The Eons Are Closing!


Busy end to a busy week here in Butterland. And I'm on the road today, going down, down, down, not into a burning ring of fire but rather the hot, musky heart of Missouri. More later, but in an extra-busy news week, one question stands out above the rest:

Would Jessica Simpson be safe from the Wrath of Rove (really Bushrove) if he wasn't busy with problems of his own?

She's certainly vulnerable to being discredited - whom isn't? She was seriously off-script this week, complaining about missing video tapes and other whitewash vis a vis her recent trip to Iraq. Finally, this whole dang Eye-rack deal is taking shape in an EZ-to-understand way! You have questionable Jessica on the one side, deviating from the party line - not at all like loyal celebrities were in the 1940s! - and, on the other, America's (other) Sweetheart who is, so far, still loyal. Take a tip (updated) from LBJ, Mr Bush and tread carefully: if you lose Britney, you've lost the country.

[UPDATE: I'd foolishly and wrongly assumed that everyone had been following the contours of this debate, so in the interest of being clearer, allow me to remind you of Ms. Spears existential comment via a Drudgeflash in Sept. 2003:

SPEARS: Honestly, I think we should just trust our president in every decision that he makes and we should just support that, you know, and be faithful in what happens.

Mark ye well. Be 'faithful in what happens', people.]
