"The First Rule of Holes..."

... as the inimitable Molly Ivins would say, is "when you find yourself in one, stop digging."

Sage advice for just about anyone... except Chris Shays, who, finding himself in a hole, just leans on the shovel a little harder.

Kindasleazza Rice, having already dug one hole for herself in primetime at the 9/11 commission hearing, tries for a brand-new one. Sort of a Condo of holes....

Don Sherwood, as we've seen, seems to think no one will notice him in that hole he's dug for himself.

Denny the Hutt would be well-advised to just shut up and take the next few weeks off--he'd come out better in the election if he did--but, noooooo, Jabba the Hastert wants to take a few more licks with the laborer's friend.

Tom Reynolds, thinking he knows which end of the shovel is which, proves that he can dig a nice, deep hole for himself without having a clue, and also wind up with the shovel up his ass.

And, the king of holes, the Grand Asshole, as it were, Georgie W., given a chance by the press to, you know, sort of, just nudge up against reality and admit, after years of increasingly bad news, that Iraq isn't going _that well_, that the press offers him a hand up out that hole he so dearly loves, and instead, he seems to get out the power equipment in his attempt to drill himself into the ground:

SUZANNE MALVEAUX, CNN: Thank you, Mr. President. Back on Iraq, a group of American and Iraqi health officials today released a report saying that 655,000 Iraqis have died since the Iraq war. That figure is 20 times the figure that you cited in December at 30,000. Do you care to amend or update your figure and do you consider this a credible report?

PRESIDENT BUSH: No, I don’t control it a credible report, neither does General Casey and neither do Iraqi officials. I do know that a lot of innocent people have died and it troubles me and grieves me. And I applaud the Iraqis for their courage in the face of violence. I am, you know, amazed that this is a society which so wants to be free that they’re willing to — you know, that there’s a level of violence that they tolerate.

By the time he leaves office, George is going to be so deep that everyone's gonna recognize Bush not as "Dubya," but, rather, as "The Mohole A-hole."

Oh, yeah, speaking of holes, anyone seen or heard of KKKarl Rove lately?

Just wondering... when a Bushie drops out of sight, there's probably been some hole-digging goin' on.
