Attorney General Gonzales tagged the White House back today. As Clinton might tell you, it gets hard to strategize effectively in the middle of late-scandal lockdown mode. The grand playbook with which the administration started this scandal read something like, throw out a bunch of chaff and hope that it blows over. The principal actors expected to avoid a brouhaha and they clearly took Condi’s rhetoric about not having a plan B more literally than they should.
The chaff failed (“performance reasons,” “Rove not involved,” “we never meant to use the PATRIOT clause”) and now the principals are just making it up as they go along. Future historians will propose intricate three-wall bank shots that might save everyone’s hide and made this story go away, but right now Rove, Goodling, Gonzales, Sampson and Bush are just chasing that minor relief that comes from having the shotgun pointed at someone else for a few hours.
Just once, I wanna see that Bunny lose.
Whoa, maybe little Gonzo found a testicle. With the Attorneygate shit beginning to get a little deeper, possibly he knows new damage/spin control is being formulated in the WH. Maybe he doesn’t want to be the next Tenet.
Defeatocrat. You must hate America.
Elmer Fudd is American. Bugs Bunny is a cross-dressing dinner. Furthermore, he supports gun control. How much more of a moonbat can he be?
well, elmer admits to being a vegetarian. hippie leftist bastard.

True. I guess the only real neo-conservative type character here is Daffy Duck. He’s the one that patriotic Americans would root for.
Ah, but you’re forgetting Daffy was Robin Hood.
And how could you forget that? The scene where he tries to impress Friar Tuck/Porky Pig by swinging dramatically in on a vine, and keeps crashing into things, is a Laugh So Hard You Pee classic.
Nonsense. Wile E. Coyote is the true neo-con. Obsessively focused on the destruction of one individual. Spends a riduculous amount of money in order to attain his goal. His plans are ill-thought-out and always end in failure. And he continues to grant no-bid contracts to ACME, despite the continual flaws in their products.
Plus, he once snorted coke off the left butt cheek of a 19-year-old gay hooker.
I believe that’s game-set-match to Krista.
Thanks for the link, Tim.
And yeah, I’d say Krista wins…unless you want to consider Yosimite Sam as a Cheney with hair. He can even shoot himself in the foot while having a temper-tantrum.
Hmmm… He really is a neo-con; thinks he’s smarter than anybody else could possibly be, yet his plans keep blowing up in his face.
Fair enough, Wile E. Coyote is the supreme neo-con guy. But I was only dealing with the three characters on-screen. In this particular episode, Daffy Duck tries to save himself by finding another scapegoat to shoot at. Despite repeated failures and credibility lapses, he stands by his story to the very end of the episode. Gonzalez-esque behavior, if you ask me.
What’s Sylvester? Is he the equivalent of the corporate GOP lobby? Greedy, obsessed with stuffing himself regardless of the cost, persistent to the point of insanity… What do you guys think?
Don’t forget “he” once sawed off Florida. Clearly Bugs is some sort of castrating radical feminist.
That would explain the constant slobbering.
What a great expression. And no one under the age of 30 understands it, I’m guessing.
are you in…genius? are you in…capable? are you in…describable?
i agree, krista wins this round.
really, characteristics of many of the looney tunes characters can be ascribed to the neo-conservative movement. they are as focused on failure as wile e coyote, as greedy as daffy, they listen to others as well as foghorn leghorn, they shoot as straight as elmer fudd, are as interested in destroying the earth as marvin the martian, the list goes on…
plus, i hear, like pepe le pew, you can smell cheney a mile away.
Ask and ye shall receive.
Do you have one where Tom finally catches Jerry, too?
Yes, I actually had this exact same line of thought several months ago… even down to the Acme thing (although I didn’t call them no-bid contracts, that was clever).
No. Obviously Yosemite Sam (petulant, short-tempered, bad Southern accent) is Bush. Cheney is Elmer Fudd – same physique, same hairline, same level of skill with firearms.
Executive: Ok. We’ve narrowed it down to 2 possible names. Uh, all in favor of “Bugs Bunny”?
(everyone but Peter’s grandfather raises hands)
Executive: Mmm-hmm. And all in favor of “Ephraim The Retarded Rabbit”?
(Peter’s grandfather raises hand)
Peter’s Grandfather: Oh, you can all go to hell.
ZOIKS AND AWAY!!!!
Hey look, it’s Sam Brownback the mighty hunter!
Yosemite Sam and Mitt Romney do have one thing in common. They’re both varmint hunters.
Dodge! Turn! Parry! Thrust! (Which pretty much sums up the Gonzales defense strategy…)
On another Buah appointment hackery note…
This will never be picked up anywhere because it is so boring but Bush just appointed Margaret Peterlin to the assistant deputy position at the PTO.
The problem? Stuatorily folks in leadership positions need ot be licensed to practice before hte patent bar. Ms. Peterlin is not.
Basically they appointed someone with zero experience in patent and trademark law to help run the patent and trademark office.
how could Yosemite Sam be anyone but John Bolton?
See yon rich unwary traveller…I will rob him of his gold and give it to some poor, unworthy slob. Thus proving I am Robin Hood.

Thanks. I haven’t had much time to post here lately (organizing an international nuclear non-proliferation conference will do that), so I figured I might as well at least say something worthwhile.
Yeah, that would tend to keep one busy… so how many Americans are involved? Just curious.
About 6 or 7. It should be interesting, as it’ll be a pretty diverse group.
Well, I wish you constructive talks with rivetingly smart invitees.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if the Marine band played the Looney Tunes song instead of Hail to the Chief?

It’d certainly be more appropriate.
