Turn the other cheek ????????

I DON"T THINK SO!!!! MY Fav juicy Bush Gossip ...

"The Bushes were part of a five-person group sitting at a table in the [Chuy's] restaurant Tuesday night when other patrons, a waitress and a bartender recognized Jenna Bush, who will be a sophomore at the University of Texas. Mia Lawrence, the restaurant's manager, said she asked to see Jenna Bush's driver's license. The picture on the license, however, looked "slightly off," Lawrence said, and had another person's name on it. "It was a valid Texas driver's license; it just wasn't hers," Lawrence said. Other people at the table with Jenna Bush had what appeared to be valid identification, including her sister. Barbara Bush, whom the restaurant staff didn't recognize, was served a margarita and a tequila shot, Lawrence said.

"Lawrence said she called 911 and reported that Jenna Bush was trying to buy alcohol with someone else's identification. Lawrence said one of the officers who responded, Sgt. Rodney Keene, asked her what she wanted to do about the situation. "He suggested that I turn the other cheek," she said. "I said I felt the police should do what they normally do." Police said Keene was not available for comment. Police spokeswoman Sally Muir said, "I never heard that." Bartenders and managers typically deal with fake identifications by confiscating them or refusing service, not by calling 911, [Assistant Police Chief Jimmy] Chapman said. Whether Chuy's routinely calls 911 to report minors who are attempting to buy alcohol couldn't be determined Thursday. The restaurant was referring questions to a spokesman who could not be reached. The group was getting ready to leave the restaurant when police arrived, [Assistant Police Chief Jimmy] Chapman said. Chapman said there was too much commotion at the restaurant Tuesday night to issue the tickets. "It got kind of convoluted," he said. Instead, police sent the girls on their way with Secret Service agents and continued to interview witnesses....The Bushes signed the [police citations] at their lawyer's office Thursday. Both charges are Class C misdemeanors under the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code and carry a fine of up to $500, attendance at an alcohol awareness course, community service and 30-day driver's license suspension. "They were very cooperative," Assistant Police Chief Jimmy Chapman said." --Austin American-Statesman, 6/1/01

Laura kills a young boy and says "IT'S "SAD" THAT HER "TRAGIC ACCIDENT" HAS BEEN UNEARTHED"

"The daughter of a home builder and a homemaker who kept her husband's books, Laura Welch decided by second grade to become a teacher. Life in Midland was both limited and enriched by oil. Children rode their bikes down hot streets and went to the drive-in in their PJs. When the first lady was in high school, friends recall, social life consisted of dancing to the Drifters in the basement – she loved to dance – and sneaking cigarettes on joy rides. One night in November 1963, a ride went wrong. Laura, who had just turned 17, didn't see a stop sign and hit a car driven by Mike Douglas, a track star who ran with her crowd. He died at the scene. She was not charged. "That was a very hard time," says Regan Gammon, her friend since they were Brownies. "He was wonderful. It changed everyone in some way. I know I was so sad I might not have been able to see how sad Laura was. He was a very close friend of Laura's." In the past, the first lady has said she thinks it is "sad" this piece of her background has been unearthed. Now, however, she discusses it evenly but with that resolute self-possession. "It makes me have more of a perspective on life," she says of what she calls "a tragic accident. And maybe I would already have had that perspective anyway. I just got it at 17." --Washington Post, 3/22/01

all i can say is , its tragic for her but just think of the kid she killed ...but oh i remeber she is a fuck wad rich bitch who can hide her transgressions now ......

It pays to bed the woman in charge of the votes ...

The Jeb Bush-Katherine Harris rumors in the media will be heating up again, according to the pro-Bush folks at"America's most notable supermarket tabloids...are set to reveal a bombshell story about an affair between Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris," according to those tabloids. "News of the tabloid story - said to be backed up by three witnesses, all of whom took polygraphs - has the Bush transition team and Florida governor's office bracing. A source at the Bush transition team says that Jeb Bush was soon going to name Harris his chief of staff. The position of secretary of state has been eliminated under changes made before the recount crisis hit. The story of Bush and Harris has been floating around almost from the day the election nightmare hit on Nov. 8." 1/9/01 more

Now this is restoring dignity all right heheheheh.....

It turns out that the real reason Bush's brother Jeb didn't do much for his brother the last month of the campaign was that he didn't want reporters asking about his son's shocking behavior, thus giving a lie to Bush's boast that he would being dignity to the White House. As the editors of
CounterPunch note, "On recently revisiting the Smoking Gun site [Tallahassee observer Jack McCarthy] was 'shocked' to read that on October 7 of this year, Gov. Jeb's other young'un, John 'Jebby' Bush was caught humping away in the front seat of his Cherokee jeep in the parking lot of the Tallahassee Mall by security guards. According to the TPD Police report, mall security noticed 'fogged up windows' and found them naked from the waists down, except for Bush who was wearing 'socks.' Hopefully with suspenders in the Yale colors. Ah, those patrician Bushes. Breeding will out.

"Anent young Jebby's rampages, Jack tells us that on October 24--only days after the arrest- the following story appeared in the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel under the headline: 'Jeb Bush Too Tired to Campaign?' 'It's surprising that the race is as close as it is,' the Sentinel quoted Florida political scientist Jim Kane. 'But the biggest surprise is that Jeb has not been out on the campaign trail.' 'I can't do anymore than I am, I'm tired,' Bush said. Jack opines that 'it's perfectly logical that Jeb was afraid that the Jebby story would get out in the midst of his support for his brother's pledge to restore dignity to the White House.' Imagine some reporter asking Jeb if it wasn't time to 'restore dignity' to the Tallahassee Mall parking lot." 1/11/01

Bush Isn't Dyslexic, He's Possessed

OK, so I've been puzzled all day. Why wouldn't Bush jump at the chance to blame all his linguistic atrocities on dyslexia? I mean, if he's a bona fide dyslexic, as opposed to a lazy, arrogant, anti-intellectual cretin who obviously doesn't spend much time reading or listening carefully to articulate spoken English (an alternative diagnosis), then we all have to leave him alone, right? I mean, a neurological disorder is a neurological disorder. If Bush claimed to be dyslexic, all us bleedin' heart liberals would have to shut up and cut him a great deal of slack.

Of course, it's possible that the Bush campaign has decided on the "hell no, we're not dyslexic" position because they simply do not wish to admit that Bush makes verbal blunders and has, unscripted, the vocabulary of a twelve-year-old. Once again, though, one has to ask why the Bushies would rather deny the obvious than latch onto such a useful explanation. Surely there are no soccer moms in the Northern Hemisphere who are unsympathetic to any and all permutations of the rather nebulous term "learning disability." I mean, somebody buys all that Ritalin and all those "Hooked on Phonics" books. Dyslexia looks like a major winner with the swing voters to me.

Ah, but therein, I think, lies the problem. What the soccer moms propose, the Theocrats oppose, big time. Bush can't admit to being dyslexic because it is, I discover, one of the symptoms of . . . demonic possession.

Yep. Having just spent some time with one J. F. Cogan's "Demon Possession Handbook for Human Service Workers," I can state with authority that George W. Bush is possessed by demons. This would obviously create a rather significant problem if the Texas Republican Church and the rest of the Christian Right found out about it, so I can see why Bush would want to deny the problem. But the truth--rather like the demons--will out eventually
According to Mr. Cogan, there are four major symptoms of demonic possession: "The four basic symptoms are: (1) violence, (2) lust, (3) greed, and (4) an unnatural power of persuasion. A born-again (and Spirit-filled) Christian can discern the presence of demons in a human by using a technique which has been used by physicians for centuries: a study of the presence of symptoms. Although the demon (or demons) may never manifest itself openly by causing the victim to speak in a coarse, guttural voice or to act out in an antisocial manner, a study of the past behavior of such a person will reveal the presence of violence, lust, greed, and/or an unnatural power of persuasion."

Let's see. Bush has signed more death warrants than any other governor of the United States, and was of course famous for blowing up frogs as a child. We've all heard the stories of Bush offering to duke it out with Poppy, and we certainly know he can use highly aggressive language. I think we've clearly got the violence part.

Lust? Well, none of us cares to speculate on what goes on between George and Laura, but let us note that Bush himself has admitted to being a little more interested in "pussy"--at least in the first forty years of his childhood--than is surely consistent with Christian rectitude. And what's the first thing he does when he meets Oprah Winfrey? The signs of lustfulness seem clear, too.

Greed? A man who would sue over a minor fender-bender in defiance of his famous "tort reform" views? A man who would stick the taxpayers of Arlington with the bill for his baseball stadium, in order to net huge profits on a relatively modest investment? A man who would bail out of his company stock holdings at the first sign of trouble, rather than loyally sticking around and protecting the small shareholders? Greed? There can be no argument.

There can also be no argument over Bush's "unnatural power of persuasion." The polls indicate that there are people being persuaded by what the man says. This is unnatural. Lest anyone is still unsure, let us return to Mr. Cogan: "The modern cult leader is a classic example of a person with a demon enhanced power of persuasion. This is persuasive power which goes beyond a charismatic personality coupled with effective communication skills. This is the kind of persuasion which can convince large groups of people to band together with no visible and logical reasons for doing so."

The Republican Convention immediately leaps to mind, doesn't it? Only Bush's demonic powers could convince Colin Powell that he should "band together" with these lame honkies. But, you might say, these four symptoms are in evidence in most politicians. Yes, that's true. It is the presence of an obvious learning disability that is the clincher:

You may find this theory a little far-fetched, but as Mr. Cogan assures us, we are easy to fool: "The unnatural power of persuasion coupled with the intermittent nature of the possession enables the primary victim to lie with a straight face. This makes it extremely difficult for anyone to believe that what appears to be a fine, upstanding citizen such as a teacher, minister, lawyer, doctor, boy scout leader, nationally-known televangelist, or major politician could ever be guilty as accused. This ability to lie with total conviction makes identification of such demon-possessed persons extremely difficult by such groups as school boards, church boards, bar associations, medical societies, legislative bodies, and juries."

There you have it. Bush is not "in denial" about dyslexia. He is channeling Beelzebub. And as I'm sure you also know, this means that he must be lying about having been born again, since it is a matter of actual fact that demons cannot possess those who have accepted Christ as their personal savior.
