Hmmmm.

Then Bush chokes on a pretzel and Condi becomes President.

Take THAT Gina Davis!

I'm sure it's due to his heart and health and not this Plame thing. I'm betting he'll get a Medal of Freedom on the way out of town.

This will have the Rove haters running in circles chasing their tails.
 
2005-10-18 03:14:41 PM  
Unconfirmed reports reveal Rice was measuring for drapes in Cheney's office...
 
2005-10-18 03:15:35 PM  
Would that be a biatch for all the anti-bush folk......Question is, will there be Bush fatigue? Who knows.

/I'm tired.
//not of Bush
///I need a beer

The rumor spread so fast that some Republicans by late morning were already drawing up reasons why Rice couldn't get the job or run for president in 2008.

"Isn't she pro-choice?" asked a key Senate Republican aide.


Why does that crack me up so much?

If I remember correctly, Cheney's approval ratings are somewhere in the teens. That would make almost everyone a "Cheney-hater".
 
2005-10-18 03:17:22 PM  
Is it just me or does there seem to be an inordinate amount of speculation around the Beltway these days? We'll see how much of it materializes.
 
2005-10-18 03:17:34 PM  

Oh No! the flames are to big!!! God Save us all...
 
2005-10-18 03:17:56 PM  
Bah! I say we should replace Cheney with Gerald Ford.

The Executive branch undergoes a surgery exchanging a Dick for a coont?
 
2005-10-18 03:18:11 PM  
Would someone please turn down the volume from the speculation engineers in the media. Stop asking the question "what if?" and start reporting what happened.

tea: Why does that crack me up so much?


Because it sounds like some snooty biatch saying, "She's wearing pantyhose with open toed shoes"
 
2005-10-18 03:19:34 PM  
But how will this effect the Condi Hair Alert System?
 
2005-10-18 03:19:40 PM  
The interesting thing is though, is that U.S. News and World Reports is unabashedly Conservative and Pro Bush.
 
2005-10-18 03:19:59 PM  
Condi Rice can't handle SecOState...she's gonna fall down as VP.
 
2005-10-18 03:20:12 PM  
Oh, how I would love the irony if this were true. First woman Vice President AND first attractive and successful African-American Vice President! And not a Democrat.
 
2005-10-18 03:20:15 PM  
I can think of worse things: VP Rick Santorum for one...
 
2005-10-18 03:20:23 PM  
Silly people.

Oh sure, he'll "resign". Then the president will appoint a rather masculine looking older woman named Chick Deney to be Vice President.
 
2005-10-18 03:20:24 PM  
For once, I can actually say I submitted this with a better headline :-P. Seriously, though, this is fun to watch. Indictments tomorrow, more than likely, right?

Hannah's turned on the VP's office for the Grand Jury - cool.

Rove has cancelled fundraiser appearances - cool.

DeLay is about to do the virtual perp walk - cool.

Frist will probably be charged with insider trading sometime in the next few weeks. - cool.

Its like I'm a kid on Christmas, and its only Mid-October. Remember, righties, you reap what you sew.

She really needs to stop using the same dentist as David Letterman....

I call bullshiat. Let the friggen investigation end...then wildly speculate.

I heard Gerald Ford was eaten by wolves. Senselessly.

lunchinlewis: This will have the Rove haters running in circles chasing their tails.

And just why did Rove choose to testify four times to the grand jury, and the last time without any promises of immunity?

For someone you're implying didn't have anything to do with it, he seems awfully scared and wanting to get something off his chest.
 
2005-10-18 03:22:15 PM  
I raise your indictment with a pardon.

"Stop asking the question "what if?" and start reporting what happened."

This is what 'rumored' means:

"Should Cheyney resign? What would the reaction be like?"
"I don't know, let's 'rumor' it and see."
*rumor is leaked*

Now, what they do next depends on the reaction to the so called "rumor"

Good: Go ahead, resign.
Bad: Re-think and/or spin.

See if you 'rumor' something and the reaction is way bad, that's ok because you can then say it was merely a rumor.

I will give the Bush Admin one thing; they're the best liars and misleading asshats ever in office.
 
2005-10-18 03:23:52 PM  
pfft....Cheney would leave only to oversee construction of the Death Star II


everyone knows that!!
 
2005-10-18 03:23:56 PM  
non story?
Yes indeed. After the headline and 2 or 3 paragraphs of utter speculation, US News demolishes its own non-story with quotes from informed people.

Jeez, who greenlights for US News?

gimpel:
Oh, how I would love the irony if this were true. First woman Vice President AND first attractive and successful African-American Vice President! And not a Democrat.

After the Vice President stepped down in disgrace.
Yes, what a triumphant moment.

"Attractive"?
*vomits*

tea: Why does that crack me up so much?

You and me both.

"Yes, brilliant woman, good connections and loyalty to the Party...ah! Pro-choice! hell with that, bubba."
 
2005-10-18 03:24:27 PM  
Condi doesn't need Bush to choke on a pretzel to become president.

gimpel: Oh, how I would love the irony if this were true. First woman Vice President AND first attractive and successful African-American Vice President! And not a Democrat.

Don't forget lesbian, too.

Or haven't you noticed the code words that the press has been using regarding her for years?

darknemus: you reap what you sew

That's sow - as in sowing seed. Sewing is done to clothes. Sighing is done at smug leftists who've been failed by State Education, ironically.

article: Vice President Cheney's office is involved in the Plame-CIA spy link investigation

Did I miss this? Cheney AND Rove going down for this?

/If I haven't seen it, it's new to me!

gimpel: first attractive and successful African-American Vice President! And not a Democrat.

I was with you until then. Are you kidding me?

On topic, holy poop.

do not feed the trolls.

thank you.
 
2005-10-18 03:25:39 PM  
This was written like an "Onion" article, and was about as far from news as I can imagine.
 
2005-10-18 03:25:51 PM  
I hereby extend a laurel & hearty handshake to our new vice attractive and successful African-American!
 
2005-10-18 03:25:53 PM  
smackem yackem: "Attractive"?
*vomits*


Methinks gimpel didn't type "attractive and successful African-American", but typed the other word.
 
2005-10-18 03:25:54 PM  
Good riddance. Tell him to take Rove with him and don't let the door hit them in the arse.
So what would happen if George and Condi were left in charge.
I'm thinking it would be much like an episode of I love lucy.
 
2005-10-18 03:25:55 PM  
Get rid of Cheney and have Rice poised as a former VP in time to run against Hilary?

Sounds win-win to me. Which means it probably won;t happen.
 
2005-10-18 03:26:05 PM  
yeah,
I'm sure it's due to his heart and health and not this Plame thing.
, also.

say it is. then ask yourself if he wasn't healthy enough to be VP, then he wasn't healthy enough to be P, then why the fark was he on the '04 ticket?
then file those with the rest of your unaswered questions for this regime.

anyone every heard of a VP resigning?
 
2005-10-18 03:26:31 PM  
EnormousJuan: Condi Rice can't handle SecOState...she's gonna fall down as VP

Then Bush is sure to nominate her for the position.
 
2005-10-18 03:26:33 PM  
C'mon you guys. It is a Fark cliche. Get with the program! (I personally don't find her attractive.)

bpennington: /good luck being retarded it must be hard...

Heheh. You've clearly got too much time on your hands on the DL.
