Random ramblings from my beer soaked melon about politics, religion, sex, stupidities, nature, and any other subject that penetrates the haze. Sometimes crude and not for the faint of heart or people with normal intelligence, or an abundance of common sense.

Inside every working anarchy, there's an Old Boy Network. Mitchell Kapor

The newest rumor is that Dick (The Shooter) Cheney will retire sometime after the 2006 elections. The first question that came to mind was, retire from public service or Halliburton?
Turns out it is as Vice President (aptly named job title) so Halliburton will still have their cash cow.
I guess there has been a failure to communicate between his people and the President’s people. He didn’t even tell them about his little hunting adventure for 18 hours. He will have to defend himself against charges from his former chief of staff, Lewis (Scooter) Libby that Cheney ordered him to relay classified information, that could even result in impeachment proceedings. His approval rating is down to 18% and Bush is at 34%.
If he is quitting it opens some interesting possibilities. Who would Forrest pick to take his place? Well who will be available at the end of the year?
I didn’t realize that Jeb Bush will be unemployed when his current term as Florida Governor ends. Hummmm.
Gonna be an interesting year.

    I think they have been planning to get Jeb in for some time. I think in 2008 we will see Jeb and Condi on a ticket to beat Hilary, and unfortunately, I think they might, given only idiots seem to vote in our country. (Or does who we vote for even matter anymore??)
