Hide the Salami

Howard Dean on MSNBC's Hardball:

Well, certainly the president can claim executive privilege. But in the this case, I think with a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, you can't play, you know, hide the salami, or whatever it's called. He's got to go out there and say something about this woman who's going to a 20 or 30-year appointment, a 20 or 30-year appointment to influence America. We deserve to know something about her.

Now, I love Howard Dean to death. I think he's great at fundraising and being on message, but "hide the salami?" Does he know what that means? Did he just accuse Bush of playing hide the salami with Harriet Miers?

Does he realize the visual images he just put into the heads of all the nice unsuspecting Hardball watchers out there? Does he realize they just might need therapy or at least economy size bottles of brain sanitizer? Geez. Just looking at the photos of those two love birds is more than enough to creep anyone out.

Just stick with "Republican Culture of Corruption," Howard. That seems to be working and is ringing truer and truer every day.

    A female co-worker of mine once said, in reference to a third party, "I think he's trying to give me the reacharound," at which several of her co-workers raised their eyebrows. We tried to convince her that she might have meant to say "runaround," but she stuck to her guns and insisted she was right in the first place. We never did figure out whether or not the reacharound was wanted, or indeed fulfilled. Oh, how we laughed.

    I was wondering what you'd write about with a title like "Hide the Salami".

    bush has no taste in women - but then again, chimpy has no taste period.
