Long Hot Summer

Let's see now, Goss resigns as CIA Director, his third in command is caught up in a juicy hooker scandal and there is speculation that Goss is involved, too. Scooter Libby is having one bad day after another. It looks as though Carl Rove will be indicted. Rumsfeld is hanging on by a thread. Valerie Plame is writing a book, and it won't be complimentary of the present administration. Rush Limbaugh is a druggie, and he's not sorry about it.

Get out the popcorn. It's going to be an interesting summer.

Of course, there are other things that could make Bush's days gray and cloudy. The war in Iraq could get worse, there could be Osama sightings, with him looking at the camera and sticking his tongue out, or his middle finger extended, or both. He might even start lobbing rocks at windows in Baghdad, ala Ernest T. Bass. Saddam will probably not get the death penalty. Cheney's big mouth could get us back into a cold war with Russia. There could be another big hurricane anywhere from Texas to Pensacola, and it wouldn't be pretty.

The Fox folks will try to blow Patrick Kennedy's admissions of addiction all out of proportion, but it won't work, because Patrick has been very candid about his struggles with prescription drugs, and even cocaine, so there's nothing to get all bent out of shape over now.

Tony Snow might not be as thrilled about the job he asked for after all. He's going to have a fun first day Monday. Of course, I fully expect him to try to move the press coups out of the White House altogether. Then, listen to them howl.

Yes, it's going to be a fun summer.
