LSB: Ever since the 2004 Presidential Debates, where the mysterious bulge on Bush’s back was apparent to all and never fully explained (i.e., ‘bad tailoring’… yeah, I don’t think so!), I, too, wondered whether he was wired to Karl Rove et al for his alleged impromptu remarks and answers. While this link/site is, to be sure, partisan in its dogged insistence that he does wear a wire to press conferences, there is more than enough information to warrant at least a “Hmmm…” Thoughts?
First Frat Boy Likes to Fart: “[Bush] loves to cuss, gets a jolly when a mountain biker wipes out trying to keep up with him, and now we're learning that the first frat boy loves flatulence jokes. A top insider let that slip when explaining why President Bush is paranoid around women, always worried about his behavior. But he's still a funny, earthy guy who, for example, can't get enough of fart jokes. He's also known to cut a few for laughs, especially when greeting new young aides.”
LSB: This may not rise to the level of blow jobs in the White House, but it certainly falls short of restoring any dignity to the Office of the President.
Is Bret Baier the New "Jeff Gannon"? Is Fox News' White House correspondent Bret Baier spending his nights at the White House like former White House correspondent "Jeff Gannon"? The reason I ask is because Bush repeatedly smiled and winked at Baier, which was especially weird and disturbing because the topics being discussed were the death and destruction across the Middle East resulting from Bush's utterly failed policies. Baier is Bush's type, both physically (built like "Jeff Gannon") and career-wise (never served in the military, but spent a lot of time "sucking up" to military men). Calling all Gannon watchers: What do you think?
LSB: LOL! Seems preposterous, but I love it! This is exactly the type of thing Karl Rove did in Texas to get Bush elected in 1994. Rove would call conservative radio talk shows, disguise his voice, and ask questions about Ann Richard’s lesbian lover. Despite being married for more than 20 years, having children and grandchildren, and not one iota of truth in his suggestions, this kind of gossip spread like wildfire among conservative circles. Kind of takes one back to the pre-Watergate era of the Nixon campaign when Don Segretti was “rat fucking” the opposition. (Ok, now I’m dating myself.)
