HOW MUCH DECIDING COULD A DECIDER DECIDE IF A DECIDER COULD ACTUALLY MAKE A DECISION?

Today's Actual Yahoo! News Headline Of The Day:
Bush Decides Direction Of Iraq Policy
Frankly, I don't even have the energy (or more importantly, the desire) to wade through today's latest stinking pile from the Administration Bullshit Storm. Read the piece; it's got plenty of the usual.

What I'm wondering is, in a world where:
not only Keith Olbermann, but also former NYC local news-hack, Jack Cafferty tees off on Bush on the nightly news on CNN (H/T to Furious); and

Alan Colmes, the wimpy, ready-made strawman for Sean Hannity's bloviating rants takes on Tommy "The Hammer" Delay . . . and turns him into a stumbling idiot (H/T to Otto Man at LLPON); and

nobody but the most committed Bushophiles has anything good to say about the guy ("H/T" to Malkin, Rush, VDH, etc);
I need to ask, do you think this headline can be filed cleanly under, "Damn, they're straight-out fucking with him"?

I think yes. And I love it. Can impeachment be more than just a pipe dream?

The AP news headline creator had to of been chuckling when he/she wrote this one.

That's what I'm thinking. While somewhat subtle, it's still a little too obvious for an editor to have missed, or to be competely unintentional.

Either way, I love it. I like NY Post headlines, and this one's a tamer version of that sort of thing.

Deciding on a policy is a good idea. It was a good idea in 2003, and its still a good idea. Its good to see the Decider, deciding to decide on making a decision about the decisions he's been ask to decide between.

Shittiest Peesident Ever.

I know its crude, but it fits. He's got the reverse Midas Touch.

"The load of the war is not heavy. Its a joyful, not a painful experience, because I know that millions of people are praying for me." - George Bush

Yeah, I saw that quotation. Not sure what the hell he's talking about, but that's par for the course at this point.

He'd have needed to segue into "He ain't heavy, he's my brother" to have surprised me.

Come to think of it, not sure that would've done the trick either.

That praying thing is pretty freaky. I wonder if he knows they're praying at him, not with him?

I think he probably does know. If there's anyone on earth who could be called an Agressive Prayer, it's Georgie.

So, since he only "prays at," never "with," and since he's so narcissistic he's unaware that anyone could ever feel differently about anything than he does . . .

Yet, to pose a counter-argument: He's never right about anything, gets nothing.

Hmmmm. A dimemma.

The only thing better than the AP headline is yours. But I don't think at this point Bush would even make a good woodchuck.

Aww shucks. Looks like George just gave me my birthday present.

David Cross had a blistering routine about how our soldiers -- even the ones in combat themselves -- were asked to pray for Bush like he was the fucking emperor.

He had a darkly comic moment where a soldier gets hit and squeezes out one final prayer: "Dear God, please give the president the strength ... to ... finish his lobster salad."

That's great. Cross gets pretty self-indulgent at times (not that I, of all people, should be complaining about that), but when he's on, he's really good.

I haven't seen much of him since Mr. Show. What's he up to these days?

Damn. I missed your birthday! Happy, happy friend!
here's a belated birthday gift for you.....
Where but in texas?

"Proving once again that the Second Amendment is all about the visually impaired, a Texas state representative named Edmund Kuempel has introduced a bill that would allow blind people to hunt.

Yes, with a gun. Seriously.

“This opens up the fun of hunting to additional people, and I think that’s great,” Kuempel said.
Oh yeah. It’s definitely great. Blind people with guns: what could possibl-eye go wrong? It’s an excellent measure to control our rampant Texan overpopulation problem.

When reached for comment, Florida and Ohio were all like, “Damn, why didn’t we think of that?”

I know, i know...lots of Dick Cheney jokes are in order!

I caught that. Nothing slips past me, Shea.

That story's pretty . . . odd. That's not an Onion piece?

Oh, and thanks for the B-day greetings.

By that question, I'm guessing you weren't watching Arrested Development the past three seasons. Cross was absofuckinglutely brilliant on that thing.

Seriously, if you missed the show, just do yourself a favor and buy the DVDs. It's the only show I've seen where it gets better and better with repeated viewings.

I'm not even sure what show that is.

{Ducks lightning bolt}

Who else beside Cross was in it?

Jason Bateman starred. Along with Potia De Rossi and Jeffrey Tambor. The show was funny as hell. Ron Howard produced and did voice overs.
Very funny stuff.

It was good, and it was on Fox, which explains why it was cancelled. Normal Fox viewers did not "get it".

Oh, that show. Yeah, I've heard good things about it. I didn't know it was cancelled though.

Bateman's hilarious. Every time I think of him as the announcer in Dodgeball I laugh.

And Portia DiRossi? Fine looking woman. At least back in the mid-90s. How's she fairing these days?

Hotter than ever. The fact that I now know she's a lesbian may be coloring that.

Seriously, Mike, you should check out the show. Easily the funniest sitcom since ... well, ever.
