President Bush is undergoing a routine colonoscopy tomorrow, which means Dick Cheney will be our president—officially, as opposed to shadowy—for the day.

Let's hope Bush is still a "useful idiot" for the neo-cons and does not "pass on" accidently during the procedure.....

I wish somebody would give that douchebag (Dick) a colonoscopy. Hope it's painful!

If THIS doesn't qualify as a "technicality" I don't know what does.

Oh. My. Gawd.

There is an incredible "Revolution for Dummies" article up on Wonkette that's a must read. Highlights:

"They’re immune to all laws, they can throw you in the gulag for any reason at all, and they can lock up all your money and property if you’re “impeding” whatever crazed satanic bullshit they’re doing now or in the future. So what can Congress or the Military or you, the hapless citizen, actually do to stop them?

Congress can have double-secret proceedings, too!: “Both chambers also have an “inherent contempt” power, allowing either body to hold its own trials and even jail those found in defiance of Congress."

Military Coup d’Etat: This would be kind of hilarious, if directed against the Bush/Cheney administration, because constitutional scholars have been saying for several years that the White House has been running an “incremental coup” that militarizes everything, including domestic law and corporations — the NSA is a military agency, now spying on Americans within the United States using American telecommunications companies.

Appetite for Destruction: The challenge for those hoping to get participation from today’s slow, ill-informed, fat American slugs is they won’t do anything like this simply for political reasons. There must be free liquor and food.

White House Trump Card: You can bet that while Bush is unconscious tomorrow (and likely to tragically never recover because the doctors sort of accidentally put him down with a massive overdose of sodium thiopental), President Cheney will be readying complete White House seizure of power as made possible by the National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive...

Then what do you do? Well, it turns out he’s not too popular and that a whole lot of regular working Americans are the people who work for the various police forces, government agencies, your local military bases and National Guard armories, etc. They’re the ones who have to round you up, send you to the FEMA death camps, etc. Let’s hope they decide that’s all kind of a rotten idea!

If not, just remember that nobody’s bulletproof."

Holy shit.

This may deserve its own Slog post.

@ Original Andrew ; DUH!!!!! You are finally getting this??? A little late to the party aren't you? But welcome anyway. I would suggest listening to a little 1090AM and some Thom Hartman or Randi Rhodes. Some of it is pretty damn scary what has already happened in the country. And Cheney signed a document for one of the neo-conservative think tanks (I think it was AEI) in 1998 saying that a "Pearl Harbor like event" would allow a leader to consolidate power: preferable a neo-con.

Cato the Younger Younger @ 14,

"DUH!!!!! You are finally getting this??? A little late to the party aren't you? But welcome anyway."

You'd better watch that sass-mouth, or I'll grab your self-described sweet legs!

Oh hell, maybe we'll be BFFs in the "FEMA Death Camps®."

And my legs are "Fucking Hot", NOT sweet please quote me correctly! HURMPH!! Besides, you are not my type.

Or, more accurately, the puppet master will pull his hand out of the puppet's ass for a couple hours.
