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?
Since Pitt is censoring and screening Ty's phone calls, perhaps a registered letter copy of the postings from Pitt would be in order. ?
Then talked to Pitt a bit. I asked him about Communist A.N.S.W.E.R. and the Sept. 23 rally. He said PDA worked with A.N.S.W.E.R. but that he himself never talked to anybody from answer. He actually stressed that twice. Then I asked what he thought of even the leftist Daily Kos calling that rally an embarrassment and Pitt said he didn't read that Kos piece. Now claims PDA will have nothing to do with A.N.S.W.E.R. again.
And how Pitt can quote EXTENSIVELY a conversation at least a day earlier is beyond me. I can remember the conversation we had but not to the point of quoting WHOLE paragraphs.
Ty is now claiming that he read the post but I just checked my phone and EXACTLY 5 minutes elapsed between when Ty hadn't read Pitt's piece (and Pitt wouldn't let me read it to him over the phone) and when I called Pitt back and heard the claim that Ty did read the piece. In 5 minutes? In a bar? How? Inquiring minds want to know.
p.s. Remember when Ty first called me he was unaware of Pitt's piece.
It could all be made up bullcrap imo. Don't be so sure that Pitt (the lush that he is) wasn't sitting at the bar with a buddy and the call came for Ty. They played it trying to figure out who you were. If it was really Ty and he read that and agreed - he must be a rube to allow someone to talk about him as if he were one.
Look, Pitt put the bounty out there so that pretty much opens up the door for this guy to be questioned. If he is upset by you calling his work, he has nobody to blame but Pitt.
Good Job PJ!!!!
Good questions by the way.
I still say send the transcripts including the 10000 bet posts.
I think that should be your 06 campaign slogan - "Vote Democrat then Impeach Bush". In fact, I think its such a great idea that I'm going to make up lots of moonbat signs and protest with you. The moderates & independents will just love the idea...
Correct. Pitt puts up a $10,000 bounty and then acts upset when someone tries to locate Ty?
Oh, I mentioned to Pitt that the DUmmies are so obsessed about impeachment since it gives the DUFUs lots of great material.
Condi as POTUS for 2 years. Please don't throw me in that briar patch. LOL.
Also the RNC needs to play the video of Harry Reid gloating over killing the Patriot Act over and over and over and over again in the weeks leading up to Election Day 2006. OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
So, Ty specifically said that the conversation occurred exactly as Pitt wrote it?
It didn't sound convincing to me. He said it was correct in every detail. Yet as of 5 minutes earlier he hadn't read it and Pitt wouldn't allow me to read it to him. In that 5 minute period (I called back to Pitt 5 minutes later) Ty, while busy at work, supposedly read it and verified it. How would he read it at a bar in that time frame? Does not compute.
Does NOT compute.
It takes me at least 15 minutes to wade through Pitt's flaccid prose. Of course, half that time is spent suppressing the gag reflex.
I thought I remembered Pitt defending his pathetic protestation some time after the miserable failure.
I reminded him of his posting defending having to work with A.N.S.W.E.R. but, on the phone, Pitt claims he NEVER had any dealings personally with ANY member of A.N.S.W.E.R.. He emphasized this to me twice.
I'm still trying to figure out how (without a tape recorder) he can quote extensively from a conversation that took place at least a day earlier. Did you notice I have relayed in general what Pitt said but no exact quotes? Why? Because I don't have an automatic tape recorder in my head that can be played back at my convenience.
Self-serving self-aggrandizement is always hilarious :)
I just finished reading through and it is a hoot.
Ya know, its funny how attempts to overthrow this "fascist regime" keep getting thwarted by the US Constitution.
*wavefile of DUmmie-lurker heads exploding*
No DUFU in the AM tomorrow since I have to go somewhere early. Hope to have a DUFU later in the day.
