Should Conservatives Stage Bloodless Coup in Washington, D.C.?
John W. Lillpop
President Bush's approval ratings have plummeted to 32%, and dropping like a sabotaged port on the eastern seaboard. Dick Cheney weighs in at 18%, roughly equal to what Osama bin Laden polls in certain liberal districts.
With the U.S. government in utter shambles & all surviving soldiers from the Republican Revolution in full retreat, a new and grand strategy is needed to avoid permanent minority status for the GOP.
What sort of strategy?
How about a bloodless coup? A gut-wrenching, legitimate BREAKING NEWS coup, crafted and staged by conservatives?
Here's how it would come down:
-Dick Cheney resigns.
-President Bush nominates Tom Tancredo as VP.
-Once Tancredo is confirmed, Bush retires to his Crawford ranch to be with non-hostile tumbleweed and "good-hearted, hard-working" illegal immigrants who consider Bush's English perfectly normal.
-Tancredo ascends to the Oval Office and nominates Duncan Hunter as VP.
-Immediately after being sworn in, Hunter convinces Tancredo to buttress the Mexican border with about 100,000 armed troops. Responsible federal, state and local law enforcement agencies are ordered to round up any and all illegal immigrants for immediate deportation.
The Tancredo-Hunter team would be able to tackle many other problems exacerbated or caused by Bush. Like missteps on the war on terror, out of control spending, huge federal deficits, FEMA dysfunction and so forth.
This dynamic duo would surely restore public confidence enough to assure GOP control over both houses of Congress in 2008.
Best of all, they would give Republicans a terrific presidential ticket for 2008!
