In Times of Trouble, Go With What You Know

CNN is reporting tonight that, as Bush's approval ratings plummet to 32% in their latest poll, Josh Bolton, the new Chief of Staff, has a "Five Point Plan." I guess the three-year time window was too short for them to steal Stalin's slogan in its entirety, but at least they capture his spirit. Having tried everything else--OK, nothing else--they've decided on hard line ideological retrenchment. Tax cuts for rich people. Bash illegal immigrants. Saber rattle with Iran. "Brag More." (That is a direct quote.) And, finally, suck up to the press but attack them when they report reality. Brilliant! Sounds like the new boy will fit right in.

In related news, CNN also reports that FOX News anchor Tony Snow will replace Scott McClellan as the new press secretary, making him the highest ranking Davidson College graduate since Vince Foster. (I'd make a joke, but Foster deserves some respect, so I'll restrain myself.) Go Cats!

Looks like we'll be getting another Snow job. Shouldn't president's be impeached for that, rather than the other kind of job?
