Astrological Musings

I will make a flimsy attempt to link this post to astrology by saying this event sums up the current transit of Saturn to George Bush’s ascendant/descendant axis by putting further stress on his public persona (ascendant). Editor and Publisher describes the performance by Stephen Colbert at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in this article. One Good Move has links to various video sites. It’s definitely worth watching, this is Colbert at his best.

He noted former Ambassador Joseph Wilson in the crowd, just three tables away from Karl Rove, and that he had brought ” Valerie Plame.” Then, worried that he had named her, he corrected himself, as Bush aides might do, “Uh, I mean… he brought Joseph Wilson’s wife.” He might have “dodged the bullet,” he said, as prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald wasn’t there.

Colbert also made biting cracks about missing WMDs, “photo ops” on aircraft carriers and at hurricane disasters, melting glaciers and Vice President Cheney shooting people in the face. He advised the crowd, “if anybody needs anything at their tables, speak slowly and clearly on into your table numbers and somebody from the N.S.A. will be right over with a cocktail. “

Observing that Bush sticks to his principles, he said, “When the president decides something on Monday, he still believes it on Wednesday – no matter what happened Tuesday.”

Clearly the tide has turned and the gloves are now off as the press begins to confront the President on his abysmal record.
