Survivor


(AP Photo, Thursday, Nov. 20, 2008)

Candy Margaret Spellingses may come and Condis may go, but one thing, it seems, will always be with us: teeny, tiny –yet perfectly proportioned in every way– Robert Gates looks to be the sole survivor of the Bush administration. Well done! The adorable, huggable cotton-top will continue to delight and amaze us for, oh, just oodles of months to come. So totally fun!

So, you know, every week has its crushing disappointments (Why, Ursula? Why?) and its precious silver linings.

Aw, don't you just want to put him in your pocket? So cute!

As you know, Princess, I have never commented on "OMG what are you going to do without that horrible Hoover Institution Bitch to make fun of?"

In fact, I'm totally excited at the prospect of her impending absence (and horrified that the evil witch is going to soon be returning to MY neighborhood in Northern California). Washington, D.C. better gird itself. The Pink Pony is loose and you're all fair game for that glittering, swishable tail.

Thanks again for all the hard work masked as effortlessness, Mr. Peteykins. You are definitely here for a purpose, as those sweet, silly new age California people would say.

Robert Reich is just as tiny and perfect but a hell of a lot smarter. He actually looks good in a beard, too.

Didn't Reich pose nude for something, somewhere?

It's like the children's book: The Littlest Defense Secretary Who Could

We'll still have Gatesy to kick around! Give him a hoof, Princess!

Actually, he looks like a used Q-tip. With policies to match.

My boss is even tinier.
Snack sized, if you will.

So, what DOES Gates have to do to get voted of the island?

He's like Gepetto without the beard and glasses!

Gates gets to stay b/c he grew up in the same obscure Kansas town as Obama's maternal grandparents. Am not making this up.
