There's always something...

It can't be outright nut-itude. That would be too obvious. But there's always something, some quietly hidden rapaciousness or visciousness or just plain fucked-up-edness about these lunatics. Like Frist and his cat vivisections, or (since cancer seems to be one of the day's topics) Gingrich leaving his cancer-stricken wife in the hospital. You know, ruin whoever or whatever you have to, it doesn't matter if you win!!

I mean, it's not enough that the guy has styled himself so that he looks like G. Gordon Liddy if he were to morph into a graphic novel supervillan. And it's not enough that he'll have achieved a level of power few bodyguards can dream of. No, he's gotta have that loyalty to the party. They all do. Doesn't matter if they're wrong, because they're always right.

Of course, NYC Police Commissioners have a reputation for being, shall we say -- flamboyant in their zeal to do the job, so it's no enormous shock that there's been some behind-the-scenes, arm-twisting shenanegans.

These appointees and cabinet people, and general BushCo flunkies are the sorts of people that are very scary when they can get the job they'd like to get done accomplished... Thank G-d for incompetence. I never thought I'd say that, but I think it's been our secret, saving grace for quite a few years now.

Of course, I'm sure the Iraqi people feel differently. I know those soldiers that grilled Rumsfailed do...
