President Bush is the Lone Ranger
I'm thrilled that checks and balances have been restored to the White House. George W. Bush ought to be thankful, too. Finally, he has an opportunity to work with qualified political professionals, and not the right-wing goon squad that has been rubber-stamping his deluded and destructive policies.
Bush reminds me of the old joke in which the Lone Ranger, surrounded by hostile Indians, turns to Tonto and says, "What are we going to do now?" Tonto emits an Indian war whoop and says, "What you mean we?"
The right wing has been kept afloat by cruelty, bully and bombast. Watch now for a rise in old-school Republicanism and a new, centered and sensible, Democratic party.
And Dick Cheney will resign to become a full-time babysitter (as opposed to remaining in office and finishing out two more years as a full-time babysitter.)
