Heh.

Observing the presidential motorcade rolling by, NBC talking head Willie Geist just used the nickname for that huge new GMC-truck-cum-Caddy-limousine by saying "Yes, the Beast is passing right in front of us now."

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of Freepers suddenly snorted coffee through their noses...

Why was he riding? Way I heard it, he'd be slouching towards Bethlehem.

If they'd remarked on the smell of Brimstone, that would have been even better.

True, and so what? Bush the Younger's wife is a lady in the Mauve Decade sense of the word. Nobody gets that murderous Winnie Mandela necklace-them vibe from her. The seeds of Beast jokes sprout elsewhere.

Had it been Fox News the rest of the media would not be taking it so quietly and philosophically.
