Wheels Coming Off The Wagon?

It sure looks like things are going poorly for the Bush crime family over in the White House and Congress. The latest NBC / Wall Street Journal poll has Bush below 40% popularity, Tom DeLay is under multiple indictment, Bill Frist's insider trading excuse story gets weaker by the day, and Joe Wilson may get to see Karl Rove frog-marched out of the White House after all. Jack Abramoff's tentacles seem to tie it all together.

So why am I not overjoyed at all of this? Because we've seen these guys on the ropes before, and they have amazing resiliency, if you call vindictive attacks and swift-boating attack ads resiliency.

I still can't imagine the One True Party relinquishing power now that they have it. We can only hope that there are enough honest soldiers, sailors, Marines, and airmen left when the time comes that a military takeover is not possible, but I would not put it past these guys to try.

They still have control of the voting machines in many jurisdictions, I assume, and they can certainly muster enough Rehnquist-style voter intimidation (he dabbled in it back in the day, don'tcha know).

It ain't over 'til it's over, and even then, Bush still has his Magic Pardon Pen in it's fur-lined Magic Box under his throne.
