Meet The New Boss...He Is The Old Boss

Ha! We knew this was coming. You've pushed the president a little too far, what with your boy in a bubble analogies and your clueless George label. Now you're going to see some leadership Buster, and you better be sitting up straight when it calls your name.

OK, we have no idea what that last sentence means. What we do know is that the president has put a firm hand on the rudder of the ship of state and now resolutely guides her past the reef of despair and out into the open sea of hope and opportunity.

Oops. Did it again. What we mean to say is Bush fired Andy Card and in a surprise move reached out from his inner circle to his semi-inner circle to tap Joshua Bolten as his new Chief of Staff.

Got 'cher bold leadership right here Mr. New York Times reading, latte sipping, French lover.

And we ain't done leadershipping yet.
Signaling the potential of a possible shake-up among president Bush's senile advisers, the new White House chief of staff told top presidential aides Monday to expect changes that "refresh and re-energize the team."

Oh, yeah baby! Welcome to the jungle boys and girls. Tell 'em what they're in for Mr. Bolten. Lay it on 'em. Light 'em up.

He invited anyone who is thinking of leaving before year's end to do so now.

Bam! How do you like us now Demoncrats? Ready for a little...wait a minute...what?

Bolten did not ask for anyone's resignation in his first Monday morning staff meeting with the president's senior aides, presidential spokesman Scott McClellan said. No one stepped forward to say they would leave, either, McClellan said. just thought...the know...umm...

McClellan said Bolten told the aides to expect "some changes and adjustments" after he's gone through the process of moving plants into his new office. At the same time, McClellan said that "you have to balance change with continuity."

Continuity? You mean you want things to continue like they have been?

Josh talked about how this is a time to refresh and re-energize the team and for all of us to renew our commitment to being able to walk and chew gum at the same time as we go forward," McClellan said. "And we're thinking brown ties to match our noses would do the trick. Oh, and we'll also need some more copies of that manual that tells us how to tell our elbows from a hole in the ground."

If anyone wants us we'll be down in the basement banging our heads on the floor.
