The SurvivaBall

The Yes Men do it again!

The Halliburton SurvivaBall ™ "is designed to protect the corporate manager no matter what Mother Nature throws his or her way," said Fred Wolf, a Halliburton representative who spoke today at the Catastrophic Loss conference held at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Amelia Island, Florida.

Last night's Sopranos ripped on Halliburton's profiteering in New Orleans. Tony is making a killing down there, and one of his buddies asks him how. "Let's just say, God Bless Dick Cheney."

Wonder if Halliburton is working overtime to figure out how the immigration crisis can be converted to cash? Me, neither.

I expect they don't have to work overtime anymore. They probably were consulted with, as the white house came up with their plan.

I tell ya, there aren't many days Crumb's observation doesn't come to mind: "How perfectly goddamn delightful it all is, to be sure." Thanks for putting that in my head, forever.

Here's something to cheer you up:

Bush styled himself after Reagan, but he may be remembered as the Anti-Reagan. IOW, he may make it difficult for Republicans to win elections for a generation. We can only hope. But at such a cost.

The GOP can't stomach consecutive Bushes. Even they aren't that stupid. I can see Jeb getting the 2012 nomination, but not 2008. It will be McCain in 2008. That's the GOP's idea of picking a centrist. 8^O

My hands tremble when I type "2012." Fuck, am I OLD.
