According to Washington Post staffer Peter Baker the good folks in the White House are plumb tuckered-out from all the hard work that they do.

"Of all the reasons that President Bush is in trouble these days, not to be overlooked are inadequate REM cycles."

Of course! It’s the long hours and lack of sleep that have been causing all the problems, not the other way round!
No wonder Bush has taken more days off than any other President in history; like he said, "it’s hard work."
The administration is probably skipping breakfast too!

So now we have a perfectly reasonable explanation for Bush constantly falling of his bike and the country being driven into a ditch every other week, what’s to be done?

Guzzling handfuls of No-Doz is one option, but I’d suggest a long vacation instead.

Maybe then I could get a decent night's sleep. too.
And come to think of it

I keep hoping that we'll wake up from the nightmare that is the Bush administration.

It must be exhausting running around the country, repeating the same speech for years on end; bringing 'freedom' to the Middle East and McCarthyism to the homeland; listening to the whiners who lost everything in a hurricane he didn't know was coming (oh,those tiresome, videotaped briefings); and having his head so far up his backside -- reading the entrails like a good ol'evangelical boy, sniffing out the 'evil doers'.
Yeah, Dubya needs a good long rest.

This is what happens when Cheney and his cadre of living dead ghouls steadily drain your blood for five years. Little wonder they’re so plum tuckered.

Hey, 5th, nice to hear from you. (I would have responded sooner but I've been out quail hunting.)
Thanks for putting the Lunch Counter on your blog-roll.

I know I'd sleep better if this administration would just rest in peace.

Speaking of sleep, what’s up Brit? Are you Zzzzz?

For some curious reason, your post made me think of the film “Dark City” (one of my faves!). It’s a dystopic sci-fi vision where earth circa 1940 or so has been taken over by an alien species who inhabit the bodies of the dead and every night “stop time” (they call it “the tuning”) and put everyone to sleep while they sift through their possessions, memories and personalities, then mix everything up and implant new “realities” into their consciousness while at the same time shifting their human subjects’ paradigm, quite literally, by throwing up new buildings, homes, etc. and instantly rearranging the furniture in their cage, so to speak.

Given the last several days of relentless propaganda from Bush & Co., I simply cannot imagine what brought that to mind.
