Poppy Bush is still dead, and out of his great respect and well-known admiration for the Bushes, Comrade Prznint has ordered all the trappings of a state funeral.
We noted earlier that also out his well-known admiration for the Bushes, the Russian Usurper cancelled what was sure to be a rolicking press conference that would perhaps touch upon the Little Kremlin-on-the-Potomac investigation.
And the Republicans, also out of their great respect and admiration for the Bushes, have decided to postpone shutting down the gubmint while the nation mourns the loss of the former CIA Director who brought us the October Surprise, Willie Horton, a war for oil, and other assorted points of light (I’m told that there are one thousand):
There will almost certainly not be a shutdown this week on account of the death of former President George H.W. Bush. But, according to multiple people involved, consider this a brief respite from what looms ahead. The fight is still happening behind the scenes — and will spill back into public next week.
In other words, the gubmint will shutdown after Poppy is planted.
