Posted on 12/29/2005 9:43:03 AM PST by PJ-Comix
The only thing more bizarre than the DUmmie THREAD featured in the DUmmie FUnnies this morning where the DUmmies fantasized about a reality-challenged scenario where Bush gets chimpeached is this DUmmie THREAD titled, "The post impeachment administration: Powell-Gore?" As you might have surmised from the title, the DUmmies are already assuming the fantasy of a chimpeachment and are now planning on the makeup of the post-chimpeachment administration. Colin Powell isn't even in government any more but that small fact doesn't seem to interfere with the DUmmie fantasy as you shall see. Even more bizarre is that Powell would somehow choose Al Gore to be his vice-president. But wait, DUmmies! Why stop there? I mean since we are in your Alternate Reality, wouldn't Powell say to himself that Gore was really elected in 2000 and then meekly step aside and let Gore take over the presidency? As usual, the DUmmie Fantasies being channeled from the Alternate Universe are in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, envisioning my own Alternate Reality of Petra Verkaik and Salma Hayek battling it out in a hotel room over who gets first dibs at my body, is in the [brackets]:
The post impeachment administration: Powell-Gore?
[Or Tooth Fairy-Kucinich?]
I believe that if the Democrats take the House after the mid term congressional elections, there will be an impeachment. Moreover, the Democratic majority will give cover to disgruntled Republicans to join the impeachment effort.
[How kind of you to give cover to the disgruntled Republicans of the Alternate Universe.]
However, we have to keep in mind that it is almost a certainty that impeachment will not change Republican party control of the executive branch. This is because the outgoing president will control the appointment of a vice president.
[Damn that Constitution!]
As during the Nixon administration, once Congress decides that impeachment is a real possibility, they will first have to force out a corrupt vice president -- then Agnew, today Cheney. It is inconceivable that Congress would impeach Bush, but allow the author and instigator of most of his crimes, Cheney, to assume the presidency.
[And don't forget Denny Hastert. We must get rid of him too! Plus everybody down to about the 145th level of succession.]
This raises an important question for Democrats: Who will be the post impeachment president and vice president?
[Why ask the Democrats? They have NO input as to the post chimpeachment president and vice president.]
Almost all the Republicans in the administration and the Senate are simply too tainted either by the crimes of the administration or corruption in Congress. Both parties' leaders will be trying to clean house, signal a move by the Republicans from the extreme fringe right policy positions and send a message to the international community that the US is ready to return to the "reality based" international community -- all in the same appointment.
[Your use of the term "reality based" already has me doubling up in laughter.]
Frankly, the only viable Republicans are John McCain and Colin Powell, and given the international crisis that Bush has created, Powell is the far more likely candidate.
[Thanx for just killing McCain's primary election chances in '08. Any "Republican" considered "viable" by the DUmmies needs to be prevented from getting the presidential nomination by REAL Republicans.]
At this point, however, because of the unprecedented fiscal, military and international challenges the federal government will face, Democrats need to insist on some kind of "government of national unity" -- in other words, the appointment of a Democratic vice president. The only Democrat with the stature to be vice president under those circumstances is Al Gore, both because of his experience as vice president and because he actually won the popular vote in 2000.
[This fantasy scenario will only happen with the proper astological alignment. Namely Uranus must be aligned in front of your face.]
You may disagree with this analysis and proposed administration, but I hope you'll agree that it's time for progressive Democrats to look ahead and begin planning for the post-Bush administration.
[How about the more modest goal of planning for your institutionalization, DUmmie HamdenRice ? And now on to the other DUmmie comments...]
powell is an asshole solidly in the bush pocket and the world knows he is a liar who likes to advance his own interests ... existing patriotic feelings in powell? NONE! so, why get rid of an asshole to put in place another asshole? sorry for the foul language. i have no other way to express my utter contempt for powell.
[Nice to see you get all worked up over a fantasy that WON'T be happening in this Reality.]
I don't disagree at all ... but the point is, that the Republicans will control the successor to Bush-Cheney. Powell lied about the war, but he has bee furiously apologizing and leaking his embarrassment ever since he left office. Surely you can see he is positioning himself for the succession?
[Yeah. Powell has nothing better to do with his time than planning for a DUmmie Fantasy scenario that WON'T be happening.]
republicans would never vote for GORE and on principle GORE should not stand with any republican in a ticket nor take second place to it. he would be another asshole if he, for a second time, would willingly accommodate the assholes.
[How noble of Gore to turn down a position that WON'T be offered to him.]
After all this national trauma, would you prefer .... Powell-McCain? Or Powell-Santorum? If we are going to control a post-Bush administration, I think we need someone in at a very high level.
i am not dreamin' republicans are not going to let go of power and control and without the bush machine to act as their backbone...neither sanctoroom nor mackane have the charisma to do what bush has done...unless they are using diebold machines, i have the feeling that even with those two running the country, much of democracy would return to these shores. although, i may be totally wrong.
[Or totally deluded for extending even the least bit of credibility to this thread.]
The succession to the presidency is defined...I don't think your scenario accounts for the fact that the Constitution was amended to provide a clearly defined succession of the Presidency. How is your scenario going to get around the 25 amendment?
[By leaning back, closing his eyes, and clicking his heels together three times while wishing real hard.]
I guess the OP thinks it would go like this: Dubya is impeached and removed from office. Cheney becomes President and appoints a VP, say, Powell Cheney is then impeached and removed from office. Powell becomes President and appoints a new VP.
However, Bush will not be removed by the impeachment process. That is just a pipe dream.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
So who will be the post-Bush prez if not Powell?
And sending secret messages to the dummies with his tie selection.
Either taking drugs they are not supposed to or not taking the ones they are.
Strange that Pitt never mentioned to Ty that he is quoting him extensively on the Web. I'm still waiting for the call but it could be that Ty went looking online for Pitt's story himself.
Maybe he called Pitt first so he could do some more learnin and brushin up on his new edumacation he was gettin from Willy. Thens he can talk more smarter to you when he calls you back.
I bet Pitt never mentioned to Ty that he worked hand in hand with the Communist A.N.S.W.E.R. loonies to stage that Sept. demonstration in D.C.. Most likely Ty has no idea of Pitt's reputation as a leftwing blowhard and B.S. artist.
I doubt it. If he mentioned anything, it would remind you of the self-ingratiating Howard Stern is having done on Howard 100 on Sirius.
"I am the King, I am the greatest, I am so important, another beer please, I am the king, I am the greatest, I am so important........... blah blah blah blah blah."
Ty must know that Pitt is a world-famous self-aggrandizing socialist wordsmith with delusions of grandeur. I mean, he knows what Pitt does for a living.
Just a couple of minutes ago my phone rang. Was it Ty? No. It was Pied Piper Pitt HIMSELF!!! Definitely him because I've heard his voice before. First he wanted to know who I was. I just said: "DUmmie FUnnies." Then I said that I wanted to read his BS piece to Ty. Pitt then replied that Ty was standing right next to him. So I replied (note that I am not using quotes because even after a few minutes it is impossible to quote exactly) that I wanted to read him what Pitt wrote WORD FOR WORD.
At that point Pitt sounded VERY NERVOUS and said that he wouldn't let me talk to Ty and I basically stated that I would read Pitt's story without changing a word since I had the printout in front of me. Then Pitt hung up.
So Pitt. What's your problem? Afraid to let Ty hear WORD FOR WORD what you wrote? You might be justified in that fear. If I were Pitt I would be VERY AFRAID to have Ty standing next to me and while hearing WORD FOR WORD what you CLAIMED he said.
Figured as much. Just dang.
BTW, I wasn't just guessing it was Pitt. The caller identified himself as Pitt plus I have heard Pitt's voice before on a recording shilling for PDA.
Can't wait for the sanctimonious blather he will post at DU.
I only wish ALL of you could have heard the NERVOUSNESS in Pitt's voice when I asked him to put Ty on the line so I could read Pitt's BS piece to him "WORD FOR WORD." BTW, I am comfortable in putting quotes around "WORD FOR WORD" because I definitely EMPHASIZED that.
see 129 and before.
fun stuff. Hilarious.
You need to check out this latest on Pied Piper Pitt and his phone call to me a few minutes ago. It is all on this thread.
so he was nervous eh. Doesn't surprise me. His internet private parts get big sometimes. Waiting to see if someone takes up his little bet. Pay Ty the full 10000 grand Will would have to pay when Ty calls Will the self-indulging liar that he is --- just for the fun of it.
Still lmao that Ty ran to Pitt.
I have a word for that somewhere in my vocabulary but it is unacceptable to post here.
O...M...G... See #129 and then get the backstory at #64.
Pitt is going to get his arse kicked.
Pitt, as Ty gets ready to throw him through the front window of the bar: "Now, Ty, let's not talk politics. Re.. re..remember the invisible sign!"
