Gross-Out

Last week I showed a picture (with no comment; I knew all of you would fill the gap) of cadaverous, horrifying Dick Cheney at the ground breaking ceremony for the George W. Bush Propaganda Presidential Center at SMU. It was frightening! This past weekend, however, I received a gentle tap on the shoulder from our most distinguished Pony Pal™, Georgetown University's John Brown, who basically said, "Aren't you ignoring some other terrible sights from this horror show?" And as you can see above, John's hideously correct. How could I have missed this rapturous, awful kiss? And of course Condi was there. She was one of the shovel wielders! Let's have a more focused look at this superb gross-out:


Ugh. My God. It looks like Bush is about to French Condi's nose. Barf. Here's something else: Condi and Crazy Eyes Laura were dressed nearly identically in their little red suits. What does it all mean?

As an aside, it seems like Condi's book basically sank without a trace. Oh, sure, it sold a ton of copies, as I predicted, but it never made the NY Times Bestsellers List and appears to have left no lasting marks upon the world. In this way, the book nicely symbolizes Condi's career: it made a good first impression, but accomplished nothing.

Speaking of good first impressions, here's my favorite photo from the ground breaking ceremony, also from the Associated Press. I can't for the life of me figure out why they released this wonderful photo, but I'm glad they did:

Well done, Mr. Scott. I hope Cheney didn't get too much drool all over it.

Always nice when she can be with her husband.

Wow, she is just totally in love with that chimp, isn't she?

I can hear a lushly stringed version of "The Way We Were" playing in Condi's little buffle-head.

Peteykins, you don't remember all the important accomplishments podium cleaner John Scott added to the Bush legacy? I'm surprised at you.

And speaking of sinking without a trace, do you think Bush's book sales will even count as a blip once the second Palin book is released? In Republican Reading Land, a half term governor trumps a two term president.

I think that may have something to do with Barbara being so bitchy about Sarah on the Larry King show.

So fucking fug.

So evil.

So many innocent dead on 9/11 thanks to them.

So many innocent dead the world over after that, thanks to them.

Not a care in the world, these two. Life couldn't be better. Lah.

GAH, that photo. Trying to think of some snark, but too busy wishing I could resign from this species.

God. That pic of Bush and Condi makes me want to projectile vomit.
Just when I was about to put them into the past nightmares box, here they come again, kissing.
So gross.

i wonder if they left pickles with deadeye dick and went shoe shopping afterward. condi tried them on, and chimpy dodged them as the salesman chucked them at his head.

oh, you see Condi's hair on her interview with tavis smiley last night?

I wonder what one uses to wipe down a podium that is covered in some horrible mix of sychophantic bullshit and PureEvil™?

Flamethrower?

Do you think he thought there might be traces of coke in her nostrils?

*shudder*

I feel so sick right now.
