New Reep Talking Points: Fitzgerald Pushing for Presidential Lobotomy!
Republicans on the Hill are closing ranks and calling for an immediate end to the investigation of Karl Rove, on the grounds that it would rob President Bush of the only good brains he has to work with. Senate Reeptard Majority Leader Dennis Hastert spoke to the heart of the matter, saying, "This is an outrage! What are we discussing here?--removing the president's brain? Preposterous!" Other Senate Republicans showed their assent by nodding and harrumphing loudly. "What oh what would a brainless president do all day anyway?" whined Tom Delay pitiably.
But such a move would not be entirely without precedent; indeed, if Rove were to be fired now, it would only be the first time a sitting president's brain has been removed since the Ford administration.
