Schadenfreude on the sidelines

Are you just loving this? Are you rubbing your hands together in wriggling delight? Is the news bringing a smile to your face for the first time in… oh, I don’t know… seven years or so?

The fabric of Republican ascendancy, whose warp is Lies and whose woof is Doom, is unravelling before our very eyes. First one thread… irrepressible Iraqi insurgency. Then another… Valerie Plame. Then another… Hurricane Katrina. And another… Harriet Miers. Not to mention the related issues of the ethics (or lack thereof) of Frist and DeLay. And though the spinning wheels are cranking away as hard as they can, Rumpelstiltskin has abandoned them and they’re no longer having any luck spinning bullshit into electoral gold.

Only 29% of Americans say the country is going in the right direction. An astounding 98% of African-Americans have an unfavorable impression of Bush. Popular support for the war has fallen from 69% in March 2003 to 41% as of October 10.

James "Whack ’em if ya love ’em" Dobson has just turned himself into political poison by demonstrating a congenital impossibility to keep his big hateful mouth shut. Karl Rove is MIA, persona non grata, looking at some fat juicy summonses from Courts of Law.

I would give voice to a booming "Mwa-ha-hah," but that would be uncomfortably reminiscent of Karl Rove. So I will stick to a mild "Tee hee!" and continue with the creepy grinning and hand-rubbing.

Tee hee!
