An Outside View, and a Question

A good look from the outside at our election woes:


And my question: If the assertion in the article is right, that senior Republicans don't think Bush is fit to serve either, might he be forced to step down from office a few months after the election? Possibly on medical grounds, for example.

And if he does, what would a Cheney presidency be like? I prefer to contemplate more cheerful subjects, such as root canal work and slow starvation, but I think this one now bears some thought. If boosh is forced to step down in '05, what happens next, and what does the world look like by 2008? Would the '08 election be rigged, or might Cheney find some other way to get re-elected? Where will the country have gone, and how badly would we fail to recognize it?
