Favorable Auspices?

"Come then," Tarquin said angrily, "Deduce, if your augury
can, whether what I have in my mind right now is possible."

As President Bush took a question Thursday in
the White House Rose Garden about scandals
involving his Attorney General, he remarked,
"I've got confidence in Al Gonzales doin' the job."

Simultaneously, a sparrow flew overhead and
left a splash on the President's sleeve, which Bush
tried several times to wipe off. 

Deputy White House Press Secretary Dana Perino
promptly put the incident through the proper
spin cycle, telling ABC News, "It was his lucky
day…everyone knows that's a sign of good luck."

Gimme A Break

In case you’re wondering why I haven’t posted lately, I thought
I’d borrow a page out of the Iraqi parliament playbook.

I figure, if those folks can find the time (and nerve) to schedule
a two-month vacation
while militias and suicide bombers continue
to terrorize the country, surely a cheesy blogger like myself can
go a couple weeks without an update.

Anyway, sorry for the inconvenience. I hope we can still count
on your future support

Happy Anniversary

Four years ago today.

MATTHEWS: We're proud of our president. Americans
love having a guy as president, a guy who has a little
swagger, who's physical, who's not a complicated guy
like [former President Bill] Clinton or even like [former
Democratic presidential candidates Michael] Dukakis
or [Walter] Mondale, all those guys, [George] McGovern.
They want a guy who's president. Women like a guy
who's president. Check it out. The women like this war.
I think we like having a hero as our president. It's
simple. We're not like the Brits. We don't want an
indoor prime minister type, or the Danes or the Dutch
or the Italians, or a [Russian Federation President
Vladimir] Putin. Can you imagine Putin getting elected
here? We want a guy as president.
