Bush's acceptance speech

Did anyone else notice President Bush's comment when congradulating the democracts then telling Nancy Pelosi that he had some Republican decorators that would help her pick out curtains for her new offices!! I can't believe that he is getting away with a chauvanistic comment like that. if the new speaker of the house had been a man that comment would never have been spoken! it just goes to show he has no respect for women in congress unless the women are serving him coffee or picking up after him like Nancy will do with IraQ!!!

Chauvinism and drapes

I disagree with your assessment. "Already measuring the office for new drapes" is a cliche for "moving into the new office before the election is won." And in general "new drapes" is the cliche act that a politician takes when moving into a new office, a visible symbol that somebody new is moving in.

That said, perhaps Bush could provide a fumigator for former Rep. Foley's offices ...

The Republican Lay-off

I wrote this post before Rumsfeld got sacked. It sort of remind me of the guy who accidently sets fire to his neighbor's house and then promises to make amends by shooting his dog.

When the "Decider," decides

Mark Shields on the News Hour last night said that you don't take the punching bag out of the gym.

And our new Defense Secretary. Doesn't he bear a strong resemblance to the CIA man in "Apocalypse Now" who says "terminate with extreme prejudice."
