    Coffee Takes both Houses - Bush Disappointed

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    It was no surprise to many yesterday, when the tide of public sentiment turned against Bush’s Texas Cafe and installed a freshly roasted coffee regime. Deputy Barista Donald Rumsfeld resigned, but remained defiant about his decision to introduce fully automated ‘pod’ coffee systems to the administration.

    “People just don’t understand the complexity” he said with the President looking on. “There are so many variables, and I just needed to make it a lot simpler for us all. We knew Saddam was working on a new coffee blend to destroy our business and we had to take him down. I’m not sorry for the decisions I made and I stand by them.”

    “Donald Rumfeld has my thanks” murmured the President “and he leaves us with a legacy of drinkable coffee, but it is time we moved in a new direction”.

    The leader of the Democoffeecrats was positive about the future “The citizens of our great nation have spoken” she said jubilantly. “They have rejected the cheap, stale coffee propping up the Bush administration and demanded a fresh bean, roasted with care and brewed to perfection - and we are going to give it to them.”

    The reaction around the world was one of quiet approbation for the changes and an expressed desire to see a return of the America of the past where great coffee was the right of all.

    The electoral defeat has been blamed partly of Rumfeld’s flawed adventurism, but much of the collapse also resulted from recent scandals within the Republicannedcoffee ranks, most notably the inappropriate invitations by former congressman Foley (Rep. Fl.) to house pages to have a cup of instant coffee with him.

    “It is totally sick” said one of the pages who declined to be named “who would want to drink instant coffee with a congressman when I can get a real coffee at dozens of places around the Capitol?”

    Regardless of the outcome of the likely recount for the Senate race in Virginia, we can be certain that there will be a strong push for legislation banning the sale of ‘instant coffee’ and it is even conceivable that the United States might sign the Kyoto coffee protocol for sustainable coffee production.

    Whispers about closet Democoffeecrat ‘instant’ drinkers persist, and the next two years will be a critical time for them to demonstrate their committment to fresh coffee and that they are capable of leadership, pouring espressos and latte art. Failure to do so will cost them the White House in 2008 and a place in the world barista championships at the UN.

    Oh say can you see by the dawns early light
    What so proudly we thought was just Twilight
    Now appears to be a Black Helo in Flight
    Oer the Ramparts streaming they come
    And the rockets red glare has Grendel in sight
    Oer the land of the free and the home of the brave?

    We are watching you!

    I suspect that George Ws dream of being a greater president than his father are over. Its a pity he couldnt have limited the father/son rivalry to the golf course.......

    We can only hope that the debacle hes made of the Presidency and Iraq will finally put an end to the line of President Bushs.

    For those not in the know theyve been grooming his brother Jeb (Governor of Florida) as the next Republican candidate for the Presidency. His reward for putting Bush in office via his manipulation of the voting system (remember the hanging chads, dissallowed votes, and other dirty tricks in 2000 in Florida that gave Dubya the state and hence the election?). Jebs Secretary of state who did the dirty work directly got her reward when the Reps backed her for a House seat in 2002 and a Senate seat in this election. Fortunately she lost resoundingly. :)

    Java and 2mcm - bad idea.

    1. waste of a good Hummer
    2. waste of a good Shuttle

    Theyve both been riding too much - they can walk into the fire for once.

    Really interesting that the people now stepping into play in the executive are all Bush 41s closest allies.
