This Should Finish Him Off

Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert (L) introduces U.S. President George W. Bush to speak at a campaign fundraiser in Chicago October 12, 2006. Bush appeared publicly for the first time with Hastert on Thursday since former Rep. Mark Foley's resignation over sexually explicit messages he sent to teenage male pages.

Aw, isn't that nice? What I totally don't get, though, is why Hastert thinks that appearing with Bush will make people like him more. And what's in it for Bush? Oh, right, that election thingee. Hastert's basically one of the very few House Republicans willing to be seen in public at all with the toxic, unpopular photo-op killer.

Mr. Hastert, if you want all the kids to like you, it's time to bring in a better class of photofriends. Please allow me to make a suggestion:

Studies show a perceptible rise in heat generated as a measure of IQ in the second photograph, as well as increased evidence of neuron activity and alpha-wave spikes indicative of cognitive thought.

Having grown up in Denny's district (and survived!) I have to say that he's never been good at appearances. (Would he way 300 lbs. if he were?) He just doesn't care. I think he thinks that's why people people vote for him (like some an exurb maverick). Frankly, I think it's just that the other Republicans (hello, Oberweiss, I'm looking at you) from that district are even more wacky.
