Haha, hahahah. I don't care if this has been posted already, I didn't see it so I had to share.
I know it's the Globe, chill out, it is damn funny. I was hoping more for Bush is the son the monkey boy and Elvis breed on a alien spacecraft, but this will do nicely:
This is already been picked over by Buzzflash, so here it is:
"Bush Marriage Over! Laura Erupts After Drinking Binge," is the cover story of the October 23, 2006, National Examiner.
Globe - Bush Divorce Deal"Bush Divorce Deal: Laura Wins, Condi Loses," is the "World Exclusive" that the Globe ran in a photo-filled cover on August 14, 2006.
You may want to patronizingly dismiss tabloids, but remember that they almost did Bill Clinton in, as the mainstream papers cribbed from them to run front-page stories on Bill and Hillary.
This time, the mainstream media is adopting a double-standard and avoiding the allegations that the tabloids are boldly making. But the point to remember here is that the real readers of these publications are, in large part, the people who normally have voted for Bush.
Muahaha, drinking and divorce? Now all the minions in check out lines across America are reading at least that headline.
Please, OH PLEASE, will someone at the next press conference ask Tony Snow or Bush about this? I know it's the Globe, but making them defend will always leave a shadow of doubt in some people's minds.
I, for one, am rushing out to buy a copy, on newstands now. It will be perfect bathroom material, I suggest you do the same. Note, this cover is from August, as pointed out by Donna in Rome, the new issue will have the headline: Bush Marriage Over! Laura Erupts After Drinking Binge . So please, collect them all.
You will regret not having this in your archives later.
Update!!! From Wonketter via Al Rodgers in the comments:
Rocky shoals for Bush marriage? Informed sources Inside the Beltway report that First Lady Laura Bush has established temporary residence in the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC as a result of a tiff with President Bush over an extramarital relationship involving her husband. Mr. Bush's tryst is said to involve Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. It is not known how long Mrs. Bush plans to remain at the Mayflower, however, her security detail has been present at the hotel during hours when the First Lady would normally be residing in the White House.
While she was National Security Adviser, Rice, who has never been married, referred to George W. Bush as "my husband" before she corrected herself and said, "President. Bush" Rice was speaking at a dinner hosted by New York Times bureau chief Philip Taubman when she made her "husband" remarks.
I know, another questionable source full of rumors, just consider me the Matt Drudge of the left. Can someone in DC verify if Laura Bush is shaking up at the Mayflower Hotel?
So I was trying to figure out what Condi lost, so I put up a poll. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated in the comments.
No, I don't take this seriously, but yes, I think it could be possible.
But if I had said in August that there were a nest of pedophiles in the House, I would have been derided as a crank.
As the late and lamented Hunter Thompson said "when going gets weird, the weird turn pro".
