The next domino to fall

There's a wonderful sequence in the original Lethal Weapon movie where Mel Gibson, after having been tortured by the weird looking Vietnamese dude with the electro shocks, kills the guy and then a whole series of bad guys who run in. Mel, looking like he's going to burst a blood vessel in his head roars out "WHO'S NEXT???? WHO'S FUCKING NEXT??????"

May I make a suggestion?

What's funny about all this to me is how short a time all this has taken: could it only be two weeks ago that Susan "Darth" Estrich, former Dukakis campaign manager, was offering this advice to Democrats?

My Democratic friends are mad as hell, and they aren't going to take it any more. ...

The trouble with Democrats, traditionally, is that we're not mean enough....

Too much is at stake to play by Dukakis' rules and lose again. That is the conclusion Democrats have reached. ...

So watch out. Millions of dollars will be on the table. And there are plenty of choices for what to spend it on.....

Or maybe it will be Texas National Guardsmen for Truth, who can explain exactly what George W. Bush was doing while John Kerry was putting his life on the line. Perhaps with money on the table, or investigators on their trail, we will learn just what kind of wild and crazy things the president was doing while Kerry was saving a man's life, facing enemy fire and serving his country. ...

The arrogant little Republican boys who strutted around New York this week, claiming that they have this one won, would do well to take a step back. It could be a long and ugly road to November.

Indeed it has been. The Democrats followed Darth Estrich's advice, and we all know what followed: Kitty Kelley's book straight to the remainder bin, and Dan Rather's head stuffed and mounted for the wall in the Northern Alliance clubhouse out in the pin oak behind the garage at Jasperwood.

So my comment would be for those arrogant little Democratic girls who strutted around claiming they have Bush whacked: "neener!"

And in the immortal words of Bill the Cat: "THHPFFFT!"

UPDATE: The Commissar is preparing for the show trial. One ticket to Siberia, coming up....
