good at handling cock, at least in terms of jokes, we have another Bush waiting to burn with the passion of politics. Jeb. John Ellis Bush may be his real name and he would be real scary running for President. But his name is Bush so he qualifies. That obnoxious Billy Bush, the one you cannot avoid at awards shows may run as well. I want to be adopted by the Bush family and run for president. Joe Ivory Bush. JIB. JIB would follow JEB who would follow Laura. Laura and Lynney in 2008 would defeat Clinton, Hillary and whoever. Because Laura, with her vast policy decisions on White House chefs, would really cook herself.
CNN In an interview on CNN's "Larry King Live," former President Bush said he would want Jeb to run for president "someday," but now was not the time.
"The timing's wrong. The main thing is, he doesn't want to do it. Nobody believes that," Bush said.
But he and wife Barbara both said they believed Jeb, 52, did not want to run in the next presidential race.
Bush said he did not have a favorite candidate for the Republican nomination to succeed his son, President Bush.
Barbara Bush said she believed Senator and former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton would be the Democratic nominee in the 2008 presidential race. "I'm not going to vote for her, but I'm betting on her," she said.
Somebody Should Tell Bill Frist He Should Keep Drinking What Looks Like Embalming Fluid. Whoever told him Frist he should quit the Senate and had a chance of being President is probably drinking too.
LOVE FROM ME TO PEGGY NOONAN TO ME I Love Peggy Noonan, But I Didn’t Know It. She loves me but she doesn’t know how to show it. Damn the media for making us strange bedfellows in beds miles apart. Ms. Morning in Americawho made Reagan shine magical for the mindless in America sees things the same way I do. Or I see things the same way she does. Or we are looking in the same mirror looking at ourselves looking at each other. Which means we are just like our great senators who are looking at each other, looking at themselves and saying: aren’t we great?
We saved the Senate. We saved the Constitution. We saved America. Save me from the Saviors. And save Peggy too. And save RJ Eskow as well. Save a bit of salvation for Talk Left’s Jeralyn Merritt. Save us from the Saviors who have not saved us from Honorable Judge Priscilla Owen who will take us gloriously back to a legal landscape circa Dred Scott.
You wonder why Humpback Bush strangely mentioned Dred Scott during the Presidential Debates last year? Priscilla Owen loves property law like Dred Scott. Janice Rogers Brown does too. Pre-save me from a Senate that will not save us from Janice Rogers Brown.
THE MEDIA ISN’T ALONE IN BEING DAMNED. We Are All Damned If We Don’t Ask Questions, If We Don’t Demand Better of Our Politicians, And If We Don’t Demand Better of Ourselves. From Bill Moyers: Mermin also quotes public television’s Jim Lehrer, whom I greatly respect, acknowledging that unless an official says something is so, it isn’t news. Why were journalists not discussing the occupation of Iraq? “Because,” says Jim Lehrer, “the word ‘occupation’ was never mentioned in the run up to the war. Washington talked about the war as a war of liberation, not a war of occupation. So as a consequence, those of us in journalism,” says Lehrer, “never even looked at the issue of occupation.” Everyone needs to do better. Not just journalists. But it is easy to lay out the blame. I plead guilty myself. We shouldn’t blame Washington, we should blame Republicans, says Matt Yglesias. Ah, "Washington," so full of those damned politicians, never tackling the real issues. Except "Washington" isn't determined to obsess about obscure cultural topics or engage in quixotic efforts to turn back the cultural revolution. "Washington" isn't failing to get serious about health-care policy. "Washington" isn't too distracted by partisan manipulations to notice what the big issues are. The Republican Party is doing all of those things.
When one party controls the White House, the Senate, the House of Representatives, the Supreme Court, most of the circuit courts, etc., the other party doesn't have much of a choice but to talk about what the majority party wants to talk about.
Earlier in the day, I may have been too quick to jump on the last line above to criticize a seeming giving in to someone framing the terms under discussion and the consequences.David Sirota had some things to say about this as well. Maybe I as so quick to jump because I saw the parallels in what Yglesias is saying here about “Washington,” and Republicans, and some of what Bill Moyers said the other night in his own defense against right wing attacks of bias. Maybe I have just had it with the White House framing Newsweek as the villain for what wreckage it has wreaked in the Middle East. Maybe, but for sure I know I know one thing.
So long as we let someone else define what we can say, we also let them define us for what we might be: cowards. I am not going to sit back and take this anymore. I hope that you won’t either. Now what can we do about it?

AND FINALLY THE HERETIK HAS FOUND THE ANSWER TO THE DREADED QUESTION: the tree that falls in the forest DOES make a sound if no one hears it, but the tree is very lonely . ..
"President Bush's New Public Face: Confident, Comfortable and 'Impishly Fun'".
From Lizzie's Diary:
Note to self: Make sure to check kneepads carefully after Judy's been using them.
Funny how Izvestia on the Hudson can't manage to run a story about Bush's Partei rallies where he only appears before supporters, and where the supposedly spontaneous "conversations" are rehearsed, multiple times, the night before.
The Heretik does not want to think of what Impish Fun Elizabeth Bumiller has when she has Bush and her other fave Rumsfeld in some back room together? Oy, what a suck up. And The Heretik knows about suckups. He is the master of the overt suckup. Or not. The Heretik acknowleges he often overestimates himself.
DAMN THE NY TIMES FOR GETTING IT WRITE UM RIGHT FOR ONCE And on the First Time Very Admirable: The Heretik Is Going to Puke On This
Why Isn't "Hypocrisy" Spelled Like "Democracy?"
No, I'm not going to say "I told you so!" But I did:
Link: List of Schiavo Donors Will Be Sold by Direct-Marketing Firm.
WASHINGTON, March 28 - The parents of Terri Schiavo have authorized a conservative direct-mailing firm to sell a list of their financial supporters, making it likely that thousands of strangers moved by her plight will receive a steady stream of solicitations from anti-abortion and conservative groups.
The Heretik does not want to think about spelling. We live in a nation of idiots that doesn't have time to read, particularly when the righting is on the wall. The Heretik often overestimates himself, particularly in midrant. Righting on the wall? Had the right on my mind. The Right is on my ass! Rant, rant, pause, breathe. Ah, that's better! Make righting on the wall writing on the wall. Make it so. We live in a world of cut and paste journalism. The Dork Blogocrat Heretik is as guilty as the meteor, I mean media. Jeez, this whole Schiavo thing got me going. The Heretik pleads guilty to cutting and pasting a long comment into at least three different blogs. Victims include Hilzoy at Obsidian Wings, my bitch queen Professor B at Bitch Ph.d. I may have even spooged that nice girl Jeanne d'Arc at Body and Soul. My lesson? When you rant, stop to breathe in the middle. At least once.
Truth is Schiavo is not about Schiavo at all. So when she dies, the furor found in so called fundamentalists who have no respect for fundamental decency will move onto the next "cause" that serves their agenda.
The mask may change. The face of fear and control does not. So I'm going to continue to write about this uber subject mostly in the new series Lost Soul. Fatigue in the face of the onslaught of fear is natural and expected. Mostly it is expected by the fearmongers who will take advantage while we sleep. May we not wake to too many more nightmares. May we hold onto our dreams so our children will know light.
Yup, that was quite a rant. Even got a plug in for that new series I righteously call Lost Soul. Yeah, Heretikal One, could you be a little more self important with that stuff? Get back to the fun stuff! Where is the cat blogging? Originally Lost Soul was supposed to look at all this Schiavo stuff. I was going to have a bit about my mom's death to tie into it, but I haven't had the courage yet to post that thing. Because that would get into some deep Krap. And The Heretik, just like everyone else, the media included, hates to step into deep Krap, not just because we have to take the time to scrape the stuff off our shoes. Oy. Sometimes you have to scrape the deep Krap off your soul. And that leaves scrape marks. And who likes the smell of deep Krap anyway? Each of us looks away from The Real Krap some time. And what are we left with when we wake up? Yesterday's Krap and a fresh load piled on top for today. If you don't clean the litter box every day, the whole house soon smells like Krap.
