Britt Hume says there's laughter in the White House
Apparently over the Cheney resigning rumor.Somehow I doubt there's much laughter in the White House. Hume is delusional.

catterwalling? Uh-oh, terra alert coming.

6. Hume NEVER strays from the GOP line
There are some RW pundits who will on occasion go off the reservation on some issue or another but Hume ain't one of them.

from saying "It's a good day to buy stock in Rolaids"

8. I'm inclined to believe Hume may have this right about the Cheney rumor
we all know cheney will not resign.

Rumor is dumb

dumb is funny.


Simple.

9. I think they call it "gallows humor"
There was a lot of it in Hitler's bunker, too.

10. cope
But at least Hitler and company had plenty of crystal meth (invented in Germany during the Nazi regime) to entertain them and dull their senses. I wonder how our soon-to-be sliced and diced administration is managing to cope these days.

13. Bush is boozing it up for sure!
I'm not sure what evil monger Cheney is doing to blow off some steam? I'm sure he's confused since his usual defense mechanism of going after the bastards that go against him got him into this mess.

18. I think...
you'll find that was METHADONE. It was developed for Guerring so he could get over his Opium addiction without losing his command. My daughter was a methadone user. This is what I was told.

12. Yep, I'll bet that's it.
That's da kind.

Or maybe they're still so arrogant that they cling to their old delusions that they still have everybody fooled. None are so blind as those who will not see. Whether it's a large chunk of the American electorate, or the pantiwaists in the White House who flatter themselves into thinking they're invincible.

What's that saying - pride goeth before a fall - ?

16. Gibbering is not exactly laughter
Gibbering is insane uncontrollable anti-social behavior, not really laughter.

19. It was on the TPM for today:
1) Suck up to Administration
2) "Mention there's laughter at the notion of Cheney resigning."

21. If I remember my history correctly, the band played
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 01:59 PM by Uncle Joe
while the Titanic sank to keep the passenger's moral up.

P.S. Take a deep breath Britt.

22. CNN's WH correspondent Dana Bash said they are in "torture" right now
She used the word "torture" to describe mood among WH staffers. But knowing how much this bunch loves torture, maybe the sadomasochists are nervously laughing too?

26. In lunatic asylums there is a lot of laughing, too
That doesn't mean that the occupants are either sane or unworried.

28. I believe it
I don't think any number of indictments will make this administration offer up anyone significant for the sacrificial lamb. They'll just pull the "innocent til proven guilty" arguement and delay the trial until after 2006 or 08

I know I'd be boozing it up if I was about to go to the slammer.

31. Brit Hume was thought of a legitimate reporter
until he sold his soul to Faux News.
