Maureen Dowd: Dancing in the Dark (9/28 column)

I can't wait to see what's next.

Dick Cheney carpooling downtown with Brownie? Rummy Rollerblading down the bike path to the Pentagon? Condi huddling by a Watergate fireplace in a gray cardigan?

Maybe now that our hydrocarbon president is the conservation president, he'll downgrade from Air Force One to a solar-powered Piper Cub as he continues to stalk the Gulf Coast towns and oil rigs like Banquo's ghost.

The once disciplined and swaggering Bush administration has descended into slapstick, more comical even than having Clarence Thomas et al. sit in judgment as Anna Nicole Smith attempts to get more of the moolah of her late oil tycoon husband.

-snip-



Great column. She has scathing things to say about *'s own "conservation efforts," and Karen Hughes ("the Bush nanny who knows nothing about the Muslim world and yet is charged with selling the U.S. to it").

1. The best line in the article:
W. doesn't really need to worry about turning down the lights in the White House. The place is already totally in the dark.

:rofl:
