Forsook: Saint Stephen and Pastor Jeb 

Club for Greed
Stephen Moore, one of the dumbest guppies ever hatched from a think tank, gets flushed down his own "fabulous" gilded toilet:

Published: July 8, 2005
WASHINGTON, July 7 - A rift among the handful of millionaires behind the Club for Growth, a conservative fund-raising powerhouse, has degenerated into accusations of stolen donor lists and betrayed principles.

The dispute began in December when Stephen Moore, the organization's president, was privately ousted by the group's board and publicly announced his resignation. But as the disagreement becomes public, it threatens to confuse or divide other supporters of the group.


The dispute spilled out into the group's broader membership in late May, when Mr. Moore sent many of the club's members a fund-raising letter for his new group. "As you may have heard, I left the Club for Growth after I lost control of a board fight and was forced to resign as president and C.E.O. - despite our fabulous electoral successes in 2004," Mr. Moore wrote in the letter.


Some faulted what they called Mr. Moore's disorganized management in part for the narrow defeat of Representative Pat Toomey, one of the candidates the club backed most heavily, in his Republican primary challenge to Senator Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania.


Schiavo fiasco
Jeb Bu$h (R- the "In God We Trust" state) blows through the toll booth and scurries back down his damp hidey-hole before the Talibornagain can snatch him up by the tail and roast him over a slow fire:

Florida Closes Schiavo Freak Show (via NYT - login not required)
TALLAHASSEE, Fla., July 7 (AP) - A state attorney has found no evidence that Terri Schiavo's collapse 15 years ago involved criminal activity, and Gov. Jeb Bush on Thursday declared an end to Florida's involvement in the matter.

"Based on your conclusions, I will follow your recommendation that the inquiry by the state be closed," Mr. Bush said in a two-sentence letter to the prosecutor, Bernie McCabe of Pinellas and Pasco Counties.

Thank God for hurricanes.
