Counting the seconds.

I've got a new little countdown thingy on my sidebar showing the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds remaining in Bush's prez time (which I found through People's Republic of Seabrook). Then I thought, well what if he's impeached? New code would have to written for it. Sounds like a great thing, and I'm all for it, but then who have we got? President Cheney? And if Cheney dies or is impeached, then who? Sheeesh!

How in the hell did this happen?

Ay, there's the rub. We get rid of Bush, and the Dark Prince of Evil moves into the Oval Office. And he doesn't even have to go through the ignominy of an election, and the requisite kissing of babies that's required. He might just feel the urge to eat those babies (burp). That wouldn't play too well in Peoria, me thinks.

There's really no ideal scenario in this end game. The evil empire must be defeated once and for all...in 2008. In the meantime, we count the body bags returning from Iraq and the scandals eminating from Washington.

Cheney is Bush's "insurance policy" and would be his "revenge".

Sounds like a bad movie plot.

Exactly. I suspect there are some people who would be willing and able to take matters into their own hands and eliminate Bush. But the alternative very well may be worse. A lot worse.

Cheney is, indeed, Bush's protection. Almost as good as a bullet proof body condom! :-)
