OLD NEWS.

"Originally published on WEDNESDAY, 10/1/2003"

 

The title of the article says it all: President Cheney. That should give those "impeach Bush" people something to think about, eh?

As a lefty, I'd like to see BushCheney flounder through the next three years, revile (Cheney's approval is at 19%) lame ducks after the Dems retake the House and Senate in 2006.

If I were a Republican, I'd wanna see Cheney resign and be replaced by someone electable like McCain who can then run in 2008.

I don't think there is any reasonable possibility that the President will be impeached, but if he were, Cheney would become President and would get to name the new vice-president.

In effect, this would allow the GOP to name the heir and successor to the throne. If they really wanted to go for the jugular after an impeachment, Cheney would name his successor, then resign and turn over the reins of power without an election.

In other words, an impeachment would really backfire on the Dems, which is why their best strategy is to cool their heels and just walk around acting statesmanlike, letting the press do their dirty work.

I agree with your assessment. If Cheney resigned now "for health reasons", and was replaced by Colin Powell or John McCain, either of whom would be confirmed with no problem, the GOP could still pull itself out of its tailspin and shut out the Dems for another decade or two. Both of those guys are widely respected.

I don't think they will do that because their hard right would consider either of those men to be a compromise of their vision. I think they will try to gut it out. If they need a replacement for Cheney, they will go with their ideological kin. At least that's how I see it.

In my opinion (I'm the guy who poste dthe first comment) I think Scoop's got it 100% right. But maybe I am clueless too.

  • Oh, no, and just when she was doing such a great job with Cruise's image
  • Cruise finally made the move when he realized he had David Spade on speed dial.
  • And not only that, Spade wasn't returning his calls.

This is NOT a satire site: "First 5-star hotel opens in Kabul" I have moved Kabul substantially higher on my travel priorities. It's now just above Somalia ("come for the pirates, stay for the warlords"), just below Nagorno-Karabakh.

"A STEAMY novel by I Lewis 'Scooter' Libby has become a hot item now that Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff is under indictment."
  • "Now out of print, the novel tells the story of an innkeeper apprentice in a bizarre coming-of-age story set in Japan in 1903. It is littered with edgy sexual material and strong language."
  • "lavish dollops of voyeurism, bestiality, pedophilia and corpse robbery"
  • ... we gotta get this guy a "not guilty" just so he can get started on the screenplay!
  • Cheney's wife has also written a semi-racy novel about lesbian cowgirls, more or less. What a great Cheney-themed double-bill. It could bring back drive-ins.

"Sharon Osbourne has launched a scathing, obscene attack on Madonna - accusing the pop queen of looking like 'an old hooker'."
  • That's not fair at all! Anyone can see that Madonna looks like a middle-aged hooker. There's a big difference.
  • Sharon herself looks like an old hooker
  • Plus, Madonna looks like a middle-aged hooker who stays in really good shape. When you get around to it, that's not even a negative thing, really.
