small brush shouldn't fuck with big timber

Death's Door, the view from the Spanish announcers table: <strong>here come da plane</strong>!

Thursday, June 10

here come da plane!

The “I’m too old for this shit” quote of the week.

"Some of these people are not 13," Observed Margaret Tutwiler.

What happened was that just before Reagan’s coffin was to arrive at Andrews Air Force Base, A bunch of his old staffers and top administration officials were hanging out at a Senate glad-hand hall having drinks and talking old times and shit. When suddenly Capital Police ran into the reception room screaming shit about an incoming plane and that muthafucker’s had to get the fuck out and clear the building.
"This is not a drill! There is an incoming aircraft! You have one minute!"

Some of the group of people breakin ass running out of the building must’a looked like a blue hair who’s who of DC’s finest.

1. Former Secretary of State Alexander M. Haig Jr.80
2. former Vice President Dan Quayle. 57
3. Dr. Jeanne J. Kirkpatrick, a former United States ambassador to the United Nations. 77
4. former Attorney General Edwin Meese III. 73
5. Richard V. Allen, a former national security adviser;
6. Kenneth M. Duberstein, a former White House chief of staff. 59
7. Rupert Murdoch, chairman and chief executive of the News Corporation. 73
8. Tom Korologos, a Reagan White House aide and longtime Republican lobbyist who was recently an adviser in Baghdad to L. Paul Bremer III, the top American civilian administrator in Iraq. 63
9. Bob Colacello, a Vanity Fair writer who is working on a biography of Mrs. Reagan. 63
10. Margaret D. Tutwiler, a former Reagan White House aide who became the State Department spokeswoman in the first Bush administration and the ambassador to Morocco in the second. 54

From the New York Times;
“In a scene reminiscent of the evacuation of the White House on Sept. 11, 2001, women took off their heels and men took off their jackets, and everybody raced down the steps, hair and handbags flying, pursued by police officers who told them they could not stop in spite of the heat. By the time the group did stop at a patch of grass between the Senate building and Union Station, everyone was soaked with sweat”.

"and the monkey flipped the switch"

I think they all would have run with the same painic if someone had yelled, "Here comes Michael Moore, and he wants to interview you all for his next movie!!!"

Hell they might have ran faster if that was the case.......
