Gonzo, Begone … And Take Your Pal Bush With You!
By Madeleine Begun Kane

It appears that the Bushies conspired
To ensure that some lawyers were fired,
Cause those lawyers refused
To let laws be abused.
In political crimes Bush is mired.

We're Freedom Shoppers

BREAKING NEWS: A Bush Joins Navy - Avoids Overseas Duty


A Navy spokesman says George P- Bush has been selected as one of 15 prospective ensigns for the Navy Reserves intelligence unit.

The 30-year-old University of Texas law school graduate is the son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and nephew of President Bush...They will go through a two-week officer indoctrination school, a year of Navy basic intelligence training and be assigned to Navy reserve intelligence units close to their homes.



Was This Included In His Application?


George P. Bush might be a hunkalicious young Republican, but he still seems a bit creepy. On December 31, 1994, Bush showed up at 4 AM at the Miami home of a former girlfriend. He proceeded to break into the house via the woman's bedroom window, and then began arguing with his ex's father. Bush, then a Rice University student, soon fled the scene. But he returned 20 minutes later to drive his Ford Explorer across the home's front lawn, leaving wide swaths of burned grass in his wake. Young Bush avoided arrest when the victims declined to press charges. (3 pages)

Subject: The nickname Bush gave Alberto Gonzales


Anyone care to bet Bush could find a Puzo book in a library?
Smart money says no.
And finish a Godfather book before, say, 1/20/09?
No way.
And, should he even get that far, recognize "'Fredo"?
Hell no.




I bet Bush has all of the Godfather movies in his DVD "Liberry". He likes bullies and blood.

In Godfather II, Fredo Corleone was shot in the back of the head in the middle of a lake. His brother Michael ordered the hit for betraying him.


I sure wouldn't want that nickname.

I wouldn't think Alberto Gonzales thinks his nickname is derived from the "Fredo Bandito".

"Yesterday the Supreme Court debated a case in which a high school student in Alaska was suspended for bringing the banner that said 'Bong Hits 4 Jesus' to school. The school got mad and the argument is about whether or not the student's right to free speech was violated. The case is Roe v. Weed" --Jimmy Kimmel
