. . . Dead!

Let's make it happen, folks.

Hey, how would you match up the Bush Administration to the "Wormer Administration?"

i.e., let's say you had Wormer, Marmalard and Niedermayer. Who would Bush, Cheney and Rove match up to among them?

Feel free to throw other nasty characters from Animal House and the Bush Administration/Congressional (and ex-Congressional like Tom Delay) Republicans into the mix.

After you get your glib response out of the way, please give me your thought-out answer.

A glib response here would be redundant, no?

(Maybe that was it. Ok, on to the exercise.)

Wormer: Cheney. This one seems a no-brainer to me. Mean, smart, tough, plays dirty, let's other actually "do" the dirty work, etc.

Marmalard: I keep thinking of Rumsfeld here, even though he's no longer in the adminsitration. Clean cut, smarmy, superficially confident. Plus the image of Rummy getting boinked by the boys in the clink is just to delicious to resist.

Niedermayer: I keep thinking here of Ashcroft, another former cabinet member. But Rove fits the bill too. In that he's weasly & outrageous. But Rove stays in the background, which breaks down the analogy.

Bush is Chip, the Kevin Bacon character. Think of the way he stood in the face of the rioting paraders, screaming "Remain calm. All is well!"

Maybe Condi is Mrs. Wormer. I dunno.

"Bush is Chip."


I think it's a pretty good guess to say that Animal House's nasty characters were loosely based on the Nixon Administration.

I mean, it's really easy to see the Wormer-Nixon and Niedermayer-Haldeman (or is Liddy better?) connections. Marmalard was probably more of just a typical "College Repbulican."

But back to today:

Bush-Chip: Excellent.
Wormer-Cheney: Excellent

The others are tougher. I think we need an Animal House remake in about five years to better capture the current cast of characters.

The original Animal House is a work of art that stands on its own, independant of of what anyone does with the name or idea.

Didn't you mean to sign this comment as "Lao Tsu."

I know this is crossing the good Animal House guys with the bad, but it's a shame that BushCo thinks starting a war is no worse then yelling, "Food Fight!"

Jeez. Remakes, Bluto on the same team as Niedermeyer. What blasphemy.

I think it's back to Animal House 101 for you guys.

(And Applesaucer & George, of all people! I'd never have thought it.)

Hey, I admitted I was messing things up.

And, not to sound too smug, but when fellow Santa Barbaran Tim Matheson sees me at an (of course) upscale supermarket, he says hi. Luckily I've never seen him by the cucumbers.

Too late.

but when fellow Santa Barbaran Tim Matheson sees me at an (of course) upscale supermarket, he says hi.

I'd like to say I'm not impressed, but I am.

Damn it.

Luckily I've never seen him by the cucumbers.

Because you'd have to tell him yours was bigger?

Toast -

Who's in the bleachers? Just Rove, or the whole gang? Either way I'm for it, just want to know how excited to get.
