The Company You Keep

President Bush, center, shakes hands with Sen. Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn., left, as Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, looks on, after signing the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007, Friday, Aug. 3, 2007, in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington. (AP Photo/Ron Edmonds)

My coworker David would like to point out that Lieberman doesn't even bother waiting for Bush to turn around and drop trou before puckering up.

Dearest, most admired Princess,

With the greatest of respect, I don't understand the above pix (and unfortunately -- blame my ignorance -- your comment to it), except that the angle of its personages reminds me of the Jack Ruby (here Dubya) photo of the shooting of Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas after the Kennedy assassination.

PS. Love your green puppies.

Joe Lieberman! He's bi-partisan, he's non-partisan, he's ambi-partisan all by himself! He's everything good about Washington, DC.

Wait a moment... I may have that last sentence wrong. What's that word? Opposite of good? Yeah, that's it. Put that word in instead.

That's more like a Low Five than a handshake. Are you supposed to, like, close your hands when you shake?

Maybe Bush is smacking Lieberman's hand away from an obscured cookie or something.

Let's see, anonymous... it isn't funny if you have to explain it (maybe political blogs aren't for you?), but here goes:

Lieberman is a senator from Connecticut, and he was a Democrat, but now he isn't, and he's always kissing George Bush's (the President of the United States') ass!

And there's an old saying that you're judged by the company you keep, and there Joe Lieberman is with Ted Stevens (an almost comically corrupt Republican senator) and... George W. Bush (widely disliked).

Get it? Trust me, it's hi-fucking-larious.

Ted looks like his nappies are bunched.

That handshake is obviously some kind of secret sleeze/darkside slime-grip that only the creepiest of politicians can use.
Please note the evil handshake coach, aka Ted Stevens, supervising these two youngsters on their slime-grip styles.
And Leiberman's lips are pursed because of the astringent nature of Coach Stevens's Preparation H.

Joe is thinking "ass, I need some ass. Bush ass, I need it now!" Therefore his lips curled up just so at the moment of hand contact.

Ted is a little jealous I think.

And it is truly hi-fucking-larious post indeed!

excellent humor. Well done!

have you read

4th Branch addresses Dennis Kucinich and Impeachment

In an astounding and rare press conference, VP Dick Cheney, has decided to address the growing impeachment movement throughout the country. Highlights of the event came when Cheney personally addressed Congressman Dennis Kucinich during his speech.
Cheney exclaimed,

"...and for you, Dennis, haven't you noticed all the 'I don't recalls' coming out of this administration lately. Once the 4th Branch speaks, nobody remembers. Got it. I suggest that you do the same. Back off with all your 'talk' of impeachment. I can't be impeached, you fool. I'm not even part of the executive. 'I have one foot in both camps'. I run this town, this country, this HOMELAND. Its mine."

or The Statements Don Rumsfeld did not say on Camera

In a shocking backroom statement, Donald Rumsfeld, after his House Committee appearance on the Tillman cover up inquiry ,exclaimed

"...Are you kidding? Do you remember Harry Whittington?...One hunting trip is all it takes....Of course 'I don't recall'. I don't want to eat buck shot. In fact I don't recall anything from the years in which I've known Dick. "

I hope you stop by. Thanks for the laughs RSS original content daily

Where's the last Horsemen? I'm waiting for the Apocalypse to spirit them all away. Well except Joe of course, since he's not born-again. Or Christian or officially a Republican.

Ted looks jealous. He hates to be the sloppy seconds guy. I bet if he had worn his Incredible Hulk tie, he could have been first this time.

Not to put a damper on our fun, but Bill O'Reilly called Daily Kos a hate site for having a collage that visually made every joke we are now making verbally. The collage had Droopy Dog on his knees, and quite honestly, is not at the quality level our Princess produces when she decides to power up PhotoShop.

BillO hating on the Princess! Think of the fabulous fun!
