As you were

And so another morning dawns. Thanksgiving is history yet again. Full bellies and tender recollections. It was a day to suspend judgment and petty family squabbles. A day for the world to lay down its arms and set aside bitter rivalries, giving thanks for life and freedom. A night to toddle off to bed for sweet dreams. Also for reflections on the sweet potatoes from hell, concocted by cousin Margaret, whose attempts to channel Lynn Rosetto Kaspar are a dismal failure. Read on.

A night to lie there wondering how Uncle John got to be such a bloviating bigot. A night to be a little bent out of shape because that kid of yours didn't bother to call, which is totally consistent with their self-absorbed nature. And what was that news snippet just before bedtime about 200 people being blown to smithereens in Sadr City?

Roll over and grab a Rolaid. Make that two.

Here's the little nugget that'll be the pea under my mattress tonight. Crooks and Liars cites a Political Wire story making the rounds that Dick Cheney is verklempt over W's dismissal of Donald Rumsfeld. Yes, folks, the man with the heart of stone and stents is really a deeply compassionate human being. Who knew? And now his long-time and increasingly incompetent pal has become the latest sacrificial lamb in the rabbit-hole world of "Don't look at me'"HE did it!" Well, yeah, he did, but he had a lot of help.

The picture that's being painted is that Bush acted more or less unilaterally when he sacked Rummy, breaking Cheney's (class?) _____. I would submit that that's mega malarkey with a half twist. Even factoring in his detached and strangely clueless persona, W does nothing'"repeat, nothing'"that has not been thoroughly vetted by Darth Cheney, Karl Rove (of course he isn't gone!) and the other usual suspects.

I'm not sure I can articulate what I think is going on, but that's never stopped me and won't stop me now.

Cheney and Rummy have long been joined at the hip. They're partners in crime. The election was a stinging indictment of Rumsfeld and, by extension, Cheney, with Bush as their front man.

In order to make yet another attempt to salvage Bush's presidency and also to salvage something'"anything!'"for the Republicans, it has become more important than ever for Cheney to exit, stage right.

So let's say they orchestrate a growing, very public rift (positioned as secret inside story) between the veep and his prez? An ideological chasm, opening wide. Bush frantically attempts to moderate his positions, which ratchets up the contrast between the baby-faced frat boy and the Dark Lord.

The game that's afoot is to try to make Bush look as though he's had an epiphany, however reluctantly. That he's really, really listening to the people as any good Republican would do (now). That his stentless heart is pure, in spite of Cheney's efforts to make him stay the course by every definition.

So sometime in early 2007, Cheney becomes the public villain in the piece and the administration's martyr du jour. He resigns "for health reasons." Bush nominates a popular moderate to make all things new. (Bill Frist need not apply.) Congress approves the nomination.

There is some measure of national and international relief, couched in no small amount of skepticism, because it's what the past six years have taught us. Still, anything is bound to be better than the snarly old guard (not to be confused with sweethearts like James Baker and Robert Gates), of which Cheney and Rumsfeld are poster boys.

It's a twofer. The new veep becomes the Republican heir apparent to the presidency in 2008 and for the first time in his presidency, Bush appears to be responding to the will of the American people.

Whaddaya think (apart from observations that I'll never make it as a political analyst)?
